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

Toffee and caramel dominate with hops pushed to the background. Gentle and smooth and very, very easy to drink. Doesn’t blow your head off but an excellent product from a highly professional brewery.

maeib (8726) - 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.

thewolf (11184) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2012
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding.
Clear red amber with a medium, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, toasted caramel, hazelnuts, light milky chocolate. Medium carbonation, fine dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is quite bitter, chocolate, light milky, citric hoppiness, softly nutty. Long, lingering malty bitter finish. Nice.

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 (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 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).

Deep red, tiny head. Tea aroma. Lovely fruity ester retronasals. Full palate. Rich roasty malts. Finish has a bitterness both from hops and from roast, and also biscuity malts. Lovely fullsome bitter.

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.
