Quick3Beers (1084) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 3, 2016
Pours a very slightly reddish brown from a bottle, off-white head leaves some lacing. Aroma is a bready toffee. Flavor is like bread dough with some caramel, rather watery, a little metallic although thats fading as I drink it. Good beer.

martpez (135) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2016
Nutty and malty with the flavors coming from the malts. Has the classic slightly rusty sam smiths taste (which is surprisingly pleasant it tastes of bronze and tradition)

chinchill (4600) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 29, 2016
From 2011 notes: When I first tried this beer about 20 years ago, I thought it was probably the best beer I had ever had. (I was probably right). Having one for the first time since joining BA, I had high hopes but some anticipation that it could be disappointing - Ive tried a lot of beers over the past 2 decades. Well, it was not at all disappointing. Perhaps not the very best brown ale Ive ever had, but excellent, upholding its reputation as a gold standard of English browns. Plenty of caramel malt in the aroma. Tastes only slight nutty at first, but a more notable nuttiness in the excellent malty finish. Perfect balance of flavors. Slightly fruity. Mouthfeel - a tad thin; otherwise excellent, with perfect carbonation. O - outstanding example of style. Refined and superbly crafted.

PowY (431) - AUSTRIA - JUN 10, 2016
550 ml bottle. Pours clear copper with a light brown head. The aroma is moderatly malty - bread and roasted malt together with some grassy hoppiness and also a little yeasty. Pleasant creamy mouthfeel with soft to lively carbonation. The flavor starts light sweet with some fruity acidity and a bitterness that becomes more pronounced towards the finish. Roasted malt with some caramel and nuts and mild coffee in the aftertaste - all aromas a little hidden. Overall not too exciting but a nice brew.
