3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, typical Bridgeport bottle bur label is different.
Very handsome looking ale brown, clear with amber tones, large tan head, its tight and thick.
Aroma is quite shallow, malty and with a touch of creamy oats.
Nice semi-bitter malts at first then a touch of hops balances the account at the end, slight coffee accents, and a bit of treacle .
Thin on the palate but quite OK for traditional brown ale.
Overall an easy drinking beer, but nothing to get excited about.

Tap at Bridgeport Brewpub... redish brown color with a small head. Flavors of chocolate, caramel, malt with a balance of hops. Very smooth and easy to drink. I think this beer will be a big hit at the pub.

First new bridgeport brew iíve seen in a long time and "oh boy" i said sarcasticly (i really donít like brown ales that much). But.. its bridgeport, iíll give em a chance, and glad I did, this is acuatlly a nice brown ale. Very creamy palate, so smooth I was impressed. This beer never gave the watery palate that most browns seem to. Nice caramelization in the flavor will a balanced finish. A bit of dry cocoa flavor shows as it warms. Pours dark copper with a soft white head that leaves decent lacing. Overall a well made beer that I might actually pick up a six pack, I donít say that about many brown ales.
