AKA - the satisfier (in the beer sense!), a character filled American style brown ale. When you indulge in a Growler, you will experience complex buiscuity and malt qualities, with hints of dark fruit aroma. The Growler has a rich brown colour with a medium body - satisfy yourself with one of these.

Pours a dark cola brown, small beige head. A lot of malt sweetness in the aroma, caramel, nutty. The taste is a touch artificial feeling for me, like a sweet brown syrup was used. As I go on I get a little more appealing hop flavour coming through but I wished for much more to balance the malty biscuity side. It went down slick and oily a touch, low carbonation. Just some off parts here detracted from the whole. A lively hop-assertive approach would have helped.

Westkyoto77 (623) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 1, 2015
On tap at Tsubu. Dark nutty brown, thin head. Some caramel and toast in the aroma, with a hint of raisins. It did give the biscuitty flavours as advertised. Medium sweetness, nice balanced richness. Grew on me- would definitely have again.

There is cocoa and carob on the nose at first then it opens up to reveal savoury fruit like raisins, muscatels and caramelised orange peel. Looks pretty damn good; radiant cola brown with ruby highlights. Mountainous, audible off-white foam that leaves a trail of messy lace. The palate is rather dry, dusty and malt driven giving off more a Northern Brown sort of flair. Light butter and cocoa amongst some chocolate and woody notes. Minor astringent and phenolic tail end fades off nicely into more malt in thee finish. Body is on the lean side chilled but more rounded at a higher mercury. Carbonation is its real downfall. Too aggressive making it foam and fizz violently on the tongue. Otherwise this is not too shabby a session ale. Would like to know if the batch is fresh!? Tasty. (33cL, no date stamp, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

From a bottle. Very gassy (a little too much), pours like a coke, a little bit of coffee on the back, very nice once it settles down.

Bottle. This one was sitting around for almost 2 years, so it’s a bit unfair of me to rate it properly. However, it is recommended not to drink a 2 year old bottle of this beer.

Tasting at Plonk. Rich malty flavours with some hop notes following. Not bad.

Muggus69 (2142) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle, Earl’s Juke Joint, Newtown, Sydney Dark brown body, pours a dense off-white foam. Nice nose of nutty, biscuity malts with notes of chocolate & hop citrus. Medium body, nice chewy malt texture, reasonably lively carbonation. Palate delivers plenty of malt; biscuit, toasted nuts, cocoa with hop citrus and woody spice. Good bitterness on a dry finish. Tasty stuff!

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2014
Pours a murky brown with a tan head. Roasty aroma with some caramel and cocoa. Surprisingly mild flavour, mostly of roasted grains, toffee and chocolate. A decent, but not spectacular brown ale.

bottle from nirvana liquors, bondi beach. light brown with a bit of murk and a slim head; plenty of caramel in the aroma with generic citric hops; low carbonation; light bitterness, cookie dough. seems a bit subdued for a beer called growler
