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

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!

Growler purchased from brewery and sampled same day (sampled? finished I mean...) Pours a muddy nut brown color with a thin (1/4 inch) tan head. Smells of nutty sweet malt (walnuts or chestnuts aroma if you can beleive it). Taste is much the same. Nutty sweet maltiness followed with just the right amount of hop bitterness in the finish. Mouth is crisp, a bit overcarbonated for my taste but nothing that takes away from the beer. Light sweet caramel aftertaste. Straightforward and richly decadent at the same time. Easy drinker and the best brown I’ve had in some time.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - AUG 4, 2005
(22 oz bottle) Pours a nice medium brown, with a full creamy beige head. Lacing kind of sloppy. Aroma slight coffee w/ cream. Satisfying rich mouthfeel, creamy smooth. Some coffee flavor, not overpowering. Almost stout-like. I like this - a real keeper.

Hey, we have a winner, this is my favorite beer brewed by Oak Pond. Nutty aroma, medium bodied sweet ale with some roast, caramel, hazelnut, and chocolate come through in the malts.

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!!!
