1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is dominated by cardboard and some mild bready malt. Pours a very clear orange/copper with a thin white head. Flavor follows what was found in the aroma, lots of cardboard, light bready malt. There’s also a noticeable sourness in the finish. Certainly not an "English Brown Ale".

BeerAdvent 2013 Day Ten. Pours amber, no head. Nose of caramel, paper. Flavour is paper with lemon tartness, caramel, got more offensive as we went through the bottle, neither of us could finish it. Drainpours get automatic 0.Xs on my rating scale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light brown, aroma is sort of herbal,and some grain. Taste is weirdly off, maybe it’s the honey, but there is a weird tartness and it’s not the good kind. Much preferred the porter.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Advent Calendar. Bleah. Nasty. Fails to live up to anything in the description. Has a sour taste up front and a thin finish. Has nothing in common with a brown ale.
