cask in nottingham. porter and stout festival. This was the first of the night, was a bit bland, it seemed a bit out of place at the festival.

renffisch (890) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2008
at the tap in the village with ethereal. i think it smells of pencil sharpenings(if that is a word) or more formally graphite, and hops (it is a beer after all!). dark cherry wood colour. And hey, i would never have guessed, it tastes of roasted nuts, still a bit metallic but not so much pencil any more. Strage pint it is but not bad.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Cask at the Brewery Tap, Wimbledon Village, 4th March 2008. Rich chestnut brown colour with a strange aroma of hops and graphite (like pencil sharpenings). Hops and malt are well balanced but there’s a metallic note. Light at the front of the mouth and then gets fuller. Ok, but didn’t wow me.

Cask@Sussex BF. Tastes quite nutty and caramelly. It is quite malty, and initally sweet, but quickly dries in the end, with a nutty dryness. Crystal malt characters are very obvious in this beer.

Cask (handpump) at the Three Horseshoes, Marlow Bottom. OK, its a brown ale, but I don’t think I would have placed it in that category. A slightly sharp edge to the finish put me in mind of an old ale. Rich, dark ruby colour. There’s certainly some smoky malt and a touch of caramel in the aroma, but also some other elements that I found it difficult to pin down. Having now seen the ingredients list, with the unusual (for the UK anyway) combination of US hop varieties and dark malts, I can perhaps understand why. On the palate, its sharp, malty and bitter at the same time, with a hint of sweetness. Clean hops and touches of licorice too. Very fresh and tasty.

DanielBrown (4370) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2005
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham - with Maeib in a state of impending fatherhood! Nutty brown ale: in colour and roasted chestnut flavour. Rich, with a chocolate finish. Pretty tart, with a malt relelase to finish. Definitely a Brown Ale. Nice fullness.

Cask conditioned - handpump - Wellington Birmingham. My first visit to this new real ale pub which has sold 256 beers already this year (Day 45). Met Daniel_Brown in there and had a good chinwag. Anyway first beer of the day and a real good one. A lovely dark brown colour with a good soapy off-white head. The aroma was malty with some pleasant berry fruits and maybe a bit of cornflakes? The taste was malty and a bit nutty with some fruitiness coming through later. A very nice beer which Dan and thought could be classed as a brown ale.
