3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mahogany color. Decent head and lacing. Aroma is a malty sweetness with some hoppiness. Flavor is a very nice balance between sweet and hoppiness. Has a decent mouthfeel without any astringency I often find in brown ales. A very good beer that is inexpensive. This might just become one of my standard session beers.

330ml bottle. Deep brown with amber highlights. Creamy head. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, dark dried fruits and some hops. Somewhat roasty flavors, again some chocolate, dried fruits and a caramel. Medium body. It’s a good brown ale...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very dark brown with a thin sand-coloured head that disappeared fairly quick. The aroma is malty, nutty, and somewhat chocolate-like, and the hops are very ’floral’ with some rose-like hints. The taste is fairly sweet and there’s an interesting sour almost lactic tinge to the taste. Definitely liked it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown rubby high lights with a gig tan head.
A malty and hoppy aroma is present but nothing of any standout.
A very slight roasted, toffee flavor from the malts and hops present but lack any real flavor other then to adding bitterness for the malts.
Feels a bit thin and watery.
Overall, I think this beer does not achieve it’s stated goal as being a richer and hopper then the English version.
It is a ggod beer it just tastes alittle weak.
Drink well my friends

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark amber color. Nice sweet floral nose. Hoppy compared to English brown ales. This is no New Castle. Flavor a little thin and a little less malty then I expected. Just a tad more sour then I expected as well. On the back end, I picked up some classic brown ale sweetness. Not sure its hopped exactly right for my liking. Not bad though.

On tap at the Clarke Street Ale House. Brown and nutty beer. Sweet with a very smooth chocolate, smoky and woody aftertaste. Complex and nice, solid flavour through and through.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rich golden brown color, aroma of dried fruit sprinkled in just a little brown sugar and baked. Flavor remarkably more balanced than I would guess from the sweet aroma, self-possessed hop underpinnings to balance the nutty toffee flavor.
