(22 oz bottle) Wow, beautiful creamy biscuit head sits on medium dark honey brown body. Nice lacing. Aroma of caramel, malt, hops. Beautiful mellow toasted caramel flavor right from the start. No bitterness, no bite, just smooth. A bit watery but love the taste! Oooh yeah, another great brown ale from Maine. Really nice!

Medium brown pour with tan head. Toasted malt and brown sugar aroma carries through to the taste and is remarkably smooth. Nothing revolutionary but still an excellent brew.

Pours a reddish-brown with a thick brown head. No lace. Spicy and nutty aromas. Lightly sweet.
Very fizzy. Nutty and lightly sweet followed by bitter finish. Some smoky flavors as well. Nice balanced hops in the finish. Lightly bitter hoppy aftertaste and a bit nutty. Smooth. Very good brown ale.

Brew # 01546... Poured a bright red and brown color with a medium sized off white head and some light lacing on the glass. Swweet caramel malts and citrus fruits in the aroma. Taste was rather weak, roast, nuts, more caramel and some hops as well. Medium carbonation, but thats about it.

Batch number 1520. Nice ruby with creamy light brown head. Carmel malts, dark fruits, nice and malty aroma. Itís got a decent roasted and nutty flavor. Itís quite malty and has a nice full flavor. The beer has a clean crisp taste to finish.

Being that brown ale is not one opf my favorites, I have to say that thios is a fair beer. I was expecting more of a pale ale but it was a brown with ok coloration and a bit of a fizzy head. Flavor was a little "stickier" than I would have liked but a decent beer opverall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Has a brown color with a good bit of carbonation and a caramel malt smell. Taste is malted, but fizzy and finishes with a balanced bitterness. Overall not a bad brown ale, but too pricey...

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fairly carbonated, mild brown ale. It lacks the roasted characteristics and chewiness I would like to see in the style. Malt comes alive as it warms.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy dark amber w/ nice head that, unfortunately, doesnít last. Malty, somewhat nutty & chocolate nose. Medium body, perhaps a little thin. Firm nutty & malty character w/ underlying notes of chocolate & caramel.
