COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Brown Ale gives a nod to the Northern English Brown style. However, since defeating the English in 1783, it is analogistic that the American version be stronger to reflect on Englandís vanquishment. Gentlemanís Relish uses Maris Otter malt as the base, augmented with dark crystal and chocolate malts. Whole cone English hops are used throughout the boil, imparting their characteristic smooth bitterness. The beer is named after an Englishmanís favorite snack, an anchovy paste, typically eaten on toast.

Tasting notes: dark brown with a thick creamy head; chocolate-caramelly-nuttiness yields to a clean hoppy finish. It makes one almost wish that the English were still here to share a pint of this fine brew...almost.

Keg @ Bangerís. Deep reddish brown with a modest off white head. Light acidic tang on the nose that is initially off putting. Red apple skin, marzipan and toffee. Some chocolate. Taste is similar sweet cocoa and tangy baked red apple. Sort of cloying on the finish. Medium body, a touch oily.

yngwie (15190) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2014
Bottle. A creamy, dark beige head of finger-thick size leaves lacings. Light brown in color. The aroma is roasted and toasted, with bread and some dried fruits. Notes of chocolate and nuts too. A faint bitterness in the flavor, with roasted malts dominating. Chocolate notes, some nuts and dried fruits. Smooth on the palate, full-bodied and semi-dry. A faint bitterness in the finish. A pretty nice one, but a bit weak I think. 140515
