Bottle from Cork & Cask. Clear amber body with a thin off-white head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of brown sugar, treacle and dried leaves. Flavour of tea, salted caramel and nuts. Medium body with a slick mouthfeel. Light fizz. Impressive balance and complexity. I’d love to try this on cask.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear brown, nice tan head. Malty, nutty aroma. Not a lot going on flavor wise, mildly bitter finish. Texture was thin and watery. Disappointing beer, but then again, I’ve never had a brown/nut brown ale that was worked for me.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The aroma is close to perfect for this English style Brown ale. Very earthy, delicate and roasty nose. The appearance is a clear btown in color. The taste is exactly what I think of in a English beer and a Nut Brown ale. Very, roasty taste with hints of nuts and caramel. It’s got a moderate amount of thickness in body. Overall, this is a world class Brown ale from a world class brewery. My go to English Tavern beer and brown ale. Would highly recommend to anyone who likes the malty Brown ales

Bottle. Pours a brown clear beer with a nice amount of off white head on top. Aroma is cookie, slight roasty, big hint of caramel and some earthy notes. Flavor is moderately sweet, loads of roast and toasty notes, A bit thin in the mouthfeel, yet the flavor is quite full. Aftertaste is long and mildly sweet, carbonation is really soft. Quite nice.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
550ml bottle into a glass. Great aroma of toffee and raisins but didn’t get the nuts that was promised. Could easily be me. Dark reddish hue with an off white heading towards tan. Flavour was lighter than expected and middle of the road. Minimal sweetness and far less malty or nutty than expected. Plate was a bit weak and short. Expected better.
