One woman's ale journey

A beery boozy journey with delightful snacks along the way and a book in my hand.

Beer Advent Calendar - Door 12


As a Northern lass, I do love a brown ale so I was delighted to find a Manns Brown Ale behind door number 12.  I was surprised to see this labelled as the original brown ale, as I haven't heard of it.  For history buffs among you, Newcastle Brown Ale was launched in 1927.  With a surprisingly low alcohol content of only 2.8% ABV, it is in a 275ml bottle and is described as:

Manns in the Original Brown Ale, first brewed at the Mann's Whitechapel brewery in 1902.  The historic recipe produces a dark, rich, full bodied ale with a luscious flavour and hints of roasted creamy toffee.
