12 oz bottle bought in Bar Harbor, Maine. Clear mahogany pour with a thick khaki head and good retention. Spotty lacing. Nutty nose. Taste follows. Lightly sweet. Clean and light. One-dimensional, but a good nut brown ale.

Richer and thicker than a normal brown. But mostly boring like a regular brown. Liked the Acadia park thunder hole better than the beer.

Bottle market district. Best by 9/2016. Sweet malty nose. Nose is there right after you pop it. Dark brown almost black it seems. Whew, a friendly tart dark tasting beer. Initially better than expected. Yes, looks good and tastes pretty good too with its charcoally flavors n that backed by that slight tartness. The alky is not overpowering, its there but just enough to let you know its presence. Grows on you. Could drink a couple of these. Almost comes across as a porter or lighter stout in character. Yea, I think this is a little more than a brown ale. You know, in the end, I find the carbonation is simply enjoyable, refreshing & sizzling. Low hopes with a fine finish. Pretty good stuff.

Tessic (1251) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2016
This ale poured a deep amber colour with a big, creamy, tan coloured head. A little lacing. Scents include sweet malts and caramel, a little vanilla and cream. First swig had a somewhat thin mouthfeel but the flavours of caramel, toast and cereal. Finish was a little smoky with a light hoppy bitterness lingering alongside of the caramel flavours.

A decent american brown ale. A solid offerring; nothing spectacular, but nothing that is offensive either.
