COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Is a robustly flavored ale made with top fermentation ale yeast. The beer is lightly hopped and black malt gives it darker color. The fruity ale-like esters blend well with the subtle hoppiness and hints of coffee/chocolate to deliver a unique beer.

Bov (9799) - Bienne, - JUL 2, 2013
courtesy of Philipp and Thomas - clear brown beer with no foam left; aroma of wort and dextrose; thin-bodied, tart and astringent; short and vanishing aftertaste of cola and herbs - terribly insignificant

Sissio (722) - Orsenigo, ITALY - DEC 22, 2014

If desperate times call for desperate measure, i.e. youíre in a shitty Sydney pub that has all the big sterile beers like VB or Tooheys New and thereís this, youíll find it at least attempts to have some sort of flavour. Itís by no means good, but a man must do what a man must do.

sm89walt (1780) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2014
Keg. Poured a dark brown with slight ruddy hues and a small, somewhat lasting, lacing light beige head atop. Nutty, malty sweet characters of mid, dark and fried fruits, roasted malts and then some pithy yeast complexities. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and finishing with a moderate intensity, modest length bitterness.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - SEP 3, 2014
Mahogony in color with an off-white head. Toasted malts, molasses, chocolate, with lightly sweet fruit. Medium bodied. Pretty solid, really. Not what I look for in a brown ale, but Iíd have a couple pints and be fine with it.

RafeAU (198) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2014
It Is better than the other Tooheys range, it at least has a little flavour. but Iíd only ever get it when itís the only option alongside Tooheys extra dry etc, I would never seek this out. not much interesting here.

pintbypint (2706) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2014
375ml brown bottle. Dark brown, clear. Thin tan head on top with minimal lacing. Nose has caramel and dark chocolate notes. Taste has chocolate malt and caramel, fruity. Plain dryish finish with low bitterness. Light bodied. Better than I was expected.

GothGargoyle (1421) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 9, 2014
Darkish brown with a minimal pale head. Aroma is caramel, chocolate, cereal, malt. Reasonably thin bodied, slighty watery on the palate, no sign of hops other than a slightly grassy aftertaste. Taste is chocolate malt, caramel, cereal. Nothing interesting but nothing offensive.

Imaena (1887) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle. This was a bit of a let down. I was expecting something with more roasting and character. Thin, lightly roasted, and rather blah.
