Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2012
Tap at the brewpub, NYC. Pours clear, red-brown with a fine, tan cream head. Lots of toasty chocolate and caramel in the nose. Light to medium sweet flavor with toasty caramel and mild milk chocolate. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Toasty malt finish with more caramel, fine dirt and light cocoa. Not a ton of depth, but itís very pleasant. Nice one.

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 8, 2012
On tap at 508. Pours a lightly hazed brown amber with a thin white head. Sweet nutty malt, toasted sesame. Really nice aromas. Medium bodied, sweet and almost tart, moves into a paper taste for a second and then nutty malt. Not sure if thereís an infection or not, but it seems like a nice base for a sour. Probably not intentional or to style, but since I like sour stuff, this works nicely and still tastes good. A bit more paper, zesty malt and a touch of acid. Soft funk and bitterness into the finish with some nutty malt lingering. Interesting stuff, but Iím guessing this is not typical for this beer.

ben4321 (5693) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 8/10/12

Aroma: The nose is roasty malts, with some toffee, nuts, and a little caramel
Appearance: It pours a clear light brown color with an orange hue, minimal head and lace
Flavor: Much as the nose previewed, this one has a sweet and roasty taste
Palate: It has a smooth and clean feel, a soft carbonation, a medium body, and a lasting duration
Overall Impression: I felt that this one was a nice example of the nutty and roasty type of brown ale. I enjoyed drinking it, and I thought it felt well-made. Another good one from 508.
