COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brown and caramel malts give this classic British style brown ale a lovely mouth feel and a fragrant, toasty malt aroma.

omhper (19370) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Nut brown. Neutral aroma. Sweet and roasty with syrupy mouthfeel. There are some pleasant roasty malt and the finish holds light licorice-like hoppy bitterness, but it’s just not firm enough. The malt profile needs some work.
