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!

Botella de 65 cl en el Lpulo. Octubre de 2012. Una Brown Ale sin mas. Cuerpo ligero - medio se bebe bastante bien. Abajo queda la etiqueta para el prximo da que la pruebe. """Pobre viejo brown ale incomprendido ... Este es quizs el estilo ms verstil de la cerveza en el mundo, sin embargo, a menudo es mal visto, pero por qu? Es porque la palabra MARRN no se aferra a la derecha, tal vez lleva la mente hacia cosas menos apetecibles? Es porque el color marrn es menos llamativo que, por ejemplo de oro? O es porque el duopolio de NZ cervecera han impulsado el estilo MARRN en el olvido al afirmar el estilo de sus productos menos atractivas??? Dejaremos que usted piensa acerca de eso mientras toma esta cerveza, ya sea en el sol en la playa o en la parte delantera de la Barbie, con su carne por la tarde y el pastel de queso, con el asado de los domingos o slo por s mismo, porque tienes sed y merece un regalo! Es probable que esto se diferencia de cualquier Ale Brown que he probado nunca, es a malta, lpulo y sabrosa. Algunos podran decir que es Ale Brown redefini, diramos que ha reconectado. Salud! """

Welley_Alves (261) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 7, 2013
Ótima Brown ale da Nova Zelandia, com assertivos lúpulos cítricos. Cor marrom, com media formação de espuma e aroma cítrico agradável. Na boca, notas de torrefação do malte se mesclam ao amargor proveniente do lúpulo, com bastante equilíbrio. Final seco com retrogosto amargo e agradável. Ótima breja! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BiddleBrau (1191) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2013
On tap at Iron Abbey. Murky brown thin head. Musty nose but slight band aid aroma. Distracting. Flavor also off. Not something Id go for again.

mcberko (16215) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2013
500mL bottle, pours a deep dark amber-tinged brown with a medium tan head. Aroma toasted nuts and a little roast - almost seems a bit oxidized. Flavour brings out very pleasant toasted nuts, a touch of roast and a touch of dry caramel malt. Quite dry and nutty, while remaining quite flavourful for a brown ale. Very drinkable stuff, but ultimately very boring.

Rulymel (278) - SPAIN - NOV 5, 2013
At glass, it has a great look, with its dark color and good consistent beige head. Good carbonation. Aroma has a perfect balance of malt with hints of caramel, toast, coffee and chocolate. Taste is equally intense, dominated by malt and a long, with dry hop notes finish.

Nice aroma, roasty, red, brown colour, clear, good head. Taste quite heavy, medium bitterness, full body, creamy, average carbonation, long finish. Great brown ale.
