A 500ml bottle with a BB of Dec 2010, so it's a little past it's best. Described on the label as a brown ale using crystal malt and centennial hops.

Poured into a Sam Smith's pint glass. A hazy orange-amber hue with light carbonation and visible sediment (the label states that it has been filtered). Rather light for a brown ale. Produces a head of white foam that lasts for a couple of minutes. Aroma of sweet, grainy malt with plentiful notes of floral and citrus hops.

Tastes of sweet malt with a distinct aromatic hoppy bitterness. Notes of grain and citrus, with a dry bitter finish. Mouthfeel is smooth but tingly and astringent. Leaves a sweet, hoppy aftertaste.

Very nice, a great balance of sweet malt and hops flavours. The only slight query I have is that it seems a bit light for the style of brown ale - perhaps more roasted malt could be used? In any case, well worth trying.
