It was a long time ago and I only had one. I remember it was dark brown, real sweet, on tap, and served warm. I guess this was the stuff:
"Brown ales tend to be lightly hopped, and fairly mildly flavoured, often with a nutty taste. In the south of England they are dark brown, around 3-3.5% alcohol and quite sweet; in the north they are red-brown, 4.5-5% and drier. English brown ales first appeared in the early 1900s, with Manns Brown Ale and Newcastle Brown Ale as the best-known examples."
I don't write Universal Law. I just live by it.
