BC Craft Beer Review – Fernie Brewing First Trax Brown Ale

Fernie Brewing First Trax Brown AleFernie Brewing – First Trax Brown Ale: A brown ale brewed in Fernie, BC at 5% abv poured from a can into a pub style glass.

Aroma and Appearance: It pours a brown colour with no visible carbonation and a thin layer of foam. The aroma is mostly nutty, earthy and molasses.

Flavour: I got a lot of earth and nuts from this one as well as mushrooms and molasses with a bit of toffee and an overall thick body.

Overall Impression: I thought it was pretty basic, good but nothing special.

Rating: I gave it a 5/10, average rating, better choice than a Newcastle brown ale.

Food Pairing: I had it with sliders, but I think steak loaded with mushrooms and gravy would be a good choice.

When it comes to Brown Ales, I prefer supper nutty one’s like Cannery’s Naramata Nut Brown or Whistler’s Chestnut Brown Ale – check out my reviews of these here.
