Full flavoured, fruity ale. Crystal & Chocolate malts in the mash produces a rich tast, and a reddish/brown colour, balanced by the addition or aromatic Cascade & Liberty hops.

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.

Cask gravity at the brewery shop. Aroma is sweet nutty jam fruits. Clear rich red copper colour with a lasting thin off white head. Flavour is nutty malt, dried fruit, some earthy hop bitterness. Really good condition. Another solid beer.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2004 Cask at The Rover, Gothenburg, Sweden. Dark amber with a small, solid head. Some toffee-aroma. Almost flat with a pleasant frutiness and some toffee.

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.

Served way too cold in a plastic glass during the winter Dickens Festival in Rochester. Has a sweet malt base with a good citric hop attack. The hops die down after a while allowing the malt base to reveal it’s poor quality. Reminded me more of a Vienna than an Ale, but that could be the result of the way it was served. The hops return quite pleasantly in the finish, but nothing special.

Backlog rating. Cask at JDW WIQ, London. It pours a clean copper color with minimal tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, toffee, biscuit. Taste has some more sweet malts and bread notes. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, ok

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.
