COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A good, clean nutbrown ale with a malty body. This is our most popular ale due to its smooth and malty flavor. We use a mixture of pale, crystal and black malts in this one, and our primary hop is Target, though we also add some Whitbread Goldings Variation as well. The Real Ale is best fresh, so fresh in fact, that it's great right out of the bright tank.

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a medium brown/red with a small off white head. Aromas of slight roasted malts, caramel, rasin?, and some earthy hops. Flavor is watery and thin. Much of the aroma comprises the flavor but much more subdued. Ehhh boring and not that good, ill pass

Tessic (1061) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2016
This ale poured a deep, dark amber colour with a light tan coloured head. Minimal lacing. Scents include molasses, roasted malts and a little wine? First swig was nice. A little thin but nice smooth flavour. Flavours of roasted malts and molasses are most prominent. Finish is nice and toasty with malty goodness lingering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slubgob (313) - West Hartford, USA - AUG 24, 2016
Tap into pint. Far too cold. Nutty nose, hazelnut? In the mouth, cold mutes flavors. Vague sense of brown malts. Finishes with a touch of light chocolate.

Bottle from Chevy Chase Supermarket. Dark brown body with thin head. Nose is toasty, caramel, dark chocolate. Taste is nice and sweet and malty. Creamy finish. Quite nice and super smooth.

Had this both on draft and in the bottle today and the draft definitely is a little smoother than the bottle. A decent brown; would be much better if it was a little smoother

Brown pour at dogfish in Portland Maine. Brown sugar and burnt leaves - mild and easy drinker. Pretty good

Light & drinkable brown. Has a decent palate but lacking in flavor. Quite mellow & malty. Ok.

rjplumer (1017) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 6, 2015
The aroma is nut with a touch of sweet caramel. Highly active off white head that starts enormous and is reluctant to come down. The body is rich but clear mahogany. Mild nut and spice taste. Malt character is smooth and clean to finish.

tekstr1der (423) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Pours a massive, unstoppable heap of dense off-white foam. Underneath there is some brown liquid, but I cant quite reach it. Trying harder, i get to the rather bland nutty and metallic flavor - like my first attempt at home-brewing a brown ale so many years ago. Big fan of their coal porter, but this is not quality.

ScipioA (405) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 2, 2014
The body looks like coke, but with a huge tan head of foam that lasts a long time. Aromas are pleasant chocolate, bread and vanilla, but with some unwelcome rubbing alcohol. For all its promising beginnings its actually pretty disappointing. Really not much here except a little sweet malt and a little bitter herb. Thin and watery body is also a let down. I guess if you get one of these just pour it, look at it, smell it, then walk away?
