Brown it is. I like this one for the flavor. Low on carbonation but good overall. Rich sweet flavor.

Amber brown colour with a pillowy white head. Mostly smells of grassy hops in the nose. Toasty barley, caramel and chocolate taste. Short crisp finish but a lingering metallic note.

This is a beer not enjoyed cold. The caramel flavor picks up as it warms. Slighty yeasty flavor, small nuts, brown in color with minimal head. Nothing I will search out again.

Tan Head, grainy/malty aroma. A Tad bitter and a slightly above average flavour make this quite the novice import.

What's to be said about this? Used to be a decent beer until the mass marketing started, now it can only be compared in to Heineken in many aspects. A rather non-dememo beer with a skunky aroma. Finishes bitter and not terribly hoppy, but there are much better brown ales. Drink cold as possible for the best taste

This ale poured a nice dark red colour with a off white head. Doughy yeast notes with sugar malt and caramel to follow. This initial taste was excellent with its mild carbonation and roasted malt flavour. The palate was smooth with a lingering malt flavour and a slightly bitter finish.

Looks like cola. Pretty decent color. Very smooth. Nice malty start, and gradually gets more hoppy and bitter. Mild aftertaste, but still there. If you are looking for a good malty beer, this is a pretty good choice.
