Poured a clear, dark ruby color with brown swirling through it. The head was short, off-white and failed to produce much lacing. The aroma was caramel malts, faint hops and a touch of fruitiness. The flavor followed suit with caramelly sweetness leading the charge. Not enough roasted malt or chocolate to be considered all that well balanced. Thin, easy drinking mouthfeel.

Pours a clear brown with some reddish highlights, and a foamy tan head that fades quickly. Aroma of roasted malt and nuts, and some honey and brown sugar. Flavor is much the same, but a bit on the weak side. A decent six pack brown, but nothing great. 3fourths (9331) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Bottle. Clear cola and walnut brown colored body with a tan head. Nose is maple malt and brown sugar, light notes of toast, and a small lactic yeast note. Crisp and wet flavor, crusty toasted grains, wet bread, some walnut flavored toasted bread... decent enough for a brown ale but nothing to see here either...

Clear reddish broewn coloring, with a toasted malt nose, flavor has a bit of nuttiness, toasted cereal malts, some light fruit and spice, but there is really not much going on here. Not something I would buy again. IrishBoy (4185) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 30, 2008
12 oz bottle from Safeway, Port Angeles; Nose of vanilla, sweet caramel malt, and some brazil nuts; lightly hazy rusty brown with a medium cinnamon tan head; flavor has figs, brown sugar, and a small bitter hop note; finish is figgy with some very light bitterness and vanilla at the end. Very good brown ale! Could down this one anytime!

I like anything from Bridgeport, this brown was no different. It had a nice clear, Brown color with a head that dissipated quickly. There was a nutty taste with a mild hoppiness. Malt dominates, but it is not too sweet and/or cloying. It is very drinkable. glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Light brown with thin head. Minimal malt aroma with a nice, subtle taste of chocolate, roasted malt and a mild sweetness. A little nutty. Mild bitterness. DuffMan (10270) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 10, 2008
Bottle, shared with mmmIPA and Parksy. This was a lightly hopped brown ale, nutty and a little fudgey in the malt department. Very enjoyable. Enniskillen (2051) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 9, 2008
