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.

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.

micronaut129 (143) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2012
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

Atom (1281) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 2, 2012
12oz bottle courtesy of beerbill, pours cola brown with a bright amber hue and a small khaki head. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, and licorice. Taste similar to aroma with some nuts and ashy roasted flavors. Something about this beer reminds me of old people.

jsmerig (1199) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2011
I get a faint smell of black licorice with this one, but it’s hard to tell because there really is not a lot of aroma. Not bad but not much flavor. The mouthfeel is rich and smooth but not a lot of flavor.

djd07 (3243) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Bottle as shown. Pours a clear amber with a small off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a fruity malt and cereal. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet malt with chocolate. Easy to drink a good brown ale from Atlantic.
