Beer #1841 is a brown ale brewed by Epic Brewing in Auckland, New Zealand. They call this a brown ale but it’s pretty much a black IPA to me, and a terrific one at that. It’s a smoothly bitter and…

Beer #1762 is a brown ale brewed by Mornington Peninsula Brewery in Mornington, Victoria, Australia. A fairly enjoyable brown ale, mostly caramel, some bitterness. By the end of the bottle it’s become a little boring, it’s not complex enough. The…
