Erm is this meant to be a brown - its golden !!!!!! Some hoppy notes, biscuity and toasted malts with bready yeast. Slightly mouldy character ? if it has gone off/infected.

A Mes rate: Bottle at Chris O’s Pre GBBF Tasting
Amber colour with a thin off white head. Sweet and fruity with some slight grassy hop througout. Slightly infected giving it a mouldy and salty accent which does it no favours at all. Drinkable but blah.

Bottled. Golden colour, small beige head. Aroma is nectar, fruits, some sweet wood and mild notes of sourness. Flavour is medicine, fruity hops as well as mild licorice and quite much mouldy/earthyness. Probably infected, but I liked it!
