Bottle at m-cafe. Brown ruby color, firm white head. Nice aroma of fruity hop, hazelnut and brown malt. Taste of caramelised brown malt, hazelnut, passion fruit and some citrus. Very hoppy for a brown ale. Tasty beer, very nice.

330 ml. bottle @ home as “Vesterbro Brown”. Procured from Willems & Zoon. BBF 22/10/2016. Dark brown amber, faint red varnish wood hue, disappearing light brown head. Nose is sweet caramel, candy, maple syrup & delicious fruity hops, brown apple hops that remind me of Sorachi Ace. Taste is maple, cheap grainy chocolate, cooked brown apple, cacao puffs, light pine hops, light bitter plastic & faint leaves. Body is a bit grainy with cheap chocolate. The Sorachi Ace-like hops definitely elevated this one for me. Still it is a brown ale in the end, a style not really meant to truly excel. Still I did quite enjoy drinking this & I can see this truly excelling as a house beer, this does seem like a beer that I can enjoy drinking a lot off.

angel77 (1214) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 5, 2015
Botella de 33 cl de cervezalandia, tomada en el momento el 05-01-2015 en Belmonte. (r82) Con fecha de consumo pref para antes de 22-10-2016. Color marrón muy oscuro con bastante espuma beige persistente. Aromas y sabores de maltas tostadas con bastante amargos algo resinosos y secos que perduran un buen rato. Cuerpo medio con 5 vol correctos. Paso algo pastoso y con gas. No esta mal, intensos sabores y buen amargo final.

33 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy brown with an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are roasted malt, caramel, nuts, and hops - with a slightly bitter finish.

Cunningham (5154) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2014
Dark brown color with a fine tan head. Nice lacing. Bready, mild fruity and hoppy aroma. Nice body with a fine balance between sweetness and bitterness. Soft carbonation. Lovely tasty and balanced flavor. Bready, mild roasted, hoppy and mild fruity. One of the best brown ale I have tasted.

sulphursouls (42) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 4, 2014
On tap at Mikkeller Stockholm. Also assuming this is the same ale under ’Vasa Brown Ale’. It had a lovely brown murkiness, and a frothy head. Nice aroma with a mixture of hops and roasted malts, tasted slightly savoury and drank very easily.
