Sampled on tap at the Sea Dog Pub in South Portland, Maine on August 19, 2014.

Brown in color with a modest off-white head and good clarity.

Big caramel malty and nutty aromas with a yeast sensation. Could be Ringwood. That is what it reminds me of.

Medium to above medium body.

Otherwise this is a fairly typical sweet malty and nutty brown ale.

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a light, clear, brown coloring with only a thin, filmy, clingy white surface coating. Aromas of very sweet nut and toffee, with a slight roasting. Flavors are a bit watery, with a roasty, nutty sweet backbone and a touch of chocolate on the tail end. Sweet, light aftertaste with a slightly cloying finish.

Tap at the pub in Northborough.

Very light fizzy head, since they filled the pint glass to the brim! Lighter auburn toasty brown color.

Nose is light, touch of brownish malts, hint of toasty red malts, some light bittering earthy hops.

taste has light toasty brown malts, light syrupy flavor like extract, some caramel, bit of sticky syrupy malts and toasty red malts, hint of dark porter like roast even. Then bitter hops kick in, earthy slight herbal hops, decent bitterness. Finishes drier but still slightly sweet and sticky, fairly bitter on the immediate finish bit that fades quickly, and some brown caramel malt flavors.

Mouth is med bodied, decent carb.

Overall not bad, decent malts, nice hop kick, a bit of the syrupy side and maybe some extract but drinkable and tasty.

Cask conditioned, served at the Bangor location. Served at room temperature. The dense cloudines slowly rises into the head until it was clear. Light brown/heavy copper in color. Full lacing was left through the whole glass. A small aroma if toffee malts. The toasted malts appear again in the taste as well as some grains. Finished with a small hop character. Very creamy beer, has no carbonation. This reminded me of Kilkenny as I was consuming. A decent beer that may have been made slightly better from the cask.
