3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich chestnut brown good head. Light toffee malt aroma. In the mouth its all about the malts. Toffee and caramel with the faintest herbal hop finish. No real wow factor but has a lot of drinkability

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hard to argue with this high score...this is easily one of my top 5 browns. Crisp, sweet malts, quite a bit of caramel, this starts out just excellent. A bit thinnish, sticky finish brings it down just a tad, but overall this is quite good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
360ml bottle. It’s all foam in the intial pour but it settles quickly to become a muddy and murky dark brown colour. Aroma is roasted malt and barley that smells like milo. Initial strong malt flavour thta gives way to a mild bitterness and an easy to drink mellow flavour.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark brown, modest offwhite head, brilliant clarity. Nose is nuts, roast, chocolate, caramel. Flavor is pecans and almonds, slight caramel and toffee, medium hop bitterness with light grassy flavor, finishes sweet. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A rather unique brown ale with surprising depth and complexity, definitely makes me eager to try more of Baird’s offerings.

Souped up brown but lots of fun. Has a good lick of aniseed and fruit cake running right through the palate. Almost sweet and not really traditional. But sometimes brown ale needs a lift like this. Tangy minerals to finish.
