3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear cola and walnut brown colored body with a tan head. Nose is maple malt and brown sugar, light notes of toast, and a small lactic yeast note. Crisp and wet flavor, crusty toasted grains, wet bread, some walnut flavored toasted bread... decent enough for a brown ale but nothing to see here either...

Clear reddish broewn coloring, with a toasted malt nose, flavor has a bit of nuttiness, toasted cereal malts, some light fruit and spice, but there is really not much going on here. Not something I would buy again.

I like anything from Bridgeport, this brown was no different. It had a nice clear, Brown color with a head that dissipated quickly. There was a nutty taste with a mild hoppiness. Malt dominates, but it is not too sweet and/or cloying. It is very drinkable.

Bottle, shared with mmmIPA and Parksy. This was a lightly hopped brown ale, nutty and a little fudgey in the malt department. Very enjoyable.
