Had this organic ale out of a bottle. It had been sitting in my fridge for about a year untouched. Had a reddish brown with a nutty malty nose. Dry, palate with a hint of cocoa and more nuts. Decent but forgettable. I'd drink it again, but I would not go out of my way to purchase it.

I had originally tried this excellent organic brown ale on tap 9/8/2013 at the Appalachian Brewing Company on Chambersburg Road in Gettysburg. So good, in fact, that I bought a sixer to bring home. This review is for the bottled version, subsequently sampled chez moi on 9/17/2013.

A: hard pour into my Spaten mug reveals a dark root beer-like color, big head, nice lacing all the way down as I drank.

S: inviting malty and grainy aroma, makes me want to take a big swig

T: taste is bold and bitter, roasted grain, then the hops come on strong; no sweetness; delicious

M: medium mouthfeel, quenching

O: a well-balanced organic brown ale; perfect with bowtie pasta & fresh tomatoes/garlic/zucchini; thrilled I've got another five bottles to go
