Very dark brown, i can only see that it is brown around the edges and when backed by light. NOSE - light hop scent, not overpowering, just right bitterness. Not sure of hop variety, but it’s not floral or fruity, or overly resinous.
FLAVOR - the brewery’s description is on point. Malt forward with a modest amount of hop bitterness. NOTES - solid brown ale. N3lson1 (1010) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Drank this brew years ago at the Pump Station, surprised I never rated it! Drank recently from a two litre growler pour from a tap at the Pump House! Pours a beautiful hazy, brown color with decent beige head. Has an aroma of roasted malts, slight nutty notes. Tastes roasty and complex, with the perfect smoothness. A good brew!

At the brewpub, this was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a dark brown color with a light transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising to fill a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds leaving some foamy lacing in a messy way.
The smell had a semi-sweet dry roasty nuts, caramel, toffee and a light cocoa combining into a light sharp resin.
The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors to combine initially and then as it warms more resin starts to kick into a decent little hop bite. Lingering resin and nuts lead into the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body so it becomes pretty sessionable. Carbonation comes across fairly smooth and allows the resin to be the bitterness over my tongue.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good American Brown Ale, hopheads might even like it. Leighton (22823) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2015
Keg at the brewpub. Pours clear, reddish brown with a beige cream head. The aroma holds light roast, coffee and toasted pine. Medium sweet flavor with nice floral and piney hops, moderate earthy bitterness, cocoa, slight espresso. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Good balance on the finish, slight piney resins, more toast, cocoa and pine. Solid. Braudog (6907) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Draft at the brewpub. Overall, I’d call this more of an amber ale, and am surprised to see it’s medaled (12 years ago). Moderately nutty, quite smooth, but really not much to say about it. Middle of the road. (#5796, 10/8/2014)
