Alnwick Brewery Co. Ltd. Alnwick Brown Ale (4.7%)

Alnwick Brown AlePouring a chestnut brown, the smell of Alnwick’s Brown Ale is roasted nuts and treacle, and the nuts keep on coming as you drink.
There’s a seriously good toffee biscuit malt, it’s got marzipan and raisins at its edges and a very nice woody tobacco resinous hit towards the middle.
The hops are crispy, crunchy red leaf litter, very autumnal, very nostalgic – pretentious maybe, but these flavours always make me think of kicking my way through November leaves.
Everything is warm and sweet, but with a sharp dryness in the finish that makes this a beer I could drink and drink.
Alnwick’s Brown Ale is comforting, friendly, easy drinking goodness.
