Nice dark with a hint of red color. Darker head, good lacing. All the flavors are subtle which I dont really dig, theres a mild nutty flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mansquito (3386) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 16, 2014
New Beer Distributors, NYC bottle ($1.75): Pours mahogany with a light beige head. Aroma is carmel, some fruit, nuts. Taste is sweet. Quite malty. Not overly sweet or heavy though. Not bad for a brown ale. Minimal bitterness, some earth.

nakedwhendrunk (2081) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Reviewed from notes. She pours a nice brown colored body with a decent sized foamy off-white head that gave some nice clingy lacing. The aroma has a nice nutty caramel maltiness with a decent balance of subdued hops. The taste is mainly sweet with some balance as it warms. On the palate, she sits about a light to medium, comes across fairly sessionable, dry and bitter aftertaste and finish. Overall, hmmm...when I lived in Maine, I would have this every Autumn as this is my go-to Autumn brown ale, maybe not a standout, but can be found anywhere in Maine. Hats off to Geary’s for a memory.

malrubius (1707) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle from Peaks Island wedding. Brown with lasting tan head and lace. Caramel nutty toasty aroma with hints of fruit. Toasted caramel chocolate nuts hints of tart fruit and cherry jam and some earthy woody hops. Nice smooth medium body and carbo. Nothing really wrong with it. Does anybody actually drink brown ales by choice?

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Pours medium brown with a small tan head. Light fruit, toast, and some coffe in the aroma. The flavor is light roast, chocolate, earthy hops, and a nice clean finish. Some dark fruit also shows. Decent

Holdwine (1077) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Great looking pour, chestnut brown with a decent head. Pretty average after that. Some nutty notes to an otherwise unspectacular malting. Slightly clogging finish.

Frank (2863) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Kind of an over sweet brown with a bit of a buttery character. Looks real nice though with a decent creamy texture.
