A complex combination of three different types of grain give a gorgeous brown ale with a slightly spicy aroma from the abundance of German hops.

Beth101 (531) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Pours flat. Dark brown with a hint of red. Has an aroma of bread and fruit and has a dark rich fruit flavour. If it had a head it would be a decent beer!

Mjp12 (1387) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2014
Pretty bland brown ale, thought with the relatively high abv, it might have a decent flavour, but this tastes like a 3.5 abv basic brown.

Watery beer with little or no taste. No head and no aroma. This is the second beer I have tasted from this company and they are both of the same poor quality. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SarkyNorthener (3976) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle. Copper red beer with residual head. Aroma of toffee, malts and a hint of spice. Taste is mild toffee, dry hops, malts and a little spice again. OK beer.

ManVsBeer (8496) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle from B&M. Copper-amber without a head. This ale has a sweet character and a smoothness in its texture, there is a high toffee aroma too.

s_hartshorne (2599) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle rhythm+booze. Light chestnut colour no head. Aroma is roasted malts and dark berries. Taste is roasted malts a bit a smokey. Medium body low carbonation. Not a bad drink like a cheap newcastle brown ale.

martinrumsam (564) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle pours clear coppery brown. Aroma is malty caramel. Sweetish hoppy taste hint of molasses and burnt wood. Smooth but watery mouthfeel. Very thin off white head. For the price it is a reasonable beer.

dynamiteninja (1808) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle. Murky muddy brown/amber. No head. Nose is malt led with some hops. Oak. Alcohol, chocolate, cherries, fruit. I’m guessing black malt and chocolate malt. Nutty. Some parma violets. Fruity. Mmm, tastes pretty good. Kind of bittersweet, Dry finish. Soft mouthfeel. Slightly oily.

leaparsons (9779) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle. Copper with a thin foam. Aromas are burnt toffee and berries with vinous notes and hints of shit. Gritty cocoa with spices. Flavours are chocolate and fudge with pepper and lemon. Nutty with hints of smoke and a light fruit bitter finish. It’s OK.

Pizd (433) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a clear brown with small off-white head. Aroma has some sweet maltiness to it, a touch grainy and grassy. Quite a smooth fruity flavour, nice malty bite. Not much going on but it’s fairly good.
