A brewhouse favourite, this beer was brewed for the first time in our tiny pilot premises in Stoke Newington, hence the name. Brown ale is making a welcome comeback and this is our take on the style. A juicy but light malt backbone gives plenty of support to the generous hops. We love drinking this one.

drjoeng (1046) - SINGAPORE - OCT 9, 2016
5.1%ABV. Brown ale. Poured out dark brown. 30SRM. Nose is leathery and nutty. There are sour and Mosley aromas as well. A hit of cidery sour apple. Mouthfeel is creamy. Palate has deep toasted, almost charcoal flavors. There is blackened barley bread, Nuts like roasted chestnuts, acorns with the starch body of chestnut meal. Nice browned wheat toast in the palate as well. Hops are bitter with some earthy herbaceous notes. Finish is beery and bitter. Overall, like a full-bodied of English extra special bitter which for me tend to be a little watery, but this one was exceptional.

brewtalita (295) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 11, 2016
Deep red/brownish hue. Small beige head. Aroma not very prominenit - mainly citrus fruit and nuts. Palate medium, quite high carbonation - which I do not consider very wise in this style. Taste caramel, spruce needles, lemon zest. Definitely not what I expected - rather a session hoppy beer with nice brown color than brown ale per se.
