Lovely dark colour with a really creamy head. Aromas are sweet and bready: malt, golden syrup and a hint of yeast. Initial tastes are also sweet, with the bitterness kicking in then leaving a sweet aftertaste. For a brown ale this seems quite full bodied. superflyguy (439) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2012
a mixed blessing.
one of the best looking bottled suppermarket beers. great deep brown colour, lovel fluffy head.
genlte aroma of malt and toffee notes. slips down quite well, but I don’t really like the signature of Brown Ale so it’s never gonna score that well!
pleasent semi sweet bitter finish. AleManTom (195) - Chapel en le Frith, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2011
Very enjoyable ale, toffee, nutty and quite sweet. Red-ish coloured beer, decent head. Very drinkable. mike_77 (6668) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2011
Dark red-brown colour. Aroma has some woody notes. A flavour that is rich in slightly roasted, slightly bitter-sweet malts. Aftertaste is quite dry but with a little bit of fruitiness hanging around too. niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2011
Bottle from Sainsbury’s, Hexham. A real brown ale from the North East, very nutty but slightly over carbonated.

Crystal brown colour. Fizzy stuff. Toffee apple, bit of peppery spice, bit of malt. Smells a bit twigglety. Clean tasting. Not unpleasant but it gives me the impression that it’s the drinking equivalent of staring into the distance at a dead horse. tommann (3751) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium frothy head. Aroma is faint, skunky, nutty brown malt. Faint hint of caramel to start and skinny brown malt finish. Better then Newky Brown I suppose. shrubber85 (11408) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Bottle. Sweet chocolate toffee malt and hay aroma. Medium brown color with moderate head. Sweet toffee malt and moderately bitter hay hops flavor. Very nice - tasty and easy-drinking tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2010
Bottle; Morrisons. Ok. Aroma is shocking. Bad eggs; old socks, crusty pants.
Appearance is good. Tasting is very lenient to malt; caramel; brown sugar, some plum, faint toffee and black current. If it wasn’t for the aroma this would be a really good brown ale but the aroma is awful. My bottle was probably shot to sunlight. Sorry. Just not my thing. Sorry.

Bottle from Morrisons. Copper colour, medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts and nuts. Flavour of caramel malts, light nutty and a bit fruity. Slight bitter finish.
