Poured into a mug, the appearance was a mild dark brown color with a fingers worth of sly rocky white head. Mess lace. The aroma had a big nutty presence and then a roasty malt with a sly sweet caramel backbone. The flavor leaned sweet and grabbed the malts to run into the aftertaste and then the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Mild carbonation. Good ample ABV. Overall, nicely done brown ale that I would have again.

Draught at the Brewpub in Farmington. This is nothing special. Good to stop by if you are in town though.

A copper amber ale with a thin light mocha head. In aroma, nutty roasted malt with light fruity esters. In mouth, a nice roasted malt with light coffee, nutty herbal hops, not bad. On tap at BIA, July 30, 2012.

In short: A typical creamy and nutty brown ale. Good example of an unexciting style
How: Bottle 22oz, improvised HF 1rst anniversary camping tasting
The look: Clear bronze body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is mostly toasted and nutty like I would expect from a good brown ale. Taste is creamy, hazelnuts, a bit of peanut butter, chewy soft bread crust, caramel. Basically this is a standard archetypical brown ale. Not to say it is great (it is a basic brown ale after all, not an exiting style) but there is nothing wrong with this beer and deserves a bit better than its current lousy 3.2 average, and no one dares question my opinions, I said NO ONE, your hear me? NO ONE!!!

22oz bottle. Beer is perfectly clear and a beautiful deep golden brown. Carbonation is fairly low, just a tickle. Aroma is fruity/toasted grainy, perhaps slightly brackish. Theres a warm toasty flavor, somewhat earthy, that goes great with fried onions/potatoes. I really like this beer, especially with food. Yay beer!
