Pleasant enough as a low alcohol session beer. Low OG for low alcohol also leads to pretty average mouth feel. Nutty notes as befits a brown, some malt, some hops, but really not especially interesting. There is a new stone ballast point collaboration that works much better as a session beer.

12oz bottle, from my local Kroger. Was curious what a "barn ale" was going to be when I picked this up, I had no idea. Figured maybe it was similar to a farmhouse ale. Turns out itís just a mispelling of "brown ale". Nice chocolate, toasty flavors up front. Mild spiciness. Good earthy hop. Pretty damn tasty and flavorful for the low ABV, actually. Clear red / brown color. Thin off-white / khaki head, leaving good reaches of lace. Lighter to medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter to moderate carbonation, with a mild chewiness. Very mild slick, but more dry finish. Bright and refreshing. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, light sweet. This is a great, balanced, sessionable brown ale (excuse me, barn ale). Great to enjoy with my sandwich.

Draft at Il Forno in Frederick, MD served in a pint glass. Clear ambery, dark brown color with tan head. Aroma notes of roasted malt, caramel, nuttiness, some maple and tad spices. Taste adds some faint coffee, more roast and tad more maple. Light body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy, sticky with sweet roast finish. Nice enough lighter brown ale with some maple influence.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber brown color, good one finger tan head, lots of lace strips. Aroma of malt, hay, and wood, much like a good smelling barn. Taste is malt that turns heavier as it moves through a medium carbonated swallow, adding wood, nut, and maybe a little maple syrup. The finish is notably short of hops, as one might expect from this type of brew, and the finish is short. Iíve had better Long Trail examples.

Bottled. A brown beer with a lazing yellowish head. The aroma has notes of nuts, caramel, spices, maple sirup, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel , maple sirup, and fruit, leading to a dry finish.

Too thin & watery to carry any flavor! Pours a decent brown w/ a thin tan head & spotty lacing. The aroma has some nice dark malts. The taste has some ok malty notes but they are drowned out by the thinness of this beer. Itís pretty light but evaporating taste makes this a below average beer!

Bottle from Philly craft. EHH, it was just okay for me. Notes of roasted malts, toffee and some roast. Body was a bit too thin for me, slightly watery.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, dark brown with a small tan head and no real lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, some nuts and hints of coffee. Taste is sweet, malty, some yeast, a bit nutty and a bit bitter towards the end. Overall a nice beer, enjoyable and drinkable.

12oz bottle thanks to Ed5388, thanks bro. Poured a flater body of deep dark brown under a smaller foamy light beige head. Aroma/flavor of chocolate, muffin, medium toast, light hint of coffee, milk, slight syrupyness. Body is super soft to almost flat bodied, medium mouthfeel, milky full finish. Improve the body on this and this one jumps up tremendously.

12oz bottle from Lacey Spirits. Poured a light brown color with a small foamy tan head. Aroma of light coffee, nuts, toasted malts, and hints of sweet pancake syrup. Taste mimics the nose with a little more roastiness, and more maple in the finish. Really liked this one.
