Pours a nice clear dark brown with a tan-nish head. Nose isnít as robust as I would love for it to be, but there are still tones of nuts there. Flavor is very earthy with a massive robust and consistent flavor profile. Great body to it. Never falls off at all. Feel has a full and slightly biting carbonation to it. Liquid is fairly thick and bodied. Overall a very drinkable beer. Easily sessionable and something I would hunt down on tap and definitely if it were on cask.

My bottleís label pictures a bunch of Peak drinkers at a wedding. I donít want them at my house. Ugly packaging.
The beer looks okay, a clear reddish brown with a creamy ecru head. Not much lacing. The aroma is sweet with caramel and has some nuts and a light earthy bitterness. Those hop flavors grow in the flavor, nearly supplanting the maltís dominance, and leads to a dry & bitter finish.
Personal Milestone: Brown Ale rating #100 (out of 4018)!!!!!

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2008 Like Great Divide, here is another brewer that wants to trumpet its connection to all things natural. This one even has a quote from a random drinker on the label next to a photo of a golden retriever. When will a brewer come out with a picture of a fat guy sprawled out on his sofa watching television? Anyway, this had a sweet, tangy aroma, and a little red in the coloring. Solid brown ale flavor - grains up front, giving way to yeast and malt, with some hops taking up the rear. A little thin and sour, but still a flavorful brew.

On draft at Dís Six Pax, which, by the way, isnít charging the 10% Onorato tax yet, which offsets the fact that everything is overpriced there. Anyways, this beer is a reddish brown color with a small tan head. The subtle aroma is a bit sweet and fruity. Light bodied with medium bitterness but not much malt character. Pretty bland.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Draught: Pretty much no aroma. Just a hint of malt and nuts. Poured copper with a hint of amber in color and a medium-sized off-white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Not sparkling. Flavor of butter, Ringwood, yeast, and water. Horrible taste. Light to medium body. Thin, watery texture. Average carbonation. Dry, buttery finish. Overall, ewwww.

(Bottle (best before 3/08) from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/maine/wiscasset target=blank>Treats) Boring...Pours clear light brown with five fingers or so of foamy light tan head. Aroma initially is a little malty, hints of vanilla. As head recedes I get a bad dishrag-sour smell. Mouthfeel is smooth enough I suppose, a little watery with some prickliness. Lacing is sloppy and patchy, as the large head never really settles down. Flavor is a bit of nuttiness, perhaps faint brown sugar, some milk chocolate, cocoa and vanilla as it warms. Some sourishness off-flavor hints in the background. Not too good overall.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 11, 2007
12oz bottle. Pours a murky reddish-brown. Initial crisp mouth-feel leads to a sweet, nutty, almost dry finish. Nice hop balance keeps it interesting and refreshing. Pretty good beer, worth trying.

stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2007
12 oz bottle. After being disappointed with the Peak Pale ale, this was somewhat of a pleasant surprise. Pours light brown, but the aroma is barely noticeable - faint malt smell and not really anything else. Fairly hoppy, and a distinct flavoring of peanut/walnut that hits in the middle and end. Actually pretty decent - I think the lack of an aroma contributes to the low ratings. This brewery does have some weird labels.

Another subpar Peak Organic beer. This one has barely nay aroma but could pick up caramel malt. Pour was nice. A dark amber/light brown with a generous 2 finger tan head. Taste was pretty weak. Iíd pay someone to find a nutty taste in here. Could pick up the caramel malt with a bit of a hoppy aftertaste. The problem is in between swallowing and the aftertaste the flavor disappears! Very odd. Nice carbonation, but just all around bad.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 17, 2007
Sampled with brewfiend, compliments of J.J. Taylor distributor. Pours a semi-clear caramel amber brew with a creamy light tan/off-white head that has some good retention and thick ring. Aroma of sweet caramel malt and some grassy hops. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with a gritty/grainy texture of caramel malt and a dry hop flavor. Finish is a little gritty, mild bitterness and a dry hop aftertaste. Not sure about nutty aftertaste. Maybe the marketing person has some Beer Nuts with this beer - though I do agree that Beer Nuts will go very well with this product.
