Not a bad brown ale, but it’s nothing really to write home about. The body was creamy and smooth, but you can credit that to the fact that this beer was driven on a handpump. I got some brown sugar, earthy maltiness and light hop in the flavor. But everything else in this beer was rather bland and a bit unintersting.

Draft. Pours a brune body with a yellow off white head. Nutty malty body caramel and some dark fruit esters. Hint of wood and a thin sessionable brown ale. Good stuff. Adam77 (457) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2009
I liked this. Poured brown with off white head. Aroma of nuts. Smelled nice. Flavor of nuts and some fruit. Easy to drink. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2008
On tap at the New Hope location. On cask. Poured a deeper amberish / orangish color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of nuts, chocolate, and some roast. Tastes of nuts, chocolate, roast and caramel. lemasney (398) - Trenton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Sampler at Princeton. A rich, deep drink. No head or lacing. Deep with a medium to heavy depth. Nutty flavor and aroma. Dull hops flavor.

A clear, mahogany colored beer with an off-white, quickly fading head. Smooth, light, malty. The balance between malt and hops leans toward the malt, true to style. An enjoyable beer but not in the same league as Newcastle. jcwattsrugger (12524) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAY 14, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2009 on tap-pours a creamy light tan head with brown color. Aroma is roasty, nutty, sweet, dark malt, coffee(?). Taste is coffee, dark malt, medium body at most, minimal carbonation.

Draft at Rrinceton on engine. Pours translucent brown with a frothy off white head that laces all the way down the glass. Flavor is nutty but with a very mild malt backbone. A little thin for the mouthfeel, but still enjoyable. The brewer probably designed this to appeal to the inexperienced beer drinker, but still be acceptable to someone like me. The newcastle comparison is pretty close, but this one is creamier. Very enjoyable. Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2005
light brown pour, very roasty aroma. Nutty, grainy, smooth. A little light in mouthfeel, but quite quaffable. NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - FEB 12, 2005
2-12-05 Princeton Pub- Another hand pump.. This one I enjoyed handpumped. The smoothness of this beer in this fashion is incredible. I got the feeling if it was colder on tap, it would be a little rougher. VERY Similar to Newcastle. Nutty, roasty, sweet.. with a little hoppiness.
