UPDATED: MAR 6, 2019 Expecting a little more from something form this region. Same thing with the Bad King John. Good but not great. Lighter brown colored, on the clear side. Mouthfeel is decent and smooth. Flavor of caramel malt with some spice. Good hop finish with some Belgian-like yeast qualities. Flavor kind of growing up me towards the end of the sample, but just can't give it an 8. Has potential, but only a little above average here.

Bottle from Booths Supermarket, Media City. Deep amber with an extremely thin head. There's a deep sweetness to it hops, with a hint of chocolate in its nose. Not a classic brown ale in style, but it works well enough.

A mild earthy toffee dominates both aroma and flavor. Malty, with not much hops to temper the sweetness. Long and very nutty finish. Pours a sludgy light brown with some yeast chunks. Ugly, but not a bad beer. One dimensional though, and perhaps too sweet. HourGlass13 (1590) - North Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2018
Pours a cloudy brown with a small beige head. Aroma is caramel malt, pretty sweet smelling. Taste is caramel malt, yeast, mild dark fruit and nutty flavors. Really, pretty sweet. Palate is a medium body with mild carbonation. Finish is sweet caramel malt, with a very nutty ending. Not the best in class but overall a good flavorful brew.
