Pours a mid chestnut brown body with a slight off white head starting about 4mm and having.

Light aroma of hops barbados brown sugar and digestive biscuits

The taste is very fitting with a traditional brown ale slightly sweet with fruity hops and a nutty slightly bitter finish.

slightly lively but a good mouthfeel

as a rocker from the north the standard fare is Newcastle brown ale at clubs and gigs, now this is a slight cut above that.

Coming in a 500ml slim brown bottle, BB 09/2011, served cool a straight imperial pint glass. Note: ingredients include malted barley, wheat syrup, glucose-fructose syrup, and hops.

A: pours a light brown-ish hue, a thin beige froth retreats to a rim.
S: quite sweet, syrupy as well as caramely, with malts and corn-ish sweetness lagging behind, plus a little hint of dates and sweet brown prunes.
T: lightly sour-sweet, date-ish, smoked malty, leading towards a lightly bitter, herbal, hop-bitter and yeasty dry-ish finish.
M&D: quite fizzy but not over the top, light-bodied and quite thin on the palate, ok drinkability and all in all not a good beer IMO.
