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.

DruncanVeasey (7634) - NUNEATON, CONF N, 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 (609) - 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.

ianwelby (748) - SCOTLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Clear brown beer with a thin white head. Malty, caramel aroma. Flavour is quite mellow in the mouth with soft caramel malt flavour and maybe a touch of fruit but there’s a nice sharp bitter hop in the aftertaste

olliejobbins (1324) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2015
330ml bottle purchased from Whole Foods. Pours a very hazy murky brown with a few bubbles for head. Aroma is extremely hoppy indeed. smells like a fresh IPA so a bit different to the usual brown ales. Taste is very hoppy too. Citrussy and floral with a slightly malty finish. Very nice and not what I expected.
