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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3343) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2015
Bottle from Oddbins London Bridge. Deep brown with a mild hoppy black roasty nose. Medium bodied with a zesty mouthfeel. The taste is slightly acrid black patent malts and roastedness. Alright but I was expecting more. 3.3

DSG (8575) - Tel Aviv, - AUG 10, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at troubles’s place. Thanks troubles. Cloudy dark amber to brown with a beige head. Aroma of yeast, sourish fruity infection, a bit of vegetables, nutty notes, and hoppy hints. Sourish flavor, yeasty, fruity, with sweetish malt, and an unpleasant bitterish finish. Medium-bodied. Spoiled.

tomer (2244) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 10, 2015
At a tasting, thanks, small stable off white creamy bubbly head, very cloudy light brown color, aroma of toasted dark bread with caramel and oxidised notes and some hay, flavor of caramel and hay with a strong soapy bitterness, taste is quite fowl, probably infected.

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2015
Bottle, 28/12/15. Good tenacious cappuccino collar over a deep reflective mahogany beer. Aroma of Belgian sugars and yeast, liquorice, rose and Jelly Tot grapefruit. Fine mellow soapy roast flavour equal parts gelatinous citrus, lemon zest and rose hop partnered with black toast and dark chocolate bitterness.

Towey1989 (723) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours a cloudy deep amber colour with a foamy tan head. Aroma of sweet toasty malts, nuts, some chocolate, orange peel and citrus bitterness. Taste of toasted and chocolate malts, nuts, orange peel, grapefruit, some raisin and ash. Medium bodied but a fizzy carbonation. A long roasted, fruity finish. Quite an odd one this, not what I expected. Maybe a little hoppier than the brown ales I usually go for.
