Wellingtonís local beer and itís nothing to be ashamed of. Aptly named, it is very brown indeed.

745 ml bottle. Pours amber. Quite carbonated but not much head going on there. Aroma is of caramel then raw malt kinda reminded me of silage on the farm. Easy drinking sweet beer. Gets the taste buds going. In some respects very similar to and in some ways easier to drink than a coke. One of the better draught beers I have come across.

a little bit of sweet malt, which added a little to the flavour. otherwise more of the old fizzy water.

Bottled. An amber beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of metal, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of metal, malt, and caramel, leading to a dry metallic finish.

330ml can. Pours yellow with a brown tinge, medium white head. Smells of alcohol and yeast, doughy. Taste is a small amount of hops, fairly average.

Nectar of the Gods! There is nothing I donít love about Lion Brown. My only concern is that I canít find bottles in the Wellington stores anymore, devestated.

I grew up on this beer ( I also grew up in NZ born and raised), and the last time I consumed a large quantity was when my boss won the lottery when it first started in NZ, I even owned a t-shirt, lion brown more of a beer, I wore that t-shirt day and night...sigh... what a beer it was, the times I spent with this beer, wow what a sweet memory! can anyone mail me some over by any chance?

Dark amber colour, white head that sank away to nothing in quick time. The nose is intriguing. You look at the bumf on the label and think: mainstream beer and hops? Pull the other one, itís got bells on it. And while there isnít a lot of hoppiness there, thereís a brief note. It relies mainly on the biscuity malt. Flavourwise, sweet, malty and not designed to challenge.

Probably the best draught beer Lion have ever produced. Just ask the sappers down at the RSA. It is unfortunate that not many pubs now have it on tap, because it was a good consistent pourer. It is crisp, pleasant nose, hoppy, without that chemical metallic taste, and had a natural taste. Still one of my favourite bottled draughts.
