Deep amber with a soft head that lasts. Nutty-sweet nose. Sugary malts, with notes of nuts, toast and light brown sugar. Zingy hops with decent bitterness to boot. Pinch of vanilla in the background. Very nice brown ale. afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - APR 17, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber with a small white head that fades to a ring. Aroma of light caramel and light roasted malt. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness. Good. charcot25 (181) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - APR 14, 2008
Pours a deep brown with red highlights and a thin off-white head. Aroma is minimal, only some English hops. The taste has some caramel, bread and light nutty flavors but doesn’t have the almond/hazelnut intensity of sam smith’s. Decent, just let it warm up a bit first. FlyingSwine (174) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2008
Pours a nice dark crimson, with a small tan head. Light aroma. Smells a touch like Goldings, but not quite. This one has a bit of a chemical aroma. Flavor is subtle, and fairly balanced, but too light to make an impression. Palate is thin, but not watery. Overall an okay brown, but was expecting better from a quality brewer. tkimbrought05 (37) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 10, 2008
Bottle. Nice brown color with a tan head. Aroma is kinda light, malty. Slight chocolate and biscuit taste. A little bit of caramel in the finish. A little bit of nuts also. Light on the palate.
Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - APR 3, 2008
Pours a clear orange-brown with a finger of creamy, beige head and matching lace. The nose is of fruity, burnt caramel and light metal. Medium-bodied with fine "expansive" carbonation; it actually feels as if it’s increasing in volume while it sits in your mouth; most curious. It finishes a bit astringent and lightly bitter with a touch of metal, as well. Burnt caramel, a faint nuttiness, and a bit of plastic, with a mildly bitter earthy-hopped finish. I generally like Bridgeport’s brews, but this one is an exception to that rule. raphael (1254) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 30, 2008
maple, chocolate, wheat toast. deep reddish brown w/ quick off-white head. a sting from carbonation and hops but also a thin and drying texture. honey, molasses, apricot malt flavors get a little balance from lightly citrus hops Crit (3996) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2008
