3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at brewpub. Off white head, almost a maple aroma, clear brown color. Sweet malty flavor with a slight hop finish. not a bad session ale.
Poured into a pint glass at the brewpub, the appearance was a moderately dark brown color with a sly transparency to it. Bar pour’s kind of slim white head dissipates immediately. No lacing.
The aroma starts with roasty sweet nutty to caramel and then some nutty malts. Sly grassy, semi-dirty/earthiness, mostly acceptable.
The flavor leans nutty sweet, nice roasty level, acceptable bitter grassy happiness to balance. Sly sweet nutty aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this was a decent sessionably smooth Brown ale deep with a rich sly maltiness laying down on my tongue appropriately. Carbonation seems to ride nice and low.
Overall, nice English styled brown ale that I would have again. AdamChandler (5050) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 28, 2014

In short: A creamy, nutty and refreshing session brown ale. A superior example of this simple styledeyholla (11597) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2011
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear light bronze body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose of freshly roasted cashews and freshly baked whole-wheat bread. Mouthfeel is round and creamy, soft bread crust, walnuts, a bit of caramel, some notes of refreshing fruit salad and a light tartnesss. Straightforward beer but nonetheless a very good example of this simple style, nothing super-exiting but I could drink pints and pints of this basic beer. Nice one, a tad underrated. Bobcat is located in the heart of Bristol, so Bobcat named a beer after the downtown part of Bristol, the whole 500 square feet of it.
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear amber brown with an off-white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of dark grains and bread with a hint of bitter chocolate. Flavor had a slight chocolate note with growing dark grain and bread notes.

Draft at the brewpub - Poured a clear dark brown in color with a small light tan head. Aroma was medium of roasted malts with a medium hopiness. Flavor followed the same. Finish is malty (roasted) with a small amount of hop bitterness. While I would not consider highly rated, this beer is very drinkable... a good one to repeat in future visits.
