COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mouth filling malt characters and a beautiful fruit driven complexity derived from the open fermenters, mix this with a reassuring bitterness from some aromatic hops and we reckon the result is a delightfully scrumptious ale!

Not a bad drop, very smooth and with a mild aroma. Flavours of nut and burnt toffee, go and buy it.

Imaena (1703) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle. I grabbed a bottle of this in Cairns while on a 24 hour layover. It was decent but no worth the price of a single. Malty and slightly roasted with well balanced hopping. Better than some of the other stuff i got up north.

Oakes (11798) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 9, 2014
Chestnut brown. Thin head. Light and vaguely caramelly nose. Light, sligthly fruity, toffeeish flavour. Light body. Ok brown-ish ale but the word "light" comes up way too much.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2014
Pours a very dark brown colour with a good white head. Faint aroma of caramel, light chocolate, wood and light touches of licorice. Flavour is wood, toffee and some roastyness. The roastyness sits quite long together with some pepper in the finish. A bit watery, but this one is only 4,9 % abv. Overall, I could have this one again.

vinhol (194) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2013
On tap at the brewery malty aroma dark brown in colour nice malty taste but I had some of the trail brews when they first set up the brewery and this is a disappointment as compared to some of them

flying_pig (832) - SCOTLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle at The York Tap, York, England (£5.50, 330ml):
Hoppy with a darker caramel aroma and some sweet malts and toffee. There is some sugar and a few lighter fruits lingering in the background. This one definitely seems more American brown ale than English brown ale, on the nose at least.
Dark brown to chestnut with a few red tinges throughout and a really thin foamy head on top that is tan coloured and holds fairly well.
Caramel malts and again more hops than I expected with some sugary sweetness and some orange with a hint of apricot and peach lingering in the background and touches of bitterness too.
Medium bodied & hoppy with strong carbonation and a semi-bitter feel to it. Very smooth and with touches of sweetness that all balanced out quite well.

Quite a nice beer all round with a good hop character & great balance with a very smooth mouthfeel. I found this one incredibly easy to drink and got through it in no time at all.

Rob_D_UK (640) - Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2013
Dark brown still body over thin but sticky looking brown head. Nose of dark fig and caramel. Slightly roasty flavour, walnuts are a focus, slightly sour finish.

Draught as a middy size at Macquarie Hotel, Sydney, on July 16, 2013.
Roasted, sweet, malty taste. Roasted, mineral aftertaste. Sort of fizzy high co2 mouthfeel, medium high mineral like bitterness. Clear dark brown color with red hues, light brown head. Sweet, mellow, malty, roasted scent.
