Just like you, but different
Not only that but Golden Brown Original Strength. There I was singing along in the beer fridge in the shop, all the words…
Everything old is new again.
In their standard 650ml bottle, a beer that is the 7% ABV, making that about 210 calories a serve size,
Brewed by Garage Project in the style that is of a Brown Ale and they are in Beer – #844 – Garage Project – Golden BrownWellington, New Zealand
Brewed to the original 24/24 recipe launched in 2011. Well rounded and satisfyingly drinkable with a balance of juicy malt character and bitterness with lifted citrus hop notes from a generous dose of Cascade and Ahtanum and a long, lingering biscuit malt finish.
Everything old is new again.
Never a frown with Golden Brown.Golden Brown, texture like sun.
A golden brown ale, brewed with mild, Maris Otter, crystal and pale chocolate malts and hopped with Chinook and Centennial in the boil for a distinctly American character.
So, what could possibly go wrong?
Lot of malt aroma in this, it’s alike a good old fashioned pub brown ale kind of aroma.
Pours a lot like a Guinness might, seems to cascade down, a orange red brown with a nice tinged head on this. Aroma is quite fruity.
It is very malty sweet and full, and also slightly more bitter in and around than you might expect. It is very interesting and enjoyable.
I’m really enjoying the nice flavours this has and the way that they all seem to compliment each other, the flavours filling out and mellowing as it warms a little, although it won’t warm much as it’s far too easy drinking, but it retains that slightly too bitter background to really lift it to excellence.
Can’t always get what you want.
Second pour really surprised me with my poor pouring technique as I got a half and half affair that took a while to settle. Gave me time to reflect and belt out a bit of “Sympathy for the Devil” The advantage of being home alone for an hour.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 of its things from the thing. I liked it, it has character, a tonne of malt, fullness in the body, lovely hints of this and that flavour but it’s got a bitter edge to it, and the beer itself looks cloudy murky, not as inviting as you might think.
The double dip review
Music for this: ” The Rolling Stones ” and ” Grrrr!” which can play along on Spotify
Color ranges from reddish-brown to dark brown. Lower in alcohol than porter, medium to full body flavor. Appropriate foods are apple pie, pork with brown sauce, beef vegetable soup and cheddar.
