COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available filtered and pasteurised in bottles and cans.
Previously brewed by Burtonwood for Ushers (Refresh UK).
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.

[ 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 hvidtøl. [20100116]

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2010
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

madmitch76 (21801) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2010
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.

Leighton (18222) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2011
Bottle shared with Lyoli. Pours semi-clear, red-brown with a modest, light tan head. Sweet, caramel, brown sugar and cake aroma. Pretty nice flavor, a bit sweet with some syrupy, sugary bread, caramel and cheap toffee. Perhaps some prune or raisin or something. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Sugary, malty finish with more caramel, bread and some kind of fruit. Not bad. A little awkward but not bad.

harrisoni (17166) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2005
Bottle from Sainsburys. Very dark ruby. No head. Not a lot of nose, slightly acidic in mouth with some hop on end. OK beer just not a lot of flavour
