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.

Bottle. Bronze and poured with a big head that soon dissipated. Spicy with some bitterness and low carbonation.Cheap and cheerful with a silly name but still worth trying.

Red brown colour with decent lacing. Aroma is quite malty but also has a bit of ’green’ hop. Flavour is quite rich and malty but has a pleasant hop bitterness in the finish. On the downside there’s a slight metallic aftertaste.

Fin (9684) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2011 Bottle that dad picked up from Congleton area (cheers dad), consumed Dinmore, Herefordshire 27-12-09 Pours light chestnut in colour with a good clarity, there is an off-white head atop. Spicy Christmas nose which whilst fine is possibly a tad overspiced over enthusiasm with the cinammon perhaps? Spicy in mouth, but also a little sweet, tangy and fruity also. Not fantastic but the best of this Barnsley bunch that I’ve tried today A6 A4 F6 P3 Ov12 3.1 Had this again at FFTMC it was cask conditoned on handpump 11.02.11 Reddy brown in appearance with sparkling white head. Some toffee, touch warm, bit sweet and chewy, a little late hoppiness slightly better than the bottled version hence the re-rate. A6 A5 T6 P3 Ov12 3.2

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.

jmgreenuk (7837) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle at Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. The aroma is dry malt leading to a medium bitter, malty, liqourice flavour with a weak, slightly watery palate. A decent session beer.
