3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. 5.2% per BridgePort website. Light aroma of chocolate and malt. Clear ruby brown color with a beige head that didnít stick. Medium mouthfeel, light chocolate, a slight rush of malt, and residual chocolate with slight hop in the finish. Very smooth, very light, probably good with certain foods. Nice, but it does not seem very substantial.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
