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 (9492) - 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

Capa (2029) - 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 Id have a couple pints and be fine with it.

It Is better than the other Tooheys range, it at least has a little flavour. but Id only ever get it when its the only option alongside Tooheys extra dry etc, I would never seek this out. not much interesting here.

pintbypint (2603) - 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 (1201) - 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 (1823) - 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.

Kita (1074) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle, 0.375l. Clear brown color with medium creamy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, toasted malt, cereals and grassy hops. Taste starts with moderate sweet nutty maltiness, follows fresh grassy and mild fruity with light bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Not bad and at least not an Aussie lager...

Orbitcube (1) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2014 does not count
Decent mass-produced ale. Unremarkable aroma, slightly grassy. Malt and light caramel taste with a metallic twinge. Not very bitter, easy drinking.

reebtogi (4183) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 18, 2013
375ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a 2 finger eggshell white head that settles slowly and reveals some nice lacing on the sides of the glass. Aroma is grassy with some hints of caramel and chocolate and roasted grains. Taste is a grassy hop and light roasted grain bitterness with a chocolate and caramel malty sweetness. Has a slightly metallic finish. Light to medium bodied with nice carbonation leaving a decent feel on the palate. A decent dark ale that is worth trying.
