The English get a bad rap lots of times. Lost so many wars, lost their Empire, had to be bailed out by the USA, bad food, bad teeth, etc etc. Well, this beer is currently called an ENGLISH Brown Ale, and personally I think I should write Tony Blair and have him sue these guys for libel or slander or whatever it would be. No Englishness here folks, and no nuttiness either, just a vaguely malty mess with a weird off citrusy quality that is the only (faint) interesting flavor component I got. It does look like maple syrup though. Whoop-te-do.
