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.

A bit too chocolate-y for my taste - I like my browns nutty. Not very complex, really, even considering the lower alcohol content. On tap at the Wheaty.

500ml bottle in Melbourne. A cloudy dark brown beer with a reddish hue beneath a small tan head that provides a soapy lace. Aroma is toasted sweet caramel malts with hints of mocha and perhaps cherries. Flavour is sweet crystal malts up front with a mild dry hop finish. Palate is smooth and easy drinking with lowish carbonation and slick texture. English-style brown ales are malty and pretty straightforward making for easy sessionability and this certainly fits the bill.

This beer spreads out over my tongue like a big malted chocolate pillow, with loads of nutty goodness and a slightly metallic finish. The head is gorgeous, the length good and it smells good too.

lliams (204) - 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 (773) - 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.
