12oz screw-top bottle from the local Hannaford. Pours a translucent dark brown body with a quarter-inch of light tan head. Butterscotch, caramel, brown sugar dominate the aroma. Tastes sweet, with caramel, butter, and chocolate notes. Flavors are definitely understated, which is not uncommon for the style. Light in body, bordering on aqueous, with moderate carbonation. Fairly middle-of-the-road as far as drinkability is concerned, quaffable but doesnít go down as easy as it could. Overall a solid English Brown.

From the bottle... Great color, rich malty aroma - sweet caramel notes. Pleasant medium body with slightly bitter front end and crisp moderately sweet finish. Great Brown Ale.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2010 This is one of my favorites. Whenever I go up to NH I always pick some up. Very smooth brown ale with a good aftertaste. This stuff is excellent on tap. Recommended.

Great brown. Malty, no hops on my tongue, no bitter just agreeable malt. Brown as it should be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2008 By far the best the Woodstock Inn has to offer IMO. Dark copper brown color. Tastes and smells lightly sweet, coco, a hint of roasted nuts. Nice malty taste, donít notice the hops as much. Sweet after taste that lingers. Very nice beer except for my big complaint- the alc% 4.3 is kinda lame but that should take away from enjoying this beer. 1/12/08 - I just tried a 2nd bottle and it was so awefull i had to throw it out, i have no idea why the difference, it was in my fridge the whole time, i will have to buy another pack for a third try and to re-rate.

Bottle. This is a damn good brown. Has a perfect amount of toffee sweetness, roast, very light hops. Mildly nutty, quaffable, smooth on the palate. Everything is completely balanced and in check in this one. Well done.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 8, 2001
A big rich flavor, coupled with sweet aftertaste that isnít overwhelming. I like this much better than Newcastle, but it isnít as good as Sam Smithís Nut Brown Ale.
