A pretty nice brown ale, quite bitter to the taste and with a drawn out bitter aftertaste.

Gravity @ Wandsworth Common BF 2013. The pourís reddish amber with a small head. The nose is marzipan, toast, marmalade, some toffee. Sweet red berry. A bit of funky underarm. The taste is marmalade, toast, more red berry. Some honey. Slight sprucy pacific northwest hops on the finish. Moderate bitterness. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, solid stuff. Nice.

Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Pours clear, rich brown with a creamy, off-white head. Classic brown ale nose: bit of dusty cocoa, dirt, toasted leaves. Light sweet flavor, dry and moderate roasted malts, restrained earthy bitterness, baking cocoa. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Light dry finish, some burnt leaves, toasty brown bread, dirt, dry cocoa. Nothing wrong here, though the beer isnít especially exciting.
