On tap at American Flatbread in Burlington, sold as just Brown Ale. Quite a nutty aroma, toasted almonds, and some sweet pine resins. Flavor is quite nutty, and toasted, with a nice pine bite. Nice brown ale!

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2007
on tap at Flatbread. Clear brown/amber with a small off white head. Aroma is almost non-existent, which I thought might be because I had their IPA first. Taste is bland, grainy, but not enough caramel character. Finishes lightly sweet.

Glouglouburp (6001) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2007
Clear mahogany body topped by a medium off-white head with low retention. A little leather in the aroma does not suggest anything memorable. The body is well malted but it is full of flavourless boring “all-bran” cereals. None of the “brown” stuff I expect from a Brown Ale except for the color. Inexpressive hops in negligible quantity. Dull. I feel bore, I feel bored, so bored, so bored, cause I’ve got you… woo!!

TaktikMTL (5703) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2007
En fût. Verre de dégustation chez American Flatbread (Burlington, VT). Arôme: Odeur de caramel fruité. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée avec une moyenne densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux beige avec une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de caramel. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de caramel en arrière goût. (Rating #968)

My Bottom Line:
The light caramel maltiness and its adjoining peachy fruitiness do not point towards what you’d expect from the announced Brown Ale moniker. The lack of nuttiness and caramel depth disappoints as the drinker slowly realizes he’s drinking but a balanced amber ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the dark amber.
-Rather carbonated, the lack of brown ale maltiness is obvious.
-This is very drinkable, but also unmemorable.
-This is either their first attempt at a Brown Ale, or a Brown Ale angle I’ve never encountered before. In any case, they’ve brewed much better here.

On tap at the brewpub.
