Inspired by the passion, knowledge and enthusiasm of craft beer drinkers, we set out to create a truly democratic craft beer. We entrusted all the important decisions to our fans, customers and anyone who wanted to learn more about the craft brewing process and cast their vote. We gave up complete control of every single decision which shaped the final beer that the #MashTag project produced. #MashTag is a 7.5% American Brown Ale loaded with New Zealand hops and aged on Hazelnuts and Oak chips.

Ktwse (3166) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2013
Pours pretty much black with low tan head. Aroma of chocolate, brown sugar, light smoke, roasted malt. Taste is initial sweet, almost like milk chocolate before the bitterness kicks in. Dark chocolate, coffee, and actually some vanilla. Body is medium, creamy, with soft carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (14964) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle split with JF at his gaff - the 60+ insect bites tasting, thanks to he, 09/06/13. Very dark mahogony brown with reddish hues in the light, medium tan head. Nose is dark malt, light roast, caramel, hazlenut. Taste comprises toffee fudge, nutty tones, brown sugars. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light roast in the finish. Ok drinkable brown affair but lacks depth for a 7.5% beer.

BenH (3439) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 13, 2013
Bottle. Brown with tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate, peppery and something slightly vegetal. Taste of coffee, chocolate, nuts, slightly peppery. Quite bitter. Can’t say I dig this.

spacecube (1510) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2013
330ml bottle from Brewdog. Pours deep brown with a light tan head. Caramel malt aroma with hints of toffee, hazelnut, some dried cherry and raisin in there too. The nose, paritcularly, is very aromatic of caramel, nice. Quite a thick texture to this and yes, it is a bit sweet, but is rounded off nicely with a touch of hoppy bitterness. The palate is full. Never been a massive Brown Ale fan but this is as good as any I’ve had.
