I look forward every year to November when this delightful brew appears at the Rebellion Brewery for the winter months. A beautiful red/brown colour and when served at the correct temperature (10-12 degrees) an immense taste that smacks your taste buds. Vladivostok (491) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2015 Toffee and caramel dominate with hops pushed to the background. Gentle and smooth and very, very easy to drink. Doesn’t blow your head off but an excellent product from a highly professional brewery. MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2005

Ruby/amber, mellow malts, well kept and very good balance. Slightly nutty and toffee. A touch of burned sugar in finish. Chewy aftertaste.

Cask conditioned - handpump - Wellington Birmingham. My first visit to this new real ale pub which has sold 256 beers already this year (Day 45). Met Daniel_Brown in there and had a good chinwag. Anyway first beer of the day and a real good one. A lovely dark brown colour with a good soapy off-white head. The aroma was malty with some pleasant berry fruits and maybe a bit of cornflakes? The taste was malty and a bit nutty with some fruitiness coming through later. A very nice beer which Dan and thought could be classed as a brown ale.

Clear red amber with a medium, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, toasted caramel, hazelnuts, light milky chocolate. Medium carbonation, fine dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is quite bitter, chocolate, light milky, citric hoppiness, softly nutty. Long, lingering malty bitter finish. Nice.
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham - with Maeib in a state of impending fatherhood! Nutty brown ale: in colour and roasted chestnut flavour. Rich, with a chocolate finish. Pretty tart, with a malt relelase to finish. Definitely a Brown Ale. Nice fullness. chriso (7586) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2006
Cask (handpump) at the Three Horseshoes, Marlow Bottom. OK, its a brown ale, but I don’t think I would have placed it in that category. A slightly sharp edge to the finish put me in mind of an old ale. Rich, dark ruby colour. There’s certainly some smoky malt and a touch of caramel in the aroma, but also some other elements that I found it difficult to pin down. Having now seen the ingredients list, with the unusual (for the UK anyway) combination of US hop varieties and dark malts, I can perhaps understand why. On the palate, its sharp, malty and bitter at the same time, with a hint of sweetness. Clean hops and touches of licorice too. Very fresh and tasty.

7th Sep 2017: half-pint from a polly-pin at a hop event in Worcestershire. Red hue to this brown coloured brew, beige head. I got the nuts, not too sure they were roasted ones though. Malts dominate this beer, so was surprised when I tasted it because of the place I tried it at. Liked it though!
