COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Poor old misunderstood brown ale... This is perhaps the most versatile style of beer in the world, yet it is often frowned upon, but why? Is it because the word BROWN doesnt cling right, perhaps it leads the mind towards less appetizing things? Is it because the colour BROWN is less snazzy than, say golden?? Or is it because the duopoly of NZ brewing have driven the BROWN style into oblivion by claiming the style for their most unattractive products??? Well let you think about that while you sip this beer, either in the sun on the beach or in front of the barbie, with your afternoon steak and cheese pie, with your Sunday roast or just by itself because you are thirsty and deserve a treat! Chances are this is unlike any Brown Ale you have ever tasted, it is malty, hoppy and flavourful. Some might say it is Brown Ale re-defined, wed say its REWIRED. Cheers!

The aroma is light with toasted malt, soapy hops, and a slight sourness that turns earthy. The appearance is brown with a huge foamy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall I wont lie to you its a little disappointing but drinkable.

500ml bottle. Pours a deep mahogany brown with a large tan head. Good lacing and head retention throughout. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, dates, walnuts fill the senses. Taste is of dark toasted caramel malt, brown sugar, dark dried fruit, dates, with some nice walnut flavor and earthy hops. Palate is a well balanced combination of sweetness and bitterness with a slightly sticky medium body. Finishes with some sweet roasted caramel malt, a bit of brown sugar, dried fruits with some good earthy hops for balance, ending has a lingering roasty nutty walnut flavor. Overall an excellent flavorful, and tasty well balance brew. Very nice.

JorisPPattyn (9916) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2012
Huge, very fine-bubbled yellow beer, fed by very finely & lively carbonated opaque brown beer; shards of lace. Very grapey hops mixing with good roasted chocolate to make an appealing dessert aroma. Hessian sacks, dusty hopbales. Bitter-hoppy-chocolate, Mousse au Chocolat . Touch of something fruity - kiwifruit or passionfruit, lending even some fruity sweetness warming up. Slightly soapy retronasal. On the verge of overcarbonated, fizzy. Medium bodied. Very good, appetizing beer. But, playing advocated of the devil, it is A (quite good) brown-coloured ale. It is not Brown Ale, if you catch my drift...

suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Brown color. Medium-sized khaki head. Little lacing. Hoppy aroma. Some malt notes. Taste is malty with a nice hop presence. A little malt sweetness and a nice bitterness to balance it out. A little thinner than imagined, but overall decent.

500 ml bottle. Finland. Reddish brown colour with huge lasting light tan head. Sweetish fruity hoppy aroma with mild bitterness and some caramel malt. Flavour is toasted malt, caramel sweetness, fruity and grassy hops and mild bitterness. Drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Way out of date (therefore cheap!), but all the better for it. Smooth and velvety on palate, softly carbonated. I was pleasantly surprised and would definitely buy it again.

Bottle. Near black with a beige foam. Aromas are nutty with biscuit and a light smokiness. Weetabix with bready yeast and cream. Milk chocolate with oats and toffee. Flavours are sweet toffee and chocolate with earthy hops. Bready yeast with toffee and some light metal. Spicy and hoppy on the finish. Well balanced. Good.
