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!

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 15, 2011
[bottle at BrewDog Bar, Edinburgh] Hazy brown colour from the bottle, thin off-white head. Very tempting aromas of toffee and caramel malt, with some grassy hop mingling as well. I really love strong brown ales like this the woody, nutty flavours are just great. Finishes very smooth indeed, with a touch of chocolate. Really drinkable for 5.7%, its extremely well-balanced and very mellow. A few of these of an evening would be great this brewery is one to watch, clearly [13072011]

Bottle to tulip Sourness, light malt, earthiness. Pours a dark brown with a long lasting creamy light tan head. Some fruitiness up front, then nuttiness, a touch of bitter chocolate.

Bottle. Dark amber. Half finger foam. Faint caramel aromas. Sharp bitterness blended with some acid maybe from the malt! Dry finish. Not the Best from this excellent brewer.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 26, 2013
Pours a clear dark brown with a big frothy brown head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of citrusy and grassy hops, slight roasted malt, hint of caramel sweetness. Taste is grassy hops, roasted malts, coffee and sweet toffee on the finish with a nice dry finish and a smooth bitterness on the end. Very good hoppy brown ale and another beauty from 8 wired.
