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.

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.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2005
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.

Cask @ Akkurat, Stockholm
Ruby/amber, mellow malts, well kept and very good balance. Slightly nutty and toffee. A touch of burned sugar in finish. Chewy aftertaste.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2004
Cask conditioned at Three Horsehoes, Marlow Bottom, Bucks (Brewery Pub). Wonderful first sip, super fresh cask brilliance. Malty and fruity, slight toffee. Simple (in a good way).

RichardWilding (201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2004
Draught. A decent malty flavour, some sweetness. Perhaps toffee? Some nuttiness, and a bit of fruity hops. Nice bitter finish. Didn’t work all that well though, a bit dissapointing.
