”Poor old misunderstood brown ale... This is perhaps the most versatile style of beer in the world, yet it is often frowned upon, but why? Is it because the word BROWN doesn’t cling right, perhaps it leads the mind towards less appetizing things? Is it because the colour BROWN is less snazzy than, say ’golden’?? Or is it because the duopoly of NZ brewing have driven the BROWN style into oblivion by claiming the style for their most unattractive products??? We’ll let you think about that while you sip this beer, either in the sun on the beach or in front of the barbie, with your afternoon steak and cheese pie, with your Sunday roast or just by itself because you are thirsty and deserve a treat! Chances are this is unlike any Brown Ale you have ever tasted, it is malty, hoppy and flavourful. Some might say it is Brown Ale re-defined, we’d say it’s REWIRED. Cheers!”

Plovmand (7758) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a creamy dense longlasting light tan head. The aroma is fruity hoppy, toasted caramel, light chocolate and nuts. Quite malty and fruity hoppy flavour with a long bitter finish. Light chocolate and citrus notes. Very well made.

bmeup (635) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - JAN 3, 2011
This is a very good clear dark bown ale, tight packed light brown head lasted forever. Slight burnt grain with a sweet appealing aroma. Hop and malt character is great. A little hoppier than usual BA and goes well with pork and apple pie.

bluevegie (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2010
Bright and clear amber brown body with lasting tan head. Sweet aroma, brown sugar, caramel and raisins. Mainly malty taste with good bitterness, also a touch of liquorice, medium to full body. Very drinkable.

Really enjoyed the nutty characters of this beer, it was easy drinking, no overwhelming flavours and good balance with the bitterness.

hawthorne00 (3422) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2010
Clear mahogany with a beige head. Smells of burnt sugars, apples, peaches, citrus, grasses. Taste has lot of Australian-like caramel sweetness with a bit of fruit to round it out. There’s a little sourness under the (just over-) balancing bitterness. Crisp hoppy finish. I suppose this is about what you’d think - it’s an English style beer with slightly plainer malt and punchy Kiwi hop flavours.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 10, 2010
Bottle. Pours a nice deep brown with a reddish tinge near the side of the glass. Smallish tan coloured head that hangs around till the end. Good lacing. Good looking beer. Aromas are quite sweet with plenty of toffee and dark caramel. A little roasted malt and a huge floral hit from the hops. Really nice aromas. Flavours are equally as good with heaps of toffee up front with some bitterness at the finish thanks to the hops and the toasted malt. Just a touch of sourness balances the whole thing out. Mouthfeel is just a little thin but still a bloody great beer all the same, Really enjoyed this one.
