Brown ale is a style of beer made with a dark or brown malt. The term brown beer was first used by London brewers in the late 1600s to describe their products, such as mild ale. Today there are brown ales made in several regions, most notably England, Belgium and North America. Beers termed brown ale include sweet, low alcohol beers such as Manns Original Brown Ale, medium (alcoholic) strength amber beers of moderate bitterness such as Newcastle Brown Ale, malty and hoppy beers such as Sierra Nevada Brown Ale.
