COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A good, clean nutbrown ale with a malty body. This is our most popular ale due to its smooth and malty flavor. We use a mixture of pale, crystal and black malts in this one, and our primary hop is Target, though we also add some Whitbread Goldings Variation as well. The Real Ale is best fresh, so fresh in fact, that it's great right out of the bright tank.

FROM NOTES: July 10, ’12 Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass. A: Light toasted aroma. A bit sour. A: Pours a clear, brown with a two-finger, off-white head that diminished somewhat quickly. The lacing was fair. T: Light sweetness and bitterness. Little flavor. The finish was about average. P: Light body with minimal carbonation, was almost flat and watery. O: I will have to try this beer again, as I suspect I got a bad bottle. What little taste there was, was not good.

12oz bottle. Amber brown body, looks filtered. Foamy, fading beige head. Pleasant caramel, light chocolate aroma. Smooth chocolate amber nut brown beer. Medium bodied, fresh and sessionable. Balanced by a nice crisp hop tone, but the finish is luscious, deep malt. Solid offering.

Boring brown is pretty boring. Light malty and sweet with very mild hoppiness. Not bad but again its unremarkable.

12oz bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a thin foamy tan head. Not much aroma. A little roasted malt and some nuttiness. Taste of roasted malt, hazelnut, and dank earthy hops.

On draft at Bunker's Wharf, Winter Harbor. Pours dark brown with substantial 2 finger creamy head and great lacing... Smells of bread and yeast. Roasted nuts and caramel notes... Not bad... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap in the brewery’s tasting room. Pours a clear brown with a thin white to beige head. Nutty malt, toast. Easy drinking, toasty, soft malt. Dries out into a soft bitterness.

BrettTaylor (481) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Poured as a taster at the brewery. Nice brown ale with a bit of caramel on the palate. Finishes smooth and if quite drinkable. A good session ale and bound to be good with brewpub-style food.

Bottle at home. Pours clear brown with a medium, frothy light tan head, medium-short retention with good lacing. Aroma is caramel, chocolate, and lightly toasted malt, earthy hops and figs. Flavor is malt dominant with light to medium hops and bitterness, a pleasant chocolate note and a dry finish. Medium-light body and medium carbonation.

Enjoyed on tap at Reel Cinema in Bar Harbor, ME while watching the new Star Trek. Appearance dark coffee brown with very thin off white head. Aroma not really of anything, maybe light toffee. Taste is smooth and easy drinking, nice English ale flavor. Overall, enjoyable brew.
