2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled: Certainly not the best brown ale I had. Red/brown coloured. Light brown head. Metallic and vague aroma. Flavour is significant better than the aroma, but it dosn’t say much. Light malt and hops and some roastyness. Is light bitter and dry in the end.

Bottled. Dark brown. Light bodied. Licorice aroma. Clean mouthfeel, some coffee and a lot of fizz. Metallic finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
A dark red beer with a light brown disappearing head. The aroma is sweet and slightly smoked. The flavor starts on a thin note but then comes a good malt flavor of roasted malt - though a little flat. The carbondioxide prickles the tongue, it ends on a slight sweet and bitter note. This beer has no body. All in all it is a weird beer - it has some good traits but also some bad ones.

Well, you can't claim false advertising. There is a very subtle nose of chocolate malt fully supported by the taste. Strong and bold, the low ABV is more than compensated by the power of the malt. I have only one comment on the description, what is gravity brewing?

Lovely beer to come home to. Dark chocolate malt, with sweetness and finish. Brown foaming head. This beer worked for me.

Nice aroma, chocolatey, nutty but the flavour disappears the moment you taste it and doesn’t come back. Thin body leaves you feeling like your beer glass... empty.

It wasn’t bad at all, mild malty flavours of coffee and chocolate and clean tasting.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2004 glad to finally be able to update my 4 word rating from the bad old days. agreed with kaya, another kiwi mild. has the emptiness of a 3% mild in an intoxicating and redoubtable 5% package. pure brown sugar in aroma. tastewise bland toffee/toast/molasses, sweet, bland and watery as it dribbles over the finish line.

I would classify this as a mild. As eczematic says ’you could do worse,’ but you could also do a hell of a lot better.
