In my opinion the best from Cannery although can be a little watery on tap. Directly from the brewery in a "party pig" it is a great session beer with a full mouthfeel, inviting head, and eye-catching brown colour. Puts OSB to shame.

faint nutty aroma. Pours a dark brown, practically no head. Looks like flat Coke in the glass. Roasted malts come through in the flavour. Oily palate. Sourness in the finish. Fairly smooth going down. Inoffensive, but doesn’t make you want to seek it out again.

650 ml bottle. Red brown colour with a frothy tan coloured head. Toffee, walnut, and lightly bready aroma. Toffee and nutty flavours with a lightly earthy character. Medium bodied, smooth.

Bomber: Pours a lush earthy brown with reddish tinge. Decent head but not much lace. Could have been the glass becuase it wasn’t mine. This is definitely one of those beers where the aroma trumphs the flavour. Complex layers of roasted hazelnuts, light roast coffee, milk chocolate, grapefruit, toasted oats. Somewhat light and smooth mouthfeel. Flavour profile is a bit more straightforward. Roasted malt with hoppy finish. Would love to try more from these guys. Cheers!

Brown chocolate colour with nutty-caramel taste. Somewhat hoppier than other nut brown ales I remember(at least this bottle is!). Decent beer that would be better with a little more body and better carbonation. Mine went flat pretty quick.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear deep brown with milk chocolate aroma and earthy overtones. Sweet malts with Nutella and chocolate, but not much hops. Good body but would be better with more floral hops added. Thanks to Piscator.

Fairly average brown ale, a little nutty, a bit on the thin side and a tiny bit earthy.
