Draught at the Brewpub in Farmington. This is nothing special. Good to stop by if you are in town though.

A copper amber ale with a thin light mocha head. In aroma, nutty roasted malt with light fruity esters. In mouth, a nice roasted malt with light coffee, nutty herbal hops, not bad. On tap at BIA, July 30, 2012.

Glouglouburp (6075) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2011
In short: A typical creamy and nutty brown ale. Good example of an unexciting style
How: Bottle 22oz, improvised HF 1rst anniversary camping tasting
The look: Clear bronze body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is mostly toasted and nutty like I would expect from a good brown ale. Taste is creamy, hazelnuts, a bit of peanut butter, chewy soft bread crust, caramel. Basically this is a standard archetypical brown ale. Not to say it is great (it is a basic brown ale after all, not an exiting style) but there is nothing wrong with this beer and deserves a bit better than its current lousy 3.2 average, and no one dares question my opinions, I said NO ONE, your hear me? NO ONE!!!

22nd May 2010. ChrisOs ’Blue Ridge Mountains Of Virginia’ tasting! Slightly hazy dark amber beer. Light dry palate. Sweet toffee malt some of which is diacetyl. Pretty poor.

22oz bottle. Beer is perfectly clear and a beautiful deep golden brown. Carbonation is fairly low, just a tickle. Aroma is fruity/toasted grainy, perhaps slightly brackish. There’s a warm toasty flavor, somewhat earthy, that goes great with fried onions/potatoes. I really like this beer, especially with food. Yay beer!

decaturstevo (5155) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 21, 2009
Deep brown pour with hints of red. Nuts, roasted malt, earthy hops, and maple on the nose. Slightly sour, caramelly malt, and light toasted malt as well. A bit thin and watery but easily drinkable.
