had it in Bar Harbor, enjoyed it alot -- it was on tap everywhere - that was pretty cool. we wanted to tour the brewery, but it was closed. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 30, 2005
Smells like... paint. I’m seriously frightened to taste this. Its just plain bad. It tastes like clay. CLAY PEOPLE. some malt. Eww. Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - JAN 28, 2005
A drinkable, very English tasting brown ale. Nice mouthfeel, malty, with a slight bitterness at the finish. Not outstanding but a quite quaffable brew nonetheless. hotstuff (5258) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 14, 2004
Bottle. Large ivory head with fine-small sized bubbles, fair lacing, carbonated, transparent, and a reddish brown hue. Malty, caramel, sweet, and a somewhat of a sour aroma. Flavor was sweet, malty, caramel, and a little hint of hops. Smooth mouthfeel. Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2004
Medium-dark brown, earthy, nutty, toffee, but mild and on the thin side. Has a bit of some hop presence.

Slight hop aroma. Somewhat malty throughout, with a bit of a hop bite. A decent brew, but nothing outstanding. aracauna (3683) - Georgia, USA - OCT 26, 2004
I seem to have a much higher opinion of this than the rest of the group. Dark tea brown body, mostly clear, with a nice off-white head. The aroma starts off with a slight whiff of peppery noble hops. The malty flavor is hazlenut, a slight suggestion of coffee and a bit of apple peel. The flavor gains complexity as it warms. I think this beer would be best served only slightly chilled and served out of a handpump from cask. Not a bad session ale from the bottle though.

I bought this beer hoping it was a pale ale or something similar. Turns out it’s a brown, which was a bit of a dissapointment. Muted nutty aroma with a touch of sourness. Goes down easy enough, just not something I will remember or buy again. SpringsLicker (3677) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 22, 2004
Translucent brown body and an off white head.
Sour aroma that was a turn off.
Not much flavor comes from the thin body and finishes without much going on there either. Overall light and refreshing, but brown ales can be much more than what this one turned out to be. obisbeer (568) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 16, 2004
Deep, dull amber/brown with fine off-white head. Nose of sour malt with some hops, and light fruit. Light mouthfeel with bland finish. Flavors of malt, faint hops, and not a lot more. Some sour notes, though a mouthfeel that’s more like water than anything else.
