Draught at the Twisted Hop, Christchurch. Pours cola brown with a frothy off white head. Aroma of toasted malt, fruit and nuts. The flavour is toasted malt, nuts, caramel and fruit. Medium bodied. Extremely smooth mouthfeel and low bitterness. A subtle beer with great flavour.

Pint at the brewery. Beautiful malty dark brown colour. Rich full head. A fantastic balance of dark malts and subtle hops combines to deliver a well balanced smooth but complex enough drop. This is a great beer.

I love brown ales. I love that my local brews a brown ale and I love that it had returned after a year. The flavours were complex and nutty like a brown ale should be, and it is a credit to the man who brews it (although he is of only limited use to doing the cryptic crossword).

Tasted 25/05/2007. Flagon, from the brewery, served via my infamous Scotsmanís beer engine (i.e. a weedsprayer).
Gorgeous combination of toasty and cocoa-like dark malts and fruity hops. Suave, svelte, sexy. Creamy mouthfeel and superbly fresh. I didnít take any notes, and I drunk too much after this one to remember the finer points, but I can assure you itís a cracker. Looking forward to my next trip to Christchurch already...

I was surprised by this, i was expecting a standard nutty brown ale but the lovely smokey flavour to it gives it a really different aspect, very enjoyable beer

Draft. A deep red beer with a light tan head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel as well as just a touch of butterscotch, leading to a dry bitter finish. The body is light.
