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!

This one taste quite similar to a stout. It has a dark pour with a large head. The aroma and the flavor are both dominated by a roasted coffee smell and taste. A slight sweetness also present.

jinroh (1437) - ESTONIA - JAN 2, 2014
Pours nice dark brown with a massive head that stays well and long. Aroma is nice but not too intensive - a bit of caramel, some soft roast. Taste has some caramel candy with some roast again - and everything is nicely hopped. Some coffee flavours with a dark milk chocolate. Aftertaste has more caramel, burnt sugar and bitter hops attacking the tongue for the finish. Long, nice and enthralling aftertaste. Based on this one and some previous experiences I can say that brown ales seem to be one of my favourite beer styles.
