3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the Roadhouse BBQ, Bangkok. Poured a hazy dark amber with a thin, broken, off-white head. The aroma is surprisingly peachy. The flavour is medium bitter with a big fruit, hop liqourice bitter palate and a little toothpaste with a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. It’s the strangest "brown ale" I’ve ever had!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a bit muddy somewhat hazy brown color. one and a half finger white foamy head that died within about a minute and leaves an absolute super amount of foamy lacing sticking to the sides.
The smell had a somewhat nutty but has a super amount of fruity aspects invading the aroma.
The taste was mildly sweet through the fruity notes, still there’s a nutty aspect that helps to define a somewhat decent mild sweet flavoring all throughout; a super quick strong dry malty yet somewhat fruity aftertaste; the finish is almost non-existent, but I do get a really dry finish for the most part.
On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium, and was prettty sessionable - mmmm...perhaps if one wants to be, however for me, I don’t see this as sessionable as perhaps some may see. Carbonation is good for the style and for me - well, ok, not bad as its not too sharp and too smooth just all around ok.
Overall, I say this is a fairly good English Brown ale that I think I could have again, nothing bad yet nothing standout-ish.
