Purchased the big 550 ml hummer. The one & only it says on the clear glass bottle. Guess I'm done sampling english brown ales.
Just slightly lighter brown than cola with a tan head that goes quickly in to a ring around the glass. No real smell other than some floral hops. At least there was no skunk as can be expected with a clear bottled product.
some carmel malt with a touch of sweetness as well. Bitter earthy hops in this beer also. I failed to detect any nuttiness or butteriness. Not what I expected in an ale. With the bitterness and high carbonation it tasted more like a euro Pilsner than an ale.
