2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Dark brown in colour with a cream, medium sized beiege head with short longevity. Toasted malt aromas with a light general sugary sweetness. Tastes sweet, like a watery chocolate milkshake with almost no bitterness. Thin on the palate with a soft texture. For what it is, this is fine.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle. More black than brown in colour with a quickly settling crackly compact tan head. Musty on the nose like a room that hasn’t been open for a while, not unpleasant. Fairly thin textured and lacking in taste a little, with a smoky burnt flavour. Smooth but lacks a punch.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
[ As Manns Brown Ale ]. Clear medium to dark brown color with a average to large, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, beige head. Aroma is light moderate malty, caramel, toffee, brown sugar. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. Very much like a Danish hvidtÃ¸l.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a very deep mahogany with heaps of ruby showing through on the sides. Smallish cream coloured head. Wow nothing like I was expecting. Aromas of sweet malt, caramel, vanilla and a little sourness. Flavours are pretty much the same with lots of malt and vanilla. Slight bitter finish with some sourness. Pretty good beer considering the abv.

Delicious brown ale. Lovely subtle roasted character, with good maltiness. Small hint of bitterness, leads to a very nicely balanced, sesssion ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
31st October 2008. Clear dark brown ale. Mild malt - just a little sourish. Unsurprisngly watery palate but it’s not too bad a thing as with it’s reasonable flavour it’s quite refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 50 cl. Comes simply as "Manns Brown Ale" - apparently lost its originality... Pours a very dark brown with a creamy beige head leaving some laces. Sweet roasted malts, burned caramel and some butter in the nose. Light body, sweet roasted malts, burned caramel and nuts. No bitterness. Very close to a Danish "Hvidtøl". 160110

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours virtually flat with very little head but has a nice rich brown color. Aroma is healthy cereal, and sweet, nutty German bread. Very thin and watery palate. Tastes exactly like the packaged German sliced pumpernickel, natural and healthy with a touch of honey, and barley tea. Makes for a good health bevvie.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep brown with ruby highlights, small thick brown foam.
Biscuity aroma combined with a good dose of meaty roasted character.
Low carbonation, really good weight and body for such a low abv!
Plenty of flavour on body; biscuit, brown sugar, dark chocolate, roasted nut, plum and dried fruit linger on a mildly bitter finish.
Very tasty and approachable dark ale. My first authentic "mild"!
