Not sure I've ever rated anything straight across the board like this. I thought this was a decent brown ale.
A: a little lighter -auburn to maybe even slightly amber, but with a nice sustaining head and decent lacing
S: toasted malts, some nuttiness, even a little coffee
T: typical brown front, an English kind of yeast taste and bitterness. The hop intensity is a little above normal, but that works. Carbonation adds to feel, which is better than the appearance indicates.
O: a decent little brown ale. Not gonna immediately grab a six-pack, but would grab a pint on a future trip.
Serving type: on-tap

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
