A brewhouse favourite, this beer was brewed for the first time in our tiny pilot premises in Stoke Newington, hence the name. Brown ale is making a welcome comeback and this is our take on the style. A juicy but light malt backbone gives plenty of support to the generous hops. We love drinking this one.

5.1%ABV. Brown ale. Poured out dark brown. 30ºSRM. Nose is leathery and nutty. There are sour and Mosley aromas as well. A hit of cidery sour apple. Mouthfeel is creamy. Palate has deep toasted, almost charcoal flavors. There is blackened barley bread, Nuts like roasted chestnuts, acorns with the starch body of chestnut meal. Nice browned wheat toast in the palate as well. Hops are bitter with some earthy herbaceous notes. Finish is beery and bitter. Overall, like a full-bodied of English extra special bitter which for me tend to be a little watery, but this one was exceptional.

Deep red/brownish hue. Small beige head. Aroma not very prominenit - mainly citrus fruit and nuts. Palate medium, quite high carbonation - which I do not consider very wise in this style. Taste caramel, spruce needles, lemon zest. Definitely not what I expected - rather a session hoppy beer with nice brown color than brown ale per se.

Bottle from Beermerchants. Pours unclear dark brown witha big fluffy beige head.Aroma is nutty malty with coffee notes. Taste is light sweet with only the weakest bitterness at finish, leading to a weak dry finish.

JorgeLee (1793) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2015
Bottle from Oddbins West Hampstead. Poured a rather dismal murky brown. Tasted good though, some nice toasty roasty bittersweet malts and juicy citrus crafty hop. Decent finish. Not bad.

Robe brune, reflets ambrés, très belle mousse. Nez puissant entre malt, caramel, café, fourrure et houblon. Bouche à l’attaque ronde sur le malt et le café, belle tension et finale amère sur de beaux houblons, une très belle bière équilibrée. Une bière de fin de soirée.

Wow! This is an excellent brown ale, very light, went really well with a GBK blazing sombrero. In other words, it has versatility.
