Clear brown. Aroma is malty and roaster. Light bodied with not too much flavor. Malt profile with a good amount of carmel sweetness. Not much going on. Ok.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It poured a deep copper and left a small beige head. It left just a bit of lacing. The aroma had some faint roasted nuts and light caramel malts. The taste took those smells and made it sweet yet more bitter and dry altogether in the taste part of it. The palate was dry in the finish and aftertaste. Overall, a pretty good beer that I would have again in any season.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Pours a medium brown/red with a small off white head. Aromas of slight roasted malts, caramel, rasin?, and some earthy hops. Flavor is watery and thin. Much of the aroma comprises the flavor but much more subdued. Ehhh boring and not that good, i’ll pass

’Real ale’ - that non style specific moniker tossed about by session geeks everywhere. Okay, especially England, Old and New. This one is a brown ale that’s on the lighter side. Dirty, earthy nut aroma. Medium clear brown color, looks like Dr. Pepper. Subdued malt flavor, and bitter in a nutty sort of way. Almost an ESB is it body and zestyness. About what I’d expect for Maine beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Relatively faint aroma, with earthiness, grass, and nut. Flavor is smooth and nutty. More nut, wood, and a little roast bitterness in the finish. Better than I expect given the rating.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep, chestnut brown with a light, white head. Solid toasty nose, good finish. Could use more body, but very drinkable.
