One of the most popular beers we brew; this is our version of a traditional brown ale. A truly tasty beer, Farmer Brown is low in bitterness with a smooth and malty finish. Like its namesake, it’s outstanding in it’s field!

Ugh! It smelled like vinegar... it tasted like vinegar but with a very very watery mouthfeel. Still better than any bud product tho.

22 oz. bottle. I’ll give them credit, its not a typical brown ale. Has some positive notes and negative. Pours an opaque dark brown with a thin off-white head that was chased away in about 30 seconds. Aroma of coffee and bittersweet chocolate a definite plus. Sweet, nutty flavor is offset by a weird taste like wet cardboard. Thin, watery mouthfeel. Glad I shared this bottle with my wife, I don’t think I would have finished 22 oz. of this beer.

Reddish brown ale with a thin white head. Light sweet malt aroma, and sweetish malt in mouth, with nutty notes. A bit cloying for a brown, and light bodied. On tap at brewery , Feb. 10, 2006.

Bottle, from Ryan & Casey’s. Ok nose. Sweet. Little yeast at first, but that disappeared quick. Nutty, caramel, Milk chocolate. Tad hazy reddish brown color. Small head, minor lacing. Sweet malty flavor. Like aroma, Nutty chocolate. Medium body, creamy lite mouthfeel, Sweet malty finish. easy to drink brown. Seems to hit al the right marks for a brown, maybe I’m not a brown ale person

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 Update, Dec 2012: My fave PP beer. Just the slightest hint of nuttiness, minimal bitterness, minimal sweetness, just a woodsy presence. Malty. Original from 2005: Not too nutty, nor sourish, as many browns can be. Earthy and delightful with just a hint of brown sugar and smoke, this is quaffable in the extreme. Nice creamy ring head lasts and really adds to the palate. Shared with my father in law in swelteringheat in Hatfield, MA.

Dark brown beer with a head the completely dissapates. Somewhat smokey aroma. Roasted characteristics that remind me of a muted stout.
