COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full of rich complex malt flavours. Using a broad mix of chocolate and crystal malts, the Cavalier Brown delivers an initial burst of caramel sweetness, followed by a dry, crisp roasted note. The perfect mix of chocolate and toasty caramel flavours. With added complexity aromas from classic American hops add subtle citrus notes that will reveal something new in every sip.

lliams (193) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 6, 2013
Pretty impressed by this. Aroma is like Milo- sweet and malty with some spruce. Pours dark with lots of dense foam. Taste is strong, dry brown ale- bitter and firm. A great brown beer

Jado (437) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2013
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear but dark brown with some burnished highlights at the edges and a longlasting latte head. Aromas of caramel, roast nuts, raisins and a little smoke. Taste starts out quite roasted with some firm but not overwhelming coffee bitterness in the mid-palate. Fruity finish with stewed plums and light raisins. Body is perhaps a bit too light for the style, but a very nice brown ale all the same.

A slight bitter taste, pretty easy going for a brown. Quite tasty.

Rangi (508) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 12, 2013
Aroma is subtle and pleasant. Nice dark brown appearance with a lasting lace to the glass posta quickly receding head. Flavour is thin low carbonation. Over all a little to mild for me. Nicely made but not a great beer.

Pyobon (860) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 3, 2013
(Tap) Clear dark brown with ruby hints and thin tan head. Subtle malt aroma. Light body, good carbonation. Some interesting coffee smoky notes in flavour. Overall a nice brown ale.

Gramoit (347) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2012
Pours a very dark brown, plenty of chocolate and caramel taste. Quite a solid beer without wowing in any category.

Deep brown in colour, mostly chocolate flavour. Nice way to finish off their range. Nothing overly special though.

Jimthechap (1482) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 2, 2012
Colour is ruby-brown and clear with a good latte coloured head. Aromas are forthcoming and are of freshly ground coffee, cocoa and chocolate. It is cool in the mouth and has an earthy cocoa and carob flavour (and I have to say, I hate carob, but will not allow this to colour my judgment). It is strongly flavoured and definitely not your traditional brown ale. It hasn’t got the soft, unctuous nuttiness of a traditional dog. The finish is of enduring fizzy mouthfeel and that same chocolate and carob. Bugger.

maneliquor (2782) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours chestnut brown with a small, firm off white head. Nose is loaded with chocolate malts and light nutty under tones. Slightly sweet and biscuity in the taste but the chocolate shines in this. Slightly ashy on the finish. Seems to be half way between a brown and a porter. Nice beer
