3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed 3/11/13. 12 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A: Pours a dark chestnut color. The head is a two finger light mocha shade; the retention featured is excellent. The creamy texture leaves behind a good conglomeration of lacing on the glass.
S: What seems to take the forefront are distinct melon notes from the hops. The usual brown ale notes reside behind it (hazelnut and chocolate, primarily). It seems like the hops feature a distinct acidic quality to them in the aroma - old bottle, perhaps?
T: Even if its an old bottle, the melon and mango qualities really give it something different than what the style is used to. After a hoppy, bright opening, some chocolate, hazelnut, and brown sugar pops up to help finish the beer. Altogether, the citrusy hops and dark malts give it kind of a ’chocolate-covered orange’ taste to it, while exhales allow toasted malt qualities to appear. Simplicity aside, it’s still a good one right now; I could see a fresh bottle being great.
M: Not that heavy. Most brown ales I’ve encountered are really sweet yet chalky; this one has a pleasant smoothness to it, and a balance between lingering malt sweetness and hop dryness. Sweetness wins out, but overall this one is quite drinkable regardless.
O: Pretty likable, I must say. I’d reckon one bottle is enough for me; move up to two and it would become pretty cloying. Still, a solid example of a style I don’t really care for.

Une belle Brown ale, style malheureusement trop rare. Belle couleur brune profonde, nez et arômes doux, maltés, présence de caramel, un peu de chocolat et de fruits secs. Ensemble doux, rond, une bonne bière de pub

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light beige creamy head soon left a blob on a dark brown thick looking body.
Malty aroma with brown sugar, plum & dark spirits.
Medium body feel on the palate quite clean & prickly on the aft.
Very malty & not too sweet, which is different to many UK Brown Ale’s, with stewed dark fruits, plum & faint hints of sugar.
