Bradfield Brewery Farmer’s Brown Cow (4.2%)

Badly designed bottle labels really put me off.
They shouldn’t but they do.
I mean, I don’t expect everyone to have beautifully extravagant artwork but a label that looks like it’s not been worked on at all can stop me buying a beer.
And that’s silly really because I’m probably missing out on some really good beery delights.
Like this for example.
Brown Cow is a chestnut ale with a really powerful and inviting caramel smell.
It’s full of digestive biscuits with a side order of Caramac bar, and sprinkled with black peppercorns and roasted hazelnuts.
To round the beer off there’s a decent slap of hops that delivers a little lemon twist, a mouthful of grapefruit rind and a dry pithy finish.
Perhaps I need to remember that beauty can be more than skin deep.
