DruncanVeasey (8326) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2015
Cask at The Baron in the autumn Spoonsfest. Cherry red capped with off white. Unappetising dirty metallic and stroked dog aroma with background hints of sour berries and orange chew; lychee when warm. Better red berry, tweak of roast and Nutella on wholemeal flavour with a well roasted nut linger. Finally bitter with Jammy Dodger and floral hints. Bit flimsy and certainly not very US.

Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2014
Cask at JDW. Now my first problem with this is that it doesn’t appear brown. More of an amber, with a thin head and some lace. However, it does smell and taste like a hoppy brown ale. Classic US hop nose. Caramelly taste with some resinousness. Some well worked flavours but nothing too exciting.

downender (8928) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2014
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol 29/10/2014. Copper coloured with a slight, off-white head. Sweet malts aplenty, with a touch of roastiness and trace of orange fruit, before a gentle finish. Good.

3.1
Nilz (523) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 15, 2014
31/10/14 Cask a dark amber with minimal head. A nice hoppy Brown Ale, nutty, nice light bitter and clean finish. Nice stuff.

AshtonMcCobb (6953) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 14, 2014
On cask at the Standing Order.
Appearance - amber to chestnut. Decent head.
Nose - toffee and hazelnuts so praline but not too sweet.
Taste - more hazelnuts but this time coated in chocolate.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish.
Overall - a lot going on for the low ABV.

3.4
wheresthepath (2405) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2014
Cask at the Hope Tap, Reading. Amber-brown with a lasting white head. Chocolate and roast chestnuts up front, but these are soon overtaken by pine hoppiness. The malts are decent, not sure the pine hops really suit them though. Nevertheless it’s a decent beer; well balanced with a good rich texture. Just think citrus hops might have done it more favours.

3.3
BeerViking (5079) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2014
Cask at the Kings Tun, deep red-brown with a lasting coarse cream head and aromas of dusty caramel plus a little orange and resin. Dry and bitter, with hints of caramellised nuts and citrus, Faint underlying sourness, perhaps just a little bit past its best?

3.2
imdownthepub (15392) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Reddish brown with cream head. Whew this was quite sweet, there is a toffee, caramel background, boiled sugars with a nutty edge. Some roasty malt notes, not so much in the way of hops for me. It’s drinkable but I didn’t fancy another.
