3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at Blue Water Seafood Company. Amber-brown pour with a thin ring head of suds that leaves light lace. The nose is of malt and legumes. The flavor is similar: Malty upfront, with some legumes and almonds settling in mid-palate. It finishes with just a hint of yeast and a lingering almond skin bitter. The mouthfeel is clean and refreshing, with a good substantial body. Nice brown here, especially for a style that is not my first choice. Enjoyably delicious.

Draft at Merrimon. I am told this is not boogie down brown. Taste is a bit sweeter than what I remember of boogie, matches up everywhere else.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Aroma of sweet bready malt, floral hops, bitter hops, citrus, and caramel malt. Flavor of jam, light fruits, sweet malt. Ok, a little sweet and boring. It doesn’t really fall into a particular style (and it’s description did not name a style), but I guess amber ale fits best.
