’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.

Pours a deep, chestnut brown with a light, white head. Solid toasty nose, good finish. Could use more body, but very drinkable.

Absolutely delicious. Slightly nutty in the aroma, with maybe a hint of some kind of spice. Tastes full and robust without being overpowering with a smooth clean finish. A simple drink, but still one of the best I have ever tasted.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a copper brown color with bright clarity.
Head formation is lacking quite a bit even though it has good carbonation. Aroma is a bit weak with some roasted amlts and nuts.
Taste is pretty much lightly roasted malts, pretty simple taste.
Drinks with a medium weight but thin and watery around the edges. Finishes semi-dry and light bitterness.
Standard fair here nothing special
