Brown with medium tan head. Malty but somewhat skunky aroma presumably due to clear bottle. Light body. Sweet, caramel, nutty flavor. Could have rated higher if not for poor aroma.

From tap. Aroma of malt, caramel and hints of fruits and herbs. Brown clear liquid with a fine white head. Medium-high sweetness and light-medium bitterness. Average carbonation, medium body. A very fine pub ale!

I didn’t like it. It could’ve been rather good if it were more fizzy.
As a brown ale, it’s bound to have a strong aroma and taste, but it turned out to be not as good.

Foam disappears instantly, too much caramel in flavor. Really didnt enjoy it at all.

Dark nutty brown al with plenty of caramel and little else. The mouthfeel isn’t what it used to be and th ABV isn’t what I remember. Makes a change.

500ml can poured into a shaker. Brown with a quick disappearing white head. Light aroma of nut. Can taste a slight nut flavor but a very watery beer. Nothing special

From Carrefour. In Ikea?s pint glass. Watching Sons of Anarchy 6x06. Nothing special and watery, but very drinkable and with some taste. However, too much expensive for its quality. Should cost half for me to repeat

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle poured into a Pilsner glass. The aroma is muted, nutty caramel with some interesting floral and mild leather characteristics. The beer is clear and oily with a brilliant gold brown hue and some effervescence. It’s topped by a soft foam, white head with mild retention and good lace. The taste is medium sweet and light bitter. The texture is watery with fizzy carbonation and a medium light body. The tastes are watered down caramel and spice and some butter. The finish is floral with light pine resin and a hint of metallic character. The aftertaste is dry and resinous with herbal notes and chalk.

Aroma is bulky and slightly hoppy. Brings me to the time I started drinking beer. Taste is lightly sweet with crisp maltiness. Great all around ale.
