Hailing all the way from Tampa, Florida the Maduro is one of those rare beer that takes a style that few people get excited over and elevates it to become something sublime. The masters at Cigar City took a Northern English-style brown ale and gave it a slight American-craft twist. First they added flaked oats to give it a smooth, silky body that takes a complex, roasty, toasty, chocolaty malt bill and makes it extra smooth and drinkable. Second they gave it a little more booze and body than it’s Northern English forefathers.
Smooth, complex and highly drinkable beer that pairs well with a mild cigar.
