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.

31st October 2008. Clear dark brown ale. Mild malt - just a little sourish. Unsurprisngly watery palate but itís not too bad a thing as with itís reasonable flavour itís 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 "HvidtÝl". 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"!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Has a great look to it, nice dark brown colour, some faint smells of hops and barley in the scent. Tastes kind of funky, perhaps this taste isnít for me - seems simple, very bready, quite watery, not what I wanted or expected. Maybe for a low-alc it could be a contender for a decent dark beer, though.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle shared with CinnamonGirl. Clear rosewood body, only a ring of brownish bubbles at the surface. Sweet smell of malts and wort. Sweet roasted malts in flavour and little else. Creamy in the mouth. Lightweight, but drinkable as breakfast ale (hotel room, Preston 03.05.2009).
