2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
[bottle] Nice nutty aroma, some light sweetness. Brown, slightly hazy appearance. Flavors are nutty malts, barely sweet and quite drinkable, but not really outstanding in any way. Thin bodied, with pretty strong carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/new-hampshire/g target=blank>Glen Beverage) OK but kind of dull...Pours clear brown with a very big foamy light tan head. Smells lightly of caramel and milk chocolate. Mouthfeel a bit thin and dry, lightly fizzy. Nice lacing. Flavor is weakly chocolatey, something else in there as well that seems a bit off. Perhaps a hint of sour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 This beer came to me in my beer club - I have never heard of the brewer before. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with a large tan head. The aroma is somewhat faint but has elements of roasted malts, molasses and fruity hops. The flavor is quite bitter with floral hops and only a hint of roasty malts. What malts there are combine with a molasses element and finishes long on the tongue.

Another beer from of the beer of the month club. 12 oz. Bottle. Pours a murky light red with a creamy white head and lacing. Nice malt nose with a bit of earthiness. Balance malt flavor with a nice hop bite in the finish. Slightly watery body but still a nice beer.

Vermont Brewer’s Fest 2006, draught sample. Light fairly clear amber-brown with a touch of head.....the aroma is pleasantly nutty, a hint of honey, some woody-vanilla hints, but a bit of dark oiliness as it warms doesn’t help....the body is husky, dry and of little character, nutty hints are barely evident and there’s just not a lot of malt, and no hops to speak of....just no "there" there if you know what I mean; I have trouble describing anything else so I’ll just leave it at: dull.

Very nice malt character with a firm hop bite on the end. I love these types of beers that have strong malt character and a strong hop character. Very drinkable as well.

A very average brown ale. Pours brown with a foamy white head. Has aroma of malt, nuts and some sour notes. Flavor grew on me- definitely don’t serve to cold.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2006 Re-rate: After a few of these, I am beginning to see the better points. Nutty-Bready aroma. Rich copper color. Pours nicely into a glass with nice foamy tan head. Nice carbonation - tiny little bubbles rising. Flavor is very smmoth and drinkable. I will buy this one again!
