3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown/copper colour with white head. Not a very strong aroma, a little hint of chocolate. A little maltiness and sweetness to the taste, nothing extraordinary though. A little smokey. Okay on it’s own, much better paired with a steak

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from the brewery. Hazy brown body with a thin off-white head. Lively carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of brown sugar, stewed tea, metal, nuts and maple syrup. Weak flavour of red apple, toffee and nuts. Thin body with an oily texture. Almost flat carbonation. Just ok, a bit boring.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. This is a a pretty disappointing Brown ale. It is missing any hop bitterness and the maltiness is uni dimensional.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from the brewery. Pours chestnut brown with a very thin white head which doesn’t hang around. Aromas of toffee and a hint of chocolate. Hops are quite distant, but a touch of pine comes through. The taste has more, and an earthy note. Finishes with a smooth latte bitterness. Good.
