Bottle from Ultra Bryn enjoyed at home
Dark copper/brown, creamy beige head. Smell of caramel, bready malts, pale malts, toffee and dusty hops. Light to moderate sweet, quite watery at first, then some malt flavors, bread and toffee. Moderate bitter finish, earthy hops. Maybe a bit boring? Still, flawless

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cheapie from Cov Chavsda. Dour generic brown bitter awash with watery Allsorts, hay and sourish Burton hints. Marginally more engaging aroma with chocolate-coated caramel and dried fruit (dates, figs); suggestions equal parts doppelbock and NE English brown ale. Slim beige head on murky copper.
