12 oz bottle. Pours a clear light brown body under a foamy two finger beige head that left some intricate lacing. The nose is not very Brown Ale like, it almost has a Gueuze like quality. Sugary, musty, with some fruity malt. The taste is very earthy with dry husky malt and maybe a slight hint of infection. Minimal nutty flavor and a very light hoppiness. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with foaming active fizzy carbonation. Overall, this was just too thin and really had some odd flavors and aromas going on. Another organic loser.

Red-brown with big, foamy tan head / Minimal, faint malt nose / Medium, weak body, with no finish / Simple, thin but pleasant flavors of roast malt and nuts / Pedestrian.

Draft in Bar Harbor: Good but over priced. Not sure if it truly makes my top lists of brown ales. it has nice interpaly with the flavourings but it just does not finsih as well as i would have liked.

From a bottle at a beer tasting in Concord, New Hampshire. Pours a nice brown color with a reasonable tan head. Malts and fruits in the aroma. Medium mouth feel. Very enjoyable malty and nutty flavor. Maybe a hint of choclate too? A quality brew and one that I would have again.

aroma is sweet and malty. this is a brown so i give a pass. this beer looks good in the glass. nice classic brown with red hues. low carbonation it is still fairly sudsy. the beer goes down good with a touch of bitterness and sudsyness. the flavors are tangy with a malty hit. there is a touch of sweetness that is of caramel and toffee nut (canít discern the nut). heck a guys ego gotta give an extra point for smell and looks. goes down pretty smooth. damn it here i go -YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MIGHT MAKE A GOOD SESSION BEER.

Pours a hazy translucent brown/copper with nearly an inch of off-white head. Smells nutty and fruity. Tastes nutty and fruity at first, with a pleasant roasty coffee and chocolate quality emerging toward the finish. A slight astringency toward the finish too. Very drinkable - one sip definitely invites another. Medium creamy body with a decent amount of carbonation. Wow, what a good brown ale. A new favorite for the style!

Pretty average beer. Poured brown with notes of malt and caramel from the nose through the finish. Drank relatively smooth.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Draught, 7/18/07. A touch lite to be considered a brown ale in my book, almost a deep amber in color with fizzy off white foam. Aroma is straight up crystal malt, nothing else. Flavor dances the on the balanced note, with more of that aforementioned crystal malt note. Long lasting and somewhat annoying finish that just leaves your mouth feeling not so fresh. At least itís not a butter bomb.

Well, Iím pretty disappointed with this. Why canít organic beer be better? It looks great, with a medium, reddish brown body, and a full, lush, off-white head. Aroma-wise, thereís not much going on, just some mild malts and a gentle earthiness. The flavor isnít robus either. It lacks the roasty, nutty-sweetness that I expect from a decent brown ale.
