COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship brew, "Ten Penny Ale" is available in more and more restaurants, pubs and package stores in Central Connecticut, and the momentum is growing! "Ten Penny" is a light Scottish style ale, brewed with a secret recipe developed by Brewmaster Ray Ballard. We can't give you the recipe, but we can tell you that the finest fresh barley malts have been combined with a hint of hops from the Pacific northwest to produce a unique and universally drinkable ale.

Jow (2016) - New York, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Tap at Draught 55. Pours murky reddish brown. Nose is sweet malt and red fruits. Tastes of sour berries, light cherry, metallic, barley and earthy. Odd aftertaste that is drying and artificial. Thin palate.

jredmond (5250) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Draft at pony bar HK with Brendan. Pours a deep murky brown with light off white lacing. Aroma is sweet malt and sugar. Mouthfeel really brings the asshole out in this beer - notes of metal, sour fruit (in the worst way possible), spice and sweet malt. Some cloying alcohol too, for a 5% beer. Yea.

lag91 (55) - Milton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 18, 2014
Tap: Dark amber/brown. Not much head to speak of. Flavor is unique kinda sour, sweet, with some roasty notes. Not off-putting just different

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours amber with a thin off white head. Sweet toffee malts, bready and toasty notes, light earthy hops, and some diacetyl in the finish. Not that good.

ScipioA (263) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 26, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Looks great, a light brown/orange with a big off-white head. Lots of dark suspended idkwtfs floating around. The aromas are sweet, vegetal, and a little bit roasted. Flavor follows the aroma here, but with a stronger roasted presence the addition of some faint honey. Sharp bitter aftertaste that surprises given how mild the beer is overall. The body of the beer is well balanced between thick and thin, feels a little over-carbed. I’m not an expert in the style, but this is a fairly tasty beer on its own merits.

tcane7 (1657) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Draft sat Tunxis Tavern. Pours a murky brown with thin diminishing tan head and soapy lace. Nose of butterscotch, grain, butter, caramel. Tough to drink

vodka4blood (83) - Milton, Vermont, Vermont, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Much different flavor than other Scottish ales Ive had - honey, sourness, and maybe some smoke/peat underneath, but also a strange, though not necessarily unpleasant aftertaste…. different, for sure.

tastes like pennies, 2 oz sample at Belmont park beer fest, solid beer but not my personal preference in taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. This is a pretty poor rendition of a scottish ale but in a pinch it’ll do.

Dan269605 (235) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Amber with whitish head. Malty notes coming from the aroma. Taste is bready with slight bitterness. Pretty easy drinking. One of the better Connecticut beers, not sure how much that says though.
