Towey1989 (1893) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2016
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear deep amber colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of chestnuts, slight farmyard, a little caramel and subtle earthy hops. Taste of caramel, some toffee, slight chestnuts, a little spiciness, a hint of dark chocolate and subtle earthy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, dark chocolate, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. A smooth, malty bitter. Gets more nuttier and hoppier through the pint. Good attempt but not my kind of bitter.

Brown ale with pale beige, creamy head and deep, warm chestnut brown colour. Dried fruits and caramel malts, bit metallic, finishing very lightly toasted. Nice session beer, as an old-fashioned English brown ale should be.
