Poured a 500-ml can into a pub ale glass.
Appearance - red-brown colour with thin off-white lace-thin head.
Smell - heavy malt aroma.
Taste - delicious cocoa, with coffee tones with heaps of malty barley. A slightly bitter finish.
Mouthfeel - smooth, low carbonation, definitely complex and enjoyable to savour.
Drinkability - one only. This isn't something you bang away at all day.
Serving type: can

Disappointing. It says Brown Ale, but it's not brown and you could have given me a Bud Light and I wouldn't have been able to tell the difference in taste.
Appearance was nice I had high hopes, poured a gorgeous deep ruby red/light brown color with a decent sized head.
Smell was disappointing. Malt and hops. Slight smell of wheat bread.
Taste was most disappointing at all. I taste literally nothing. It tastes like I am drinking soda water or beer water. Low carbonation makes it feel very thin and watery. Upon drinking one a night later I taste the skunk.
Overall this is bad. Won't be buying again won't be recommending.
