Small tan head fair retention, little lace. Hazy brown color with an orange glow. Faint malt nose thats lightly sour. Body is light, sorta thin. Sourness passes over into the flavor, lightly malty, fruity and tart. Dry finish with a slight astringency. Thanks Lou.

12 oz. bottle - thanks to Darkelf for this one! Pours dark brown and slightly hazy with a thick beige head that lasts well. Aroma of toasty malts, molasses, clover and a bit of honey. Flavor is at once sweet, tart and tannic, with a hint of lemon and earthy-herby hoppiness of the East Kent Goldings and a lingering somewhat metallic aftertaste. Medium body and assertive carbonation. Not so well balanced overall.

Pours a nice dark amber out of bottle with lacing. Malt/potato aroma. Weird lemon soda prevalent in flavor and aftertaste. Bubbly feel, and finished...aw, what’s the point. A forgettable beer.

On tap at BCBC. Very good brown ale. Aroma is caramel and malt, both of which come through nicely in the flavor, along with a touch of sweetness. Good stuff!

I realize that this beer isn’t very rich but have to say it was my gateway drug into craft beer (not counting the microbrewery thing). The malty aroma appeals more to me than the taste which is slightly malty, a bit creamy with a bitter hoppy bite thrown in there. I’ve had this in a bottle, in a growler, on tap and cask conditioned which is the only way to go with this one IMHO. This beer is a hit in my area for folks who want an alternative to Bud, Coors and the other majors commonly found. Its on tap at many places as the alternative beer. For me it was a gateway towards Barley Creek’s better brews (Atlas, SuperHop) and the other stuff Pennsylvania and the world has to offer.

Clear brown with a crackling tan head. Buttery (diacetyl) nose with some bitterness. Thin, tangy, sour flavor with diacetyl.

bottle thanks to lou. sweet smelling brown ale, lots of vanilla and chocolate notes in the aroma as well. almost artificially sweet, but not too over-the-top luckily. very sweet, very thin--less attenuation and more everything else would help this beer. a session brew for sure.

on tap at bcbc, weak caramel aroma on a golden brown body with very little head. flavor had some nice caramel tones, with a bit of spices. mouthfeel was slightly creamy. nothing special about this beer, it wasnt bad, but as far as the sampler i was having went, it didnt excite me at all.

Brownish ruby pour. Nutty caramel aroma, hints of cinamon. Interesting muted hop flavor, and slightly bitter. Touch of sour bite, very light carbonation. Seems a bit thin. Thx to Lou18 for the trade!
