3.9/5 rDev +2.9%
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 500 ml bottle into a dimpled mug. The label lists the abv at 5.7% and has a nice description of the beer.
Appearance: The body is dark brown, nearly black in color and when held up to light it appears to have good clarity. The head is tall thick and long lasting. This makes for some good lacing.
Smell: It’s aroma is loaded with caramel and bready maltiness.
Taste / Palate: The tongue is hit with a light heavyweight punch of caramel, toffee and sweet bready notes. It has a touch of nutty character as well. Hop bitterness is very light and really only picked up late in the finish. The feel is smooth and slightly sticky on the lips.

4.08/5 rDev +7.7%
A - Pours with a thick creamy light-brown head, which is retained for the duration of the drink
S - Floral hops over the top of a rich malt aroma
T -Mellow malt taste, with the subtle hint of the hops, very little lingering bitterness
M - Full mouth-feel, rich and mellow, almost soft.
O - This is a very pleasant beer - and the first Brown Ale I have drunk since having encountered its more popular and main-stream Brown Ales a decade or more ago, very pleasant and easy to drink. This is a great beer.

Pours a dark brown with nice creamy off white head that goes flat quickly. Aromas of caramel and smoked malts. Nice full robust soft mouthfeel. Caramel malt follows through in the mouth, with lovely long lingering aftertaste. slight bitter note that works really well Loved this.

Recently stumbled across my notes from The Festival 2012. Lets do this!
A - Poured a nice deep rich dark brown hue with a good two finger mocha creamy head that fades to leave some thick lacing and nice thin blanket.
S - Ohhh yeah, lots of nice tropical hop notes here, roasty/toasty caramel malts, faint coffee, and just a touch of nuttiness.
T - Taste is just like the nose. Very good. Sweeter caramel malts, brown sugar, gentle slightly tropical hop flavours (grapefruit, flashes of mango), lightly earthy/grassy, nice bitter finish and some lingering coffee notes.
M - Mouthfeel is very good. Lightly carbonated, really makes this super drinkable.
O - Overall, a damn solid brown ale. One of my favourite offerings from 8 Wired at the festival. Loved it.

500ml bottle, into my mom's old Hamm's 'chalice'.
This beer appears a clear dark red brick amber hue, with two fingers of bubbly, thinly foamy beige head, which leaves some forest canopy lace around the glass as it steadily recedes.
It smells of citrusy hops up front - somewhat stale orange and grapefruit pith - caramel malt, an oily nuttiness, a bit of nougaty toffee, and an earthy, musty, leafiness. The taste is mostly in line with the aroma - musty, juicy citrus, nutty, grainy caramel malt, and a further leafy earthiness.
The carbonation is a tad edgy, and certainly frothy at times, the body a decent medium weight, and actually pretty smooth, with a touch of pedestrian creaminess. It finishes off-dry, the nuttiness, reserved musty fruitiness, and mixed malt sweetness ruling the day.
I don't know that this is all that 'rewired', as the laid back hops and nutty malt aren't that revelatory, but are tasty nonetheless. And the label's assertions are indeed correct - most brown ales are quite dull.

Exceptionally well balanced brown ale, deep chestnut brown in color with a light brown foamy head that lingers when sipped just below room temperature. Sweet caramelized brown sugar malts, roasted barley, hints of nuts and dates, all tempered by a pleasant, drying, earthy hop finish. Medium bodied, not overly viscous. Quite delicious.

3.7/5 rDev -2.4%
Appearance- a sparkling but nearly opaque brown with a khaki colored head that lingers a bit and leaves a good amount of lacing.
Aroma- earthy with hints of carmel- cola, and some peanut butter
Taste- roasted like darkly toasted bread, coffee molasses a good balance with herbal tasting hops. less sweet than say a newcastle. It has a slight smokiness and nuttiness as it warms.
Mouthfeel medium to fuller bodied but not sticky. Not to dry or sweet.
Overall- Of the browns I have tasted on my beery journey I would say this one is one of the better ones. Its strikes a good balance of hops and malt. Its not too dry or sweet. It has less astringency than say a samuel smiths, its a little better balanced than an Angry boy brown.
