Excellent dark brown pour with a nice tan head and some lacing. Aroma of Cita hops and a little spice. I’ve heard of this new hop variety but have never tasted it. Medium body with a lightly roasted malt and spice taste. Clean somewhat dry finish. An excellent brown ale.

33 cl bottle, Sheffield, UK via The Dram Shop. Medium brown, lighter appearance than cola. Balanced aroma, sweet caramel with floral hops. Medium body, sharp spice then a long building sweetness on the finish. Quite nice, very American in style compared to what I’ve been drinking recently.

Pours dark brown copper color with a foamy khaki head. Aroma is metallic roasted malt. Taste is bitter roasted malt with a hop presence and some metallic spice in the finish and some dark pitted fruit too. Palate is thin to medium and finishes dry. Decent beer that has a good roasty malt presence.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Roasted choco-caramel aroma. Clear yet heavy looking dark brown appearance with mild lacing. Oaty, malty taste with just enough contrasting hops. Foamy medium body, seems like a draught pour. Reminds one of old English style brown ales...only not the crap ones.

SMAK: Na pocz?tku chmiele ameryka?skie z wyczuwalny cytrusami. Pó?niej dochodzi do g?osu slodowo??, taka troch? karmelowo-landrynkowa. Wed?ug mnie troch? za s?odko.
ZAPACH: Cytrusy skontrowane slodowo?ci?.
WYGLAD: Br?z, ciemny bursztyn. Piana zbita, trzymaj?ca si? do?? d?ugo. Pod koniec zostaje cienka obwodka.
Przyzwoite piwo, ale jak na ameryka?ska przysta?o spodziewa?em si? troch? wi?cej.

Decent brown ale. Better then Newcastle but not as good as Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale.
