Bottle and on tap. Pours reddish brown with tan head. Malty with caramel, minimal hops, nutty , medium body. A good brown ale Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - APR 7, 2013
Into a pint glass, it leaves a brown colored body, two finger white foamy head quickly dies and leaves spider web lacing; the smell has malts, toffee, light nuttiness, light honey, the taste is malty and sweet, nutty aftertaste and a quick sweet almost dry finish; the palate was light to medium, very sessionable, gets creamy and smooth; overall, this is pretty good for an English Brown Ale, I recommend if you like the style VALIS (229) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Aroma of caramel, soda, sweet bread. Nice foamy, nutty taste, hardy. Seems like something that would go well in a metal tankard while singing drinking songs. Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Heavy butterscotch aroma. Clear ruby brown color. Nutty sweet taste with light bitterness. Reminds of frosted flakes somehow. Medium body, easy drinker. Retreats halfway back to amber ale status. MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - FEB 12, 2013

Thin brown pour that’s see through. Tan head that disappears instantly. Aroma of light caramel and booze. Taste light malt, cola, and molasses. Super watery and thin on the palate. Drain pour. JuliusCaesar (162) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 14, 2013
A decent beer but not a stand out. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 20, 2012
On tap at the brewery in 2010; poured an auburn tinted brown. Aroma of caramel and nuts mostly. Flavor was the same but a bit more sweetness to it. A solid version of a style I generally like. dlovell2 (2097) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Brown color with tan head. Malt aroma and some nuttiness. Sweet malty taste some vanilla and toffee nut notes. johnnnniee (4285) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Pours a dark clear reddish brown color with a huge bubbly tan head that slowly recedes before leaving some spotty lace on the way down. Smells of caramel and brown sugar with a hint of tart fruit, earth, roast and butter. The flavor is heavy on the caramel and butterscotch with an earthy hop bite that provides some balance. Medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a creamy bubbly mouthfeel. So far this is the only brew I’ve had where I feel the diacytyl actually adds something to the beer. This is probably my favorite beer from Woodstock, but its still just an average beer.
