3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample at the Livery. Pours the color of black tea. Very faint aromas of honey and malt. Taste is sharp of bitter and zesty hops, a HUGE surprise and nothing I picked up in the nose. Full- to medium-body and a great finish. Nice beer!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampler at the Livery. Body is a dingy light brown with a decent head and aromas of citrus, herbal and resiny hops with a little toffee. Flavor is light and refreshing, especially for a brown ale and the hops are heavier than normal for the style, making this almost an IPA.

On tap at Sugar Maple. Pours a clear deep amber with a caramel hue and a creamy white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces thickly. Aroma has a good amount of citrus hops with backing grapefruit, bread and caramel. Flavor is surprisingly hoppy as well with grapefruit and citrus that mellow into a grain and caramel finish. Odd for a brown ale, but I don’t mind!

On tap @ the Livery. Pour brown with a tan head. Aroma of some chocolate malt, but the citrus hops win out in the aroma. Good flavor, reminded me of a hoppier Surly Furious. Well done.

Very attractive ruby/brown pour with big off-white head. Very hoppy nose...grapefruit and pine. The hops are very prominent upfront in flavor, too. Then comes the roasted caramel and sweet malts. Nicely brewed.

In short: A superior American Brown Ale. Nutty, creamy and generously hopped
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy amber with a long lasting medium beige head
In long: Nicely malted with lots of creamy caramelized nuts flavour. Aromatic floral hops. Nice sharp bitter bite in the finish. This thing is really quite hoppy. Funny that I was served a Winter Ale in May at the brewpub. Must be the climate changes, even the brewing seasons are all screwed up.
