Very smooth. Great taste. Nothing to complain about here. Has a nice finish that has you wanting more. This is one of my favorites.

My first brown ale, and one that i dearly love. I have yet to try the other brown ales out there but if they are as good as this one, bring them on.

good beer, but it tastes as if there are a lot of chemical ingrediences in it.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2004 Pretty tasty. Among Canadians, this is actually considered "posh," probably because of the name. But it's a decent, average ale, a bit of nutty sweetness and great colour. Tastes "brown," although a bit cheesy at times. I had it kinda warm, I think I would've liked it colder.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2005 Tried this again in a restaurant, this time I drank out of the bottle (those restaurant glasses are nasty!). Malty, fresh aroma. Nice malt/hop balance in the flavor. A bit of alcohol noticed in the aftertaste, but nothing overpowering. Slight candy-ish feel to it, but overall good feel and finish. Decent.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
One of the few dissapointments Iíve ever
had in a British brew. Itís beautiful to look at, but the flavor is nothing special (for an Englsih brew) and the body is non-existent!
The specific gravity of this stuff must be 1.0001. Not recommended from here.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2012 Rerate- rubbery and pretty thin. Canít believe i rated this highly before. Prev 3.3 - THE beer of the NE of England. Always served too cold as per the suggestion on the label. Shame, because the chill disguises the nutty taste. And, served (almost) by the imperial pint.

iíve only had this beer on draught, and I must say, I really like it. It is a bit light, but goes real well with a meal because of that.
