Intriguing label & name from these (seemingly) punks are paired with positive assocciations from earlier tastings.
A brown ale is what we’re in for from these Brits, and visually striking brown transparency colour. Perfect head is poured and exitement boosted as fruity aromas of dried dates, mature plum and caramel-notes comes forth. There’s also clearly nutty aroma to this one. Yes, I do inhale!
As for the taste: It is very mild and a bit light… Not exactly watery, but little edge to it. Really nice sweet middle which lingers for a bit. Taste of (I was about to say wet autumn leaves!) sap, with that sweetnote on top. A mild and far from controversial ale, but hey- whoever said brown ales would promise anything else than that), but overall well-tasty.
Will try their beers again, when the opportunity sees the light of day.
