3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown with clear dark ruby.Very nice rich frothy head,extremely lacey.
Aroma is kind of weird like burnt cookies maybe some dark fruits and a particular yeast. Some dusty mustyness(nutty?) Some mild choc/vannilla tones.
Good mouthfeel in taste flavor is a bit harsh and roasty especially the finish,fairly robust I guess,with choc/roast.LIngering bitter/astringent.Maybe burnt nuts as far as a nut taste. Dry finish-astringent/diety-dont like the finish. Not too into the overall flavor of this at the moment. Will try the rest of the bomber on another day.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Firstly: I’m not a brown ale fan, but figured that if anyone could do it right, especially with English ingredients, it’d be Ale Smith. Deep ruby/brown pour with light tan/ beige head, good lacing and a persistent 1/2-1 finger creamy head. aroma is of hazel nut, caramel, manuka honey, light spiciness, bread crusts and toast. Flavour is crisp forest floor, brown bread, nutty, light roast/toast, light toffee and biscuit and great moderate herbal bitterness with a suggestive floral note. Finish is nicely hoppy with more bread and dry roast peanut. Palate is medium bodied with noderate creaminess, just the right amoynt of prickle from carbonation and straddkes both subtle richness and quaffable freshness. Really well made, top-class brown ale. If only English brown ales tasted this good from UK breweries!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2012-01-18. Dark brown body with a modest beige head. 3+ Dry toasty roasty aroma, hints at green vegetation. Flavour is similar. Dry roasty roasty malt, light bitterness, lingering green veg/hops and coffee grounds like roast in the finish. Average palate is softly carbonated and suits it. A nice beer that is not really to my tastes, though I suspect it might score slightly better on its own rather than in the middle of trying other beers. Bottle from Consumers Beverages, Niagara Falls
