9 Beers to Christmas: 8 Wired Rewired Brown Ale

Mike LangBeer

What a treat.  The third beer in my countdown takes me back to 8 Wired in New Zealand.  

8 Wired Rewired Brown Ale

Brown ales are not my favorite style, but Rewired may make me reassess.  It poured a dark mahogany with a solid two finger head.  The first thing to surprise me was how full the mouthfeel was.  If Newcastle Brown is a comparison, there is no comparison.  Rewired was malty, nutty, with a hint of tart, and a spicy/hoppy finish.  

It was really outstanding.  If you've yet to experience New Zealand craft beer, you are missing out.  Rewired is highly recommended.
