3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
ON tap at the North End Market in Hudson, Ohio on 2/16/2008. Clear dark brown, medium tan head with good durability. Caramel dominates the aroma, some fruitiness, and a mild hop spiciness as well. Medium body and carbonation, and a soft chewiness. Malt flavors dominate as expected, with just enough bittering coming on at the finish. A nice drinkable, sessionable brown ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a dark brown color with a nice amount of head. The aroma was that of toffee, nuts and a hint of coffee. The flavor was very good. Sweet but not too sweet...roasted by not too roasted...a very good brown ale. One I would definately drink again.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2008 Aroma is toasty, biscuity. Flavor is more nutty, but has a toasty malt character about it. It has a sweetness that makes it stand out, and it doesn’t come off as a shrewd alcohol sweetness either (although that could be what its from). I think its a little unique for a brown, but a little on the thin side, which ive found typical of the style. Definitely purchase again when im in the mood for a brown ale. Good job New Holland.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy SoLan. Purs a dark brown, with a smallish white head. Pretty simple aroma. Some light malty caracters and maybe some dark fruit. Not much else. The flavor had a big dose of malty sweetness and a little nuttiness. Maybe a bit too sweet, but still flavorful. Solid little brown ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
dark brown poor with small beige head and decent lacing from a the 12 oz bottle, this brown ale is a solid offering with a nice roasted, nutty flavor but just a bit to much bitterness at the end keeps this from being exceptional. still, good beer

I like the looks of the body, a clear, deep reddish brown. Too bad the tan head’s so small. Not a bad aroma, lightly roasted malt, nuts, and dark caramel. Flavor’s okay, pretty much reflecting the nose with a touch of spiciness added. Sessionable, but so are a lot of brews.
