Dark brown pour from a can, half inch head quickly dissipated. Aroma of caramel. Taste similar, some sweetness but well balanced. Smooth, decent brown ale ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16oz can purchased somewhere in the wilds of the Northeast Kingdom. Pours a reddish brown with a tan head that doesn’t stick around. Sweet malt aroma. Caramel and nutty notes. Just another brown ale.

ben4321 (6773) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Location: 16 oz can from Winooski Beverage, 8/23/15




Aroma: The nose of this beer is roasted malts, heavy malty in general, nutty, light toast


Appearance: This over pours a brown color with light brown/tan head and medium-plus lacing


Flavor: Taste-wise, this is nutty and malty, a little sweet, roasty as well, lightly bitter


Palate: It drinks fairly lightly, not watery, with a soft carbonation, and a smooth, clean closure


Overall Impression:
I found this to be really drinkable and clean. It works nicely. The flavor and aroma aren’t strong enough for me to go higher than this from a score perspective, but it’s a minimally flawed beer with a nice mouthfeel.

malrubius (3048) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Can from Lisai’s CHester Market. Brown with lasting small head. Toasted caramel nuts and fruit aroma. Very toasted caramel nuts coffee and some plummy fruit sweetness with some herbal woody bitterness and lingering roasted nuttiness. Medium body. A good brown ale, though brown ales are not really my favorite.

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Bottom of the can stamped 06/09/15.
This was poured into a mug.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy dark brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light messy lacing sticking around the glass.
The smell started off with a nutty spiciness allowing allowing fair cocoa and coffee to balance.
The taste was sweet nutty and cocoa. Letting the coffee become the bitter part. Lingering sweet to nutty character runs in the aftertaste. There’s no finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed good for the style and for me. Bitterness is there but not overbearing.
Overall, as an American Brown Ale it works. I’d have again.

arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Pour out of 16 oz can, dark brownish pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of nice bread, caramel, and nutty notes with a hint of cocoa, some slight spice, yeasty notes with some earthy notes. Taste was a mix of nutty, cocoa, and caramel notes into some earth, some slight fruity notes with some toast, finishing slightly sweet.
