BEER: Murray's Angry Man Brown Ale

Murray's Angry Man Brown Ale
Doesn't make me angry at all
BEER: Murray's Angry Man Brown Ale

I'm first to admit that, compared to wine, I know nothing about beer (though that's suggesting I know something about wine of course). But I like this. I like it more than any of the other Murray's brews and it had me thinking about another great Brown Ale, Newcastle Brown. But this is stronger, richer and, well, browner. Oh and better.

Did I mention how it smells? Good. Very good. Classic rich molasses and fresh, slightly herbaceous hoppy nose. Rich, full flavoured but not heavy palate with just the right amount of caramel richness. Not too heavy, not too light, real Goldie Locks beer. Warming finish, but doesn't taste like it's 6.5% alcohol.

Wonderful beer this. Bought 2 and they emptied at speed. Admittedly I like Brown Ales (White Rabbit I'm looking at you) so this was bound to appeal on a base level, but I still can't laud this highly enough.
