Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet maty with notes of caramel combined with a light spicy note. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of roasted malt, leading to a dry bitter finish. The body is thin. Thanks fonefan and Brugmansia for sharing.

Bottled (as Meadow Brown, thanks fonefan!). Very deep brown colour, small brown head. Aroma is nuts, dark dry fruits, some caramel malts as well as some notes of mild spices. Flavour is dark dry fruits, wood, and some slight earthyness. BBE was 2009, but is still in good condition.

22nd May 2010. ChrisOs ’Blue Ridge Mountains Of Virginia’ tasting! Clear dark brown beer. Light palate - a touch watery. Tangy dark malt and a whisper of smokiness. Finishes light and crisp. Comes over as a very light porter. Not bad.

cgarvieuk (21612) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 7, 2008
Bottle at home as Medow Brown ... Deep dark brown ... very soft malts ... deep soft malts ... a little thin and watter as some milds often are ... little caramel ... bog standard milt if a bit on the thin side for my liking.
