2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Disappointing, some vague hoppy notes and toiday flavours but nothing is fully asserted and it doesn’t really work.

Quite a lot going on flavourwise - smoky, malty, caramel, liquorice and some citrus from the hops. Fairly light body and medium carbonation. Goes down easily.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lactose, cassonade et brown malt qui sont libérés de toute amertume ou sécheresse. Agréable mais manque un peu de cohérence.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 330ml from S.H Jones Banbury. Dark chestnut with cream head. I know this is a Brown Ale and therefore should be malty sweet, but this is certainly malty sweet, there is a caramelised fruitiness, sweet alcohol notes and hints of milk chocolate roastiness. Syrupy finish. Not my style really.

Bottle. Thanks Leighton. Pours deep chestnut brown with a medium, staying, creamy light beige head. Aroma has nuts and milky chocolate, mild grass and pine. Medium carbonation, fine creamy and light dry mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of nuts and chocolate, quite Nutella like, light caramel. Fine, lingering bitterness with some citrussy bitterness.
