jjsint (3515) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2017
Handpull cask at the Criterion, Leicester. Mid-brown with a ruddy hue. Very thin-looking, with a small layer of beige head. Woody and chocolate notes on the nose, with some vegetal hints as well. Bittersweet taste with sweeter caramel notes appearing here and there. Very boozy in the finish. Decent enough but not a great drink.

jmgreenuk (10079) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 15, 2017
Cask at the Victoria, Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear dark copper colour with a long lasting frothy white head and some clingy lace. The aroma is malt, light citrus fruit hop. The flavour is moderate bitter light sweet with a smooth grainy earthy malt, nutty, woody floral hop bitter palate and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

ManVsBeer (10967) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2016
Keg @ Victorian Craft Beer Cafe, Halifax. Amber-brown with a small head. Hoppy-sweet, which subdues its strength somewhat and there’s a good slightly stewed fruitiness that lingers.

tombyars (1774) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JUL 17, 2016
Tasted this at the GRAF in the Briggait, Glasgow on the 24th June 2016. Cask, handpump dispense. Pours an opaque copper in colour with a thin white head. Floral hops present in the long aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts give a malt backbone with just a vague hint of digestive biscuit. Hop resins impart fresh zesty flavours of pine, lemongrass and grapefruit. Finish is bitter with dry woody notes present in the palate along with some grapefruit pith. Strength is well hidden though and it tastes more like an IPA than a Brown Ale?

rodbod (452) - Motherwell, SCOTLAND - JUN 23, 2016
Cask at the Glasgow Real Ale Festival. Brown, with a light rim of froth. Nose is malty and fruity. Taste is Rich, dry, not so malty. Palate is medium. Good. Seems quite traditional to me, despite the melding of styles

jamesie1857 (1984) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2016
On cask at 2016 Rail Ale Festival, Barrow Hill, Chesterfield - Decent clear brown body, lacing white head. Chocolate, pine, toasted, bitter malt finish. Good.

3.5
Rune (13638) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2016
Half-pint, cask, shared with Finn at Furnace Inn. Clear dark red-brown body. Patchy head, spotty lacing. Dark brown malty aromas, hints of dried fruits. Rather rich and well blended taste of chocolate malts and pine followed by a rounded malt bitter tail. Fine bodied. Tasty (Derby 18.02.2016).

Finn (8253) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2016
Fra fat på Furnace i Derby 18 Feb 16. Delt med Rune. Mørk brun. Luftig skum langs glasset. Utmerket plommearoma. Smaken er balansert mellom malt & sitrus.

Cask (gravity) @ Nottingham Robin Hood Beer Festival (2014), Nottingham Castle, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England NG1 6EL.

[ As Shiny Tomahawk ].

Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, hoppy, pine, fruity, light resin - wood. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft to flat. [20141009]

3.4
Fin (10970) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Cask at The Furnace, Derby, Saturday 17th January 2015 Interestingly they had this on keg and on cask dispense I went for the latter (cheaper) Brown in colour with a slim scummy off-white head. Malty and hoppy nose. In the mouth this is an in intriguing mix between malt and hops, very flavoursome hops with a tropical edge to them. Bitterness levels are good but so is the malty backbone, like it, but New World is still better. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4
