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!

bmeup (669) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - JAN 3, 2011
This is a very good clear dark bown ale, tight packed light brown head lasted forever. Slight burnt grain with a sweet appealing aroma. Hop and malt character is great. A little hoppier than usual BA and goes well with pork and apple pie.
