Tap at the Black Heart, Camden, 13/12/13.
Reddish amber with a thin off white covering/swirl that dissipates to edgework.
Nose is a little muted carrying fruit notes and caramel although picked up a little in depth as the beer warmed slightly.
Taste comprises Ribena Berry fruit, caramel malt, biscuit, hoppy back notes.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying closure with light fruit notes.
Ok stuff, easy drinking affair. rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2011
Amber beer with a nice lasting beige head. Hoppy aroma with toffee notes. Malty toffee flavor, brown sugar, metal notes. harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2011
355ml bottle from Utobeer. Dark brown colour with lasting beige head. Toasty malty aroma with dry and juicy malts on the nose. Wholemeal bread. With some 1930s jazz on the stereo, a weekend in front of me, this beer suited my mood. Understated, solid, easy going, hitting all the right notes. Just a chilled easy going, easy drinking malty brown ale. I do love Sierra Nevada as a brewery, love their beers and they still feel special to me. Good bready malty finish too with a touch of carbonation sting. lovely. saxo (18301) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2010
Bottle from Salling. Huge creamy head with good duration. Color is brown. Aroma and taste are rich nuts, malt, caramel and hops. mcberko (17830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 15, 2011
12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy amber brown with a medium beige head. Light aroma of toasted nuts, cereal malt, light caramel and a subtle smoky quality. Flavour is quite muted, with light toasted nuts, bitter chocolate and light caramel. Finishes with a bit of a metallic note. Not so enjoyable, but drinkable.
