Earning 91 points in 1997, our Thunder Hole Ale won first place and its second Gold Medal at the World Beer Championships in Chicago. Locally brewed Thunder Hole Ale scored higher than Pete's Wicked, Newcastle Brown, Sam Adams, as well as many other Brown Ales from Maine and around the world. Thunder Hole Ale came in first again in 2000 with a score of 92 points! This delicious full-bodied brown ale is described by judges as malty, balanced, smooth and complex. Thunder Hole Ale goes with everything!

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.

MaBeer1972 (1585) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 26, 2010
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.

Nice beer. Nothing out of the ordinary but nice and solid. Tastes like a good old fashioned beer. Malty with a hop bite, nicely balanced. Good stuff.

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.

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.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 25, 2010
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.

dmac (5090) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2010
22 oz bottle from Canals Hainesport. Pours a deep dark mahogany brown with a small to average sized head. Aroma of wet bread, d honey, stale chocolate, old caramel and crushed old flower petals. The body is thinner and bubblier then I would have liked. Flavor is bitter sweet with notes of stale chocolate, weak honey, grassy dry hops and rotting orange fruit. Meh its drinkable, actually thought it was better but with a little warming this one is dropping off.
