Manns Brown Ale has been brewed in Britain since 1902, originally by Thomas Wells Thorpe who was the head brewer of Manns in London. He envisaged the opportunity to move away from IPA and brown stout and create a new beer, claimed to be "the sweetest beer in London". Brewed to the original Manns recipe, this 2.8% ABV ale is now brewed by Thomas Hardy at Burtonwood, it remains the most widely distributed brand of the original style of sweet, low gravity brown ale.

sm89walt (1945) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 18, 2010
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.

mkel07 (5146) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2010
500ml bottle. More black than brown in colour with a quickly settling crackly compact tan head. Musty on the nose like a room that hasnít 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.

Bottle 500ml.
[ 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 hvidt√łl. [20100116]
