The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
Draft at the brewery. A very well-made classic style brown ale, and I think the Oregon Trail house yeast (not sure exactly what it is) fits this beer the best. This brown ale is wet and sweet up front with ample maple and a light nutty spice note, changing to a more dry and starchy finish across the back of the tongue. Very flavorfull when fresh, and very well-made. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 7, 2004
on tap at oregon trail. it was hard to take notes as the guy there came and gave us a history lesson about the trail and stuff. but this was a tame, toffeeish and then dry brown ale ClarkVV (6708) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 13, 2004
2004 draught. Great mahogany brown appearance, mostly hazy with some light cherry reds peaking out and a small off-white head. Aroma of dark fruits and chocolate. Lightly salty and hoppy as well. Flavor is a mix of chocolate, sticky toffee, brown sugar and a strange almost beef jerky like saltiness. Ends dry and too watery. The yeast has gone mad and has some very strange notes, or is that stale hops? The roast seems a bit out of place on the light and watery finish. Starts out well but then just falls apart. That happens some times.

Trail. Sweet nuts and caramel, quite malty, like their others, it felt a bit empty, but it was drinkable.

Brown color, nice head, nose of light crystal malts & fruity hops. Light roast & a bitter hop flavor. The finish is a bit tangy & too bitter for me. Next!
