In the south of England, they prefer their brown ale maltier and lower in alcohol. Here in Newburgh, we tend to agree. Verging on black, this beer pours with a light tan head and beautiful ruby highlights in the glass. The flavor is dominated by malty sweetness and gentle hints of chocolate and toffee. A nice and sessionable 4.2% alcohol content and medium to light body begs for an evening by the fire at your local pub.

Tap at brewery. Dark brown color. Thin off-white head. Rich malt and chocolate aroma. Very roasted character and nutty in flavor. Malts dominate in finish. A truly great session ale. My favorite so far of their offerings.

Can at home, thanks Tunga. Pours a cola like brown, head dissipates quickly. Aroma is toasted chocolate malts, faintly nutty, faint coffee. Taste is cocoa, toasted malts, a bit of faint black coffee. Lots of flavor from a low ABV. Smooth, thin bodied, high carbonation. Not a bad beer.

16 oz can. The pour is a nice darker brown with a thinner light khaki head that falls to a thin ring without any lace. The aroma is light and clean. There is a chocolate and a roasted malt with just a hint of lactose. Its interesting and it complex at all. Typical brown. The flavor is much of the same. There is a heavier lactose chocolate and a strong roasty malt. The surprising thing is definitely the possible addition of lactose sugar. The mouth feel is watery and light with a sharper carbonation and a lingeringly roasty malt finish. Its interesting but a typical brown. Definitely not my jam.

Nutty, slightly sour aroma. Pours dark brown with medium head. Roasty malts upfront with a pleasant bitter aftertaste. A standard but tasty brown. Tap at brewery.

nofearhatmatt (48) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2016
Pours very black for a brown ale, minuscule cream-colored head. Not much of an aroma. Tastes like dark chocolate. Has a slight aftertaste. The low Abv makes it very drinkable, but overall it's fairly mediocre.

Tap at 15 Church a nice restaurant in Saratoga. Fine brown pour nutty nose hint of chocolate. Tastes of nuts, earth, grainy, chocolate, roasted malt. Chewy palate but drinkable. Touch rough edges.

Drank as a sample at Big Brew Fest NJ. Pours a beautiful hazy brown color. Amazing maly aroma, probably my favorite beer at the fest!
