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.

McNeillR (983) - SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2014
Light brown, thin head. Eggy choc, light enough malt. Flat bitter, thin and a foamy flick on the finish. Peppery crunch, tinny and chained up battery licking linger. No great.

Bottle, somewhere in Carlisle, April Not So Fools Tasting

Mr_Pink_152 (293) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2014
500ml bottle from b&m. Really awful branding on the bottle. Colour is deep brown with a small head. Aroma is nutty with a little grassy. Taste is similar with a hop finish.

Beth101 (523) - 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 (156) - 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 (1440) - Walsall (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.

wimpyjoe (2983) - 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.
