Large frothy white head, spicy aroma(if there is such a description.) Moderatley carbonated and a nice traditional brown taste. It is amazing how many good beers Portland has, this is nothing spectacular, but just another addition to the cool micros from Maine.

This is a good beer, however, the finish is a little too quick for me. Within in moments it is almost like you never took a drink of it. All that aside, I really enjoy the maltiness of this brew.

This Maine microbrewer produced a beer that is compareable to Samuel Smith’s nut brown ale.

A little light for a brown ale, but not bad. It just doesn’t stack up against a Samuel Smith’s.
It did have that ’English’ flavor, if you know what I mean...that was cool.

If you like nut brown’s, this is not a bad beer. It’s not the best, but it is definitely something that should be tried once. It is a little on the weak (flavor) side, but not bad still.
