On tap at the brewery. Aroma is sweet. Appearance is dark brown with a nice head. Flavor is of malt and some brown sugar. No intense hop flavors as the description would lead you to believe. Nice full palate and not overly carbonated. A very drinkable brown ale.

On-tap at the brewpub in New London, NH. One finger head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a some lace. Clear amber color. Light carbonation and light-medium bodied. Malty nose. Starts balanced, brewer has it "full of hops" but the hops are not in your face. Slight bitter finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fair American hop aroma with some underlying maltiness. Amber-brown body is topped by a decent cover of white head that recedes with some lacing. Fair malt body with some roastiness. Medium body with decent carbonation and a smooth texture. Sampled at the brewpub with MartinT, muzzlehatch and Rastacouere.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice murky brown body is topped by a whiff of beige creamy, sticky and well laced. Caramelic and nutty aroma emanates on a earthy background and is backed by aptly subdued mellow hops. Doesn’t quite hold up flavourwise even if the nose was quite light. It has a strong aftertaste with a bit too much sourness, in a nutty way somehow, slightly vegetal and woody as well. Smooth bodied though, creamy yet moderately carbonated. Good brewpub beer.

Earthy, nutty sweetness treads on the shy hop end-bitterness...Toffee uneasily participates at the onset of mild sourness...Very easy drinking for what it advertises...

(Growler) How cool is it when your neighbour brings you a growler from a trip abroad? Pours headless with a deep reddish-brown body. The beers is still somewhat chilled so the nose is a strong caramel and roasted malt aroma. The flavour is that of a fortified brown ale - very malted, oily texture with a mild bitter hop finish. Overall a very enjoyable beer.
