COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Northern English style brown ale in the tradition of Newcastle upon Tyne hence the use of the nickname for folks of that region, known as Geordie’s. A malt accented brew made with imported English pale and crystal malts with a touch of roasted barley. Medium/light in body and very lightly hopped with the English hop varietal, First Gold. Flavors of sweet caramel and toffee with a hint of roast malt in the finish.

Not bad but certainly nothing remarkable. Pours murky brown without much head or lacing, though this was the last pour of an old cask. Some roast but not much more to this. Light sour finish. Cask at Churchkey

Draft at brewpub. A light brown with mild flavors. A little sour in the nuttiness, palate is also thin. Not my choice in a brown ale.

Draft. Poured a medium-dark, but clear brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma was roasted, with a very distinct nutty character to it. Flavor was malts, roast, and brown nut. A bit unrefined, but enjoyable.
