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.

bhensonb (15858) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 25, 2009
Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Dark amber color with a quickly gone whiteish head. Aroma of caramel/malt. Medium body with lightly fizzy carbonation. Flavor is mild roast caramel with a bit of light hop. It’s really tasty. Finishes less than dry, but tasty.

3.1
djd07 (15688) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Bottle as shown. Pours a clear amber with a small off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a fruity malt and cereal. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet malt with chocolate. Easy to drink a good brown ale from Atlantic.

Drake (14109) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2008
12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA.

Pours a dark ruby color with a small head. The aroma is odd,

with maybe some infection notes... tart, nutty and with a

bandaid note. Taste is caramel, nuts, toffee and that bandaid

thing. Medium bodied.

3.4
Dogbrick (14009) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2005
This brew is a cherry cola color with a medium light tan head. Thin lacing that sticks to the glass pretty well. The aroma is very nutty, along with some malt and caramel. Thin at times and fairly smooth with a bit of a smoked character. Nutty and sweet malt flavor is decent but short-lived. Mildly hoppy finish. A decent session beer.

3.3
BeerandBlues2 (13872) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours clear brown with a medium, frothy light tan head, medium-short retention with good lacing. Aroma is caramel, chocolate, and lightly toasted malt, earthy hops and figs. Flavor is malt dominant with light to medium hops and bitterness, a pleasant chocolate note and a dry finish. Medium-light body and medium carbonation.
