Tall brown half litre bottle of top fermenting Brown Ale: found in Cambridge, England. The best before date was 29 Dec 2011, so reviewed when almost two weeks older than it should have been.

Poured into my rarely used 'Good People' badged US sleeve shaped glass. Looked a treat, lovely chestnut reddy brown body, clear and healthy: on top a huge tanned head. The head soon however retreated into a wispy covering and collar leaving no lacing at all.

The aroma was of semi-sweet malty molasses and dark treacle.

The taste was very simular to the smell but not so sweet up front, it did however become sweeter as it warmed in the mouth, very malty. Caramel flavours more than dark treacle found in the smell.

The mouthfeel was fair to middling, not watery but not full bodied either. Too many hints of sweetness to be confussed with a UK Brown and the carbonisation was heading towards lager/pilsner heights.

So: not unpleasant and a kind of hybrid brew with top fermentation and pilsner carbonisation, glad I found it. Difficult to score being such a mix of styles.
