PowY (380) - AUSTRIA - JAN 20, 2017
From tap. Clear amber with a creamy beige head. Aroma of caramel malt with a distinct note of white wine. Medium watery body with a light sweetness and a light bitterness. Taste of overripe apples and pears, brown sugar, some caramel with a light hoppy bitterness.

Bijl (360) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2017
Lichtbruin, helder, crmekleurige schuimkraag. Aroma: Karamel, iets kruiden, iets mouten. Smaak is van hetzelfde. Vrij dun en waterig....weinig hoppig. Niet super.

BeerNinjaUK (401) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2017
Bought this by mistake as "Tyne and Wear" is missing from my counties list and I thought this would fit the bill. Doh! Its basically a very dull version of loads of other English ales averaged out. Sorry, cant get enthused.

Kauge (1708) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 9, 2017
Bottle from a local shop, Tallinn. BB 31.07.2017. Pretty bad stuff, not sure why I got this. The kind of stuff that makes you wanna go brush your teeth. Caramelly sweet, watery, dryish shallow hoppy finish. Note: label says it includes heat-processed wheat, glucose syrup and food colouring.

dlihcsnatas (668) - Texas, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Brown with small fast fading head and the aroma of caramel along with that funk that beers in green and clear bottles get after sitting in the light. It has been years since I had drank this and now I know why I hadnt been buying it. Lacking in flavor and thin watery light beer. Not horrible but not something I am going to run out and buy again for maybe another 5+ years.

ignorant (113) - madrid, SPAIN - DEC 7, 2016
brown, transparent and without any turbidity. White foam with beige swivel with creamy consistency. Light odor to malt, biscuits and caramel. The taste is smooth and watery, with notes of toasted cereal, caramel, slightly fruity and spicy. Balance between sweet and bitter soft with a short and dry finish. Light body pulling medium with slightly oily feeling. Low carbonation

Grumpelmies (162) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2016
Bottle. Transparent brown. Not much of a head nor aroma. Caramell, malts, Toffee, nuts, a light dose of hops and all around sweet. Makes me think Im having a lemonade. Watery. Super easy drinking. Nevermind my low rating, this certainly is not the best brown ale out there but nevertheless I really enjoy drinking this.
