COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beneath the cool facade of the warrior, a red-hot flame of intensity, determination and, yes, anger burns. So it is with this unpredictable Brown Ale: fleeting malty sweetness and warmth hide complexity, a barely controlled bitterness, and, naturally, a bit of an angry edge. You’ve really got yourself into a situation now. "Anger is energy. Use it, then let it go." Kampai!

330 mL bottle shared by ebone1988 for the stupid book. The pour is a mahogany brown color with a light egg shell colored ring of head and maybe a spot or two of lace. The aroma is seeet and candy forward. There is a little bit of bitter malt and a light toffee on the back end. Very light. The flavor is a little sharper. The alcohol up front is a bit of a turn off for me. There is a light fruitiness and the candy is there. The alcohol is overwhelming the other items. The mouth feel is a little light but decently carbonated with a lingering malty alcohol coming through heavily. Not too bad. 6 4 6 4 14

Brown orange robe with a thin white head. Nose on torrefied malt and some flowery hops, and a hint of yeast. Attack is foamy, body is light/medium, on hops and notes of coffee. Finish is quite sharp, hoppy and bitter. Quite balanced between malt and hops, not too complex, fresh for a brown ale, not dry and not sugary.

Bottle @ Xi’an Craft Beer Festival. Pours hazy dark amber with a modest off-white head. Malty aroma with notes of caramel, some mild fruity and hoppy notes and hints of pine. Moderate to medium sweet with pleasant mixture of mild hoppy flavours and malty ones. Finishes lightly bitter. Pleasant one, easy to drink and well integrated alcohol.
