COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
”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!”

Cloudy, murky brown color with sediment... Light brown colored head and a sweet, malty, deliciously earthy nose. It’s light in the mouth, slightly disappointing, and yet a little different from what you’d expect from a brown ale... In a good way. This is a little too carbonated, though, and I think it negatively affects the flavor. Eh.

RasmusOtt (1489) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2011
Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma is milk chocolate, nuts, caramel, darker malts, toffee, light hops and sweet liquorice. Taste is nuts, hops, pine, toffee, caramel, liquorice and some milk chocolate.

Yorker (1476) - Herning, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2012
50 cl bottle @ home. Pours slightly reddish brown with some sediment and a large off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is nuts, toasted, almost roasted, malts, fruity hops. Flavour is pretty similar to the aroma with a slightly bitter finish.

Reimer96 (1464) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 26, 2013
Pours a clear dark brown with a big frothy brown head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of citrusy and grassy hops, slight roasted malt, hint of caramel sweetness. Taste is grassy hops, roasted malts, coffee and sweet toffee on the finish with a nice dry finish and a smooth bitterness on the end. Very good hoppy brown ale and another beauty from 8 wired.

gEUS (1392) - Linden, BELGIUM - NOV 8, 2012
500 ml bottle - pours brown, gushing with a head that is inches thick and stays on for a long time. Had to wait until it was warmed up to room tempretature to smell something and for the head to disappear. After that, the aroma is very elegant: leather, honey, eoasted malt, caramel. Light body with overwhelming carbonation, taste of salted caramel, plums, raisins.

Japalo (1391) - DENMARK - JUN 9, 2012
Bottle. Dark amber. Half finger foam. Faint caramel aromas. Sharp bitterness blended with some acid maybe from the malt! Dry finish. Not the Best from this excellent brewer.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - AUG 23, 2011
Bottle at BrewDog Edinburgh. Dark brown, small white head fades to nothing. Nose is some sort of lager grain, hint of citrus and some subtle coffee. interesting mix. Fruity citrus palate with rounded coffee and toasty malt notes. Pronounced bitter finish. Really nice, interesting brown ale.

angel77 (1283) - oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 13, 2013
Botella de 65 cl en el Lúpulo. Octubre de 2012. Una Brown Ale sin mas. Cuerpo ligero - medio se bebe bastante bien. Abajo queda la etiqueta para el próximo día que la pruebe. """Pobre viejo brown ale incomprendido ... Este es quizás el estilo más versátil de la cerveza en el mundo, sin embargo, a menudo es mal visto, pero ¿por qué? ¿Es porque la palabra MARRÓN no se aferra a la derecha, tal vez lleva la mente hacia cosas menos apetecibles? ¿Es porque el color marrón es menos llamativo que, por ejemplo ’de oro’? ¿O es porque el duopolio de NZ cervecera han impulsado el estilo MARRÓN en el olvido al afirmar el estilo de sus productos menos atractivas??? Dejaremos que usted piensa acerca de eso mientras toma esta cerveza, ya sea en el sol en la playa o en la parte delantera de la Barbie, con su carne por la tarde y el pastel de queso, con el asado de los domingos o sólo por sí mismo, porque tienes sed y merece un regalo! Es probable que esto se diferencia de cualquier Ale Brown que he probado nunca, es a malta, lúpulo y sabrosa. Algunos podrían decir que es Ale Brown redefinió, diríamos que ha reconectado. ¡Salud!
