3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thunder Hole Ale pours a medium brown with a head that is between white and off-white. There is a nice mixture of caramel, chocolate, and a bit of honey in the aroma with a slight sweet taste and a very mild bitterness. This is a pretty light beer with moderate carbonation and is easy to drink. Reviewed 6/8/09

Clean brown with an off-white head. Lightly caramel, toasted aroma with a light earthy hop note. Thin body. Roasty toasty malts, caramel, light chocolate, some earthy hops. Easy drinking and it satisfies the brown ale desire. Good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours out a deep brown color with a frothy, almost nitro-like head. Lighty roasty, almost smoky aroma. Flavor is deep and malty. Roasty, a little smoke and not sweet. Flavors are well balanced by the hops. Some earthy and chocolate notes. Smooth and very drinkable, like a good brown ale should be. Slight bittering finish.

355ml bottle. Pours a nice brown leaning toward copper colour with a small eggshell head that leaves a little lace. Sweet cereal grain and a slight sugary quality on the nose. Mostly roasted malt on the palate with some of that cereal grain coming through. Dry shortish finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 22 fl. oz. bottle with no expiration date or lot code. It pours a decent looking brown with good clarity but little in the way of head. The head is about a finger thick of silky tan but it dissolves quickly. It comes with a good malty and slightly nutty aroma very typical of a brown ale but more enticing. The taste boasts a likeable nuttiness with a good dose of malts and a much thinner dose of hops. Overall, a likeable beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Brown with a thin off-white head that settles to a ring. Faint aroma but malt and nut found. The flavor had nut, toasted malt, and a slight hop undertone. Light body and a light hop aftertaste.
