Bottle, pretty boring version of a pretty boring style. Light roast, some nuttiness, caramel malts. Pretty blah

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium brown color with a large creamy tan head that lingered and left some lacing. The aroma was faint sour malts, moderate wood and a touch of vague fruit. The flavor was dryish, nutty and quite woody. The finish was long and woody. Medium body. Sup par.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle/12oz - Catching up on some old ratings from notes for earlier this winter. Pours a copper red amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is light of roasted malts as well as both brown and candy sugar. Slightly sweet and nutty. Flavor is also slightly sweet with plenty of caramel and nutty malts with brown sugar. Very easy drinking...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Barley House in Concord, New Hampshire USA. The pour was an amber brownish red with about a half inch of silky head. The aroma has a sweet maltiness and a bit of the yeast strain on the nose. There was a slightly brown nuttiness. The texture was smooth and comfortable on the mouth. A bitter or sharp taste.

On tap at Church Street Tavern as "Church Street Tavern Ale"
Deep Amber with minimal head. Smells bad, with some malt. Flavor is dominated by malts and is a little bitter. Not much else to say about this.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours a light copper color, with a large off white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass. The aroma is of honey, caramelized malts, nuts and some hops. The taste is sweet with flavors of honey and caramel up front. There’s a mild hops presence that gives a little balance. The after taste is slightly sweet. Smooth and crisp with medium carbonation.
