UXO (1896) - CANADA - MAR 25, 2015
Pours clear amber brown with one finger of loose light tan head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is toffee, earthy and piney hops, slight bitter chocolate. (6/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, mildly bitter finish. (4/5)
An interesting variation on the brown ale theme, but I’m not entirely sold on the combination of the traditional brown maltiness and piney hops. (13/20) Japalo (1887) - DENMARK - JUN 9, 2012
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. Abio (1868) - BERMUDA - JUN 27, 2012
Nice beer dark reddish brown, with a very big head. Dark fruits, spiced and good grassy hops. Decent one. AgentAle (1847) - Fort Mcmurray, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 17, 2015
Aroma is smoked and roasted malts. Some clove and caramel as well. Taste is rich malts that mellow out to a well balanced hop profile that mellows out nicely. Appearance is a clear copper with a medium pearl head that retains quite well. Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2013
Pours a dark amber brown colour with a beige head. Aroma is malt, caramel, nuts, bread, citrus and hops. Taste is light sweet leading to a moderate hoppy finish. Good stuff.

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. elbernays (1731) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 20, 2014
500ml bottle at home from drinkstore. Pours dark with reddish brown hints in light. Tan foam head. Earth, ash, nut, coffee, blackberry and slightly floral on the nose. Big malt base caramel, nuts, bread, only slight bitterness but mainly sweet syrup aftertaste. A little watery and light despite but malt presence. a good bit of fizz and its refreshing for what it is. Not bad.
