Foamy light tan head atop a cola colored pour. Slightly sour, yeasty aroma. Medium bodied fizzy mouthfeel. Slight sour tang with just a faint hint of coffee and a unpleasant metallic taste. Not particularly enjoyable.

On tap. 2nd favorite brew from this establishment. Pours brown with a tan clingy head. All malt and caramel in the nose. Flavors are the same – sweet, smooth malty goodness with a characteristic common to most of their brews that (others have noted maple) really works for me. Finish leaves me wanting more. This is what I pick for a growler to go.

Got this at the beer store in Nashua. Yes, its brown fer sure. Dark brown. Nice creamy head. Smell of J&L slag on blast-furnace night in Aliquippa while watch a movie at ABC drive in. I see tis 4.3% and I like that. One of the better brown ales I’ve come in contact with. Goes down easy, yes. Has a personality but its never in yer face, good job.

Purchased on a trip to Vermont in a small convenient store. Lots of carbonation creating a light overflow, and a big creamy-frothy beige head that stays very long. The brew is a deep amber colour and gives out aromas of apples at first pour. Then, nutty yeast appears. Fruity malt taste with light yeast and some decent hops. Good, but not my thing.

Weak, nutty aroma with a little metallic funk. Flavor is better, nutty caramel and lightly bitter, slightly smoky finish. OK, but nothing special, a decent cookout/tailgate option for non-beer-nerds.

Bottle. Pours copper with an off white head. Lightly toasted malts, some toffee and nutty sweetness, and a clean malty finish. Quite drinkable, and at 4.3ABV, super sessionable.

Bottlw at home in CT - thanks to brother Charlie. Pours clearish brown with a foamy tan head. Very basic brown bread nose with suggestions of berry fruits. Light to medium sweet flavor with some cigarette butts, more brown bread, toasted leaves. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with toasted brown bread, hints of burnt caramel, light earth and leaves. Actually a decent, tasty brown.
