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 doesn’t 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??? We’ll 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, we’d say it’s REWIRED. Cheers!”

Kriegbaum (845) - Randers, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2012
Beer-marathon, Sdr. Borup / Randers the 2012th Unclear brown beer with an off-white head. Sweet aroma of malt, caramel and dark fruit. The taste is malt and caramel and notes of hops. Mild to moderate bitter in taste and aftertaste

Poured darker than expected, with a good dense head. Great aroma of fresh hops and sweet malty goodness and and amazing flavored of hops, bready malt base and a strange (but delicious) toffee apple hint. -Rated via BeerBuddy

500ml bottle. Pours out with far too much head; obvious carbonation issues evident. Brownish amber beneath. There’s an initial hop blast in the aroma that rises above brown sugar and fruitcake notes from the malt, and they work together well in tandem. The same can be said of the taste, in which the hops do a good job of smoothing out the sweetness. I’ve often found brown ales to be sweet and predictable, and whilst this didn’t knock me for six, it at least helped to elevate the style above those notions this time around.

reebtogi (6246) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 1, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2013 500ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a finger and a half of light beige head that settles to reveal some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted grains with hints of chocolate and citrus. Taste is a light roasted grain and citrus hop bitterness balanced nicely with a chocolate malty sweetness. A pretty well done brown ale that I recommend others to try it.

finol (3365) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2013
Draught at CBC. Malty, nutty but mainly too hoppy than I prefere a brown ale to be.

Pyrmir (5984) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2013
On tap @CBC13. Aroma of toffee, burnt sugar, citrusy and grassy hops and some caramel. Taste is toffee, grassy hops, roasted malt and coffee that finishes with a powerful bitter hop punch.

Hmm. The slight hoppiness is interesting. Always thought browns needed something. Wish it were a tad bit more thick.

AshtonMcCobb (6514) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 20, 2014
On keg at the Bow Bar. Appearance - cloudy brown with an orange chink towards the bottom of the glass. Nose - very elusive but some nuts and toffee. Taste - toffee and apples. Then tangy orange. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - good Palate but the rest didn’t really add up. It did grow on me though.
