UPDATED: FEB 11, 2018 Keg at JDWs in Hackney. Cola colour, earthy hop with hints of spice and quite heavy carbonation. jinroh (2571) - ESTONIA - JAN 28, 2018
Bottle, thanks FatPhil for sharing this. Light brown pour, some light beige foam on top. Nose has toffee and light roasted malts. Burnt bread. Taste has bitterness, probably mainly from roast but something from hops as well. Toffee and nutty, burnt, burnt bread. Well drinkable hoppy brown ale this is. Nice dry roasted lingering finish.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2018 330ml bottle (Bacchanalia, Cambridge) (5:4:5:2:10=2.6)Marduk (8828) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 25, 2018
Rich biscuity malts and spicy hop aroma, hoppy, nutty. Medium palate, soft carbonation. Harsh hoppy taste, with aggressive modern hops. Malts bready but out of balance. Brown, small beige head. Another victim of kraftiness, this is a really rough brew. Just give me brown ale in my brown ale - I don't need extreme.
330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear deep brown color. Huge size, bubbly beige head, stays. Herbal hops, citrus, grassy, sweetish, buttery cookies in aroma. Nutty, biscuits, citrus, cocoa cake in taste. Nutty biscuits in aftertaste. Hoppy brown ale. martjoobolut (5468) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 25, 2018

Keg, Salt Horse. Pours muddy chocolate with lacy head. Very well carbonated, which I think kills some of the taste. Aroma of mud ashes and chocolate. I have really tried to get into brown ales but this is another example of why I can't. BeardedAvenger (1326) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2017
Keg at Waterloo Tap. Herbal aroma. Opaque cola brown..Creamy if thin white head. Light bitter with hints of sweetness. Aromatic and citrus. Some coffee and cardboard. Medium bodied. On the light side. Average carbonation. Leaves an aftertaste. Hmm... it,s alright but not sure how keen I am on the flavour mix. Kinda like licking a pleasent enough wet wipe?! jasonbenali (258) - Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2017
Pours cloudy dark brown with thich beige head and good lacing.
Aroma is carmel, raisin, plum and citrus. Taste is medium sweet with a light bitter and medium finish. Quite light but in line with the style.
Nice example of brown ale just not my favourite kind of beer. Svartvit (1005) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2017
