      Dark bright red. Huge dense head. Big spicy hop aroma, with some toasty malt and just a hint of DMS. Medium body, moderately fizzy. Richly malty with lots of spicy hops. More malty-sweet than hop-bitter. It's been a long time, but it's still the Best Brown Around.

      Nice dark brown, great head. Chocolatey-malty aroma...Cascades? Thick and smooth. Lots of malt sweetness, but not cloying at all. Mildly bitter finish. Defines the style...beats Newcastle hands-down.
