COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brown ale to end all brown ales. Enjoy it, because there is no longer any reason to drink another. You’ve reached the pinnacle. A healthy blend of traditional British malts give this popular style a semi-sweet, biscuity, slightly roasted flavor. Oats thicken the mouthfeel, and a handful of specialty malts add complex chocolate, toffee, and caramel notes. The hops are mostly traditional, earthy British hops, but we cocked it up a bit with some Cascade late in the boil just to show those snooty Brits that we don’t approve of that Constitutional Monarchy crap.

Tap. Pours brown body off white lace top. Aroma malty roasted toasted and plain. Taste is medium bitter sour bitter. Palate is medium and never full bodied even if the texture is sticky and the carbonation average. I took against this as I read the commercial description which is relentlessly hyperbolic and finally xenophobic. Brits do not unanimously favour monarchy, in fact Americans seem more interested than most intelligent Brits. But objectively it's a decent brown ale.

16oz can from Against the Grain. Pour is brown with notes of chocolate malt, light coffee, and some nuts.

oobawa (1789) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2017
Surprisingly tame brown ale, more like a session IBA, offering up biscuit and slight cocoa brown ale notes up against a heavy Cascade finish. Malts are very, very mild, mainly giving a toasty undercurrent laced with caramel and bread. Hops add a piney bitterness on the back with a strong yeasty backbone. Underwhelming nose hints at biscuit and pine. Pours thin for a brown, coming out a brownish-red but giving up little head or lacing. Watery feel doesn't help. Neither does the can. Christ. Get it together, TTB.

jake65 (4003) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - AUG 27, 2017
Pint can from Total Wine Reno. Pours a deep chestnut brown with a large frothy tan head. Aromatic with roasty and toasty notes, nutty, light chocolate. Robust and inviting. Smooth transition of flavors, there is a lot of roast, some espresso, dark chocolate, and a little earthy nuttiness. Medium weight and very easy to drink. A solid effort. Glad I bought this; I almost didn�t based on the can�s artwork� probably would have been amused by this back in the South Park days, but now I find it in poor taste. The saving grace is the beer itself is quite good.

Bacchus66 (967) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 23, 2017
16oz can. Pours clear medium brown with a frothy tan head. Roasted malt, dark chocolate nose. Chocolate, burnt sugar, dark malt and hoppy flavors. Lingering bitter chocolate finish. Pretty good, aside from the, uh, unusual label work.

3.7
DuffMan (10723) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 22, 2017
Can, hilarious label! Medium brown with a beige head. Toffee, cocoa, nuts, moderate bitterness. It really is a very good brown ale.

3.5
Lowe1983 (1643) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2017
Pours a brown color with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate with a small hint of coffee. Flavor is sweet with lots of chocolate. Decent lingering flavor of three roasted malts.

3.4
Zoret (497) - Badalona, SPAIN - JUL 31, 2017
Tirador a La Cervecita. Cervesa fosca amb aromes de cafè, galeta i una mica de sucre cremat. Amb l’estona apareix una mica de sofre en boca (SO2). Cos mig-baix, carbonatació mitja. Bona.

3.1
toscanoigor (297) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - JUL 17, 2017
Da lata: Expectativa alta, mas não entregou. Acabou sendo uma brown ale regular, sem muito destaques: nem o perfil lupulado da adição de Cascade, nem muita complexidade nos sabores maltados e de chocolate. Muito padrão.
