This is a really satisfying Brown ale. Hold on, let me start over. This is a fantastic and excellent Brown ale. Having never been to the Albany Pump Station, I happened to be there a week ago for a pre-wedding something. While the wedding stuff was happening, I was able to sit at the bar and enjoy a handful of these vessels of delicious. Goes well with an hearty meal, with its own abudance of hearty. I no little about the Brewing Company, but I have had my share of beers and this one ranks competitively with the best. Very enjoyable and I am very impressed with this American Brown.

In Albany on a business trip and stumbled upon The Albany Pump Station. Obviously had on tap
A-Dark brown with a slight tan finger head, slight lacing
S-Getting lots of roasted malts, some spice and caramel
T-Nice taste, get lots of roasted malt along with a nice hoppiness that gives this beer a nice bitterness on the finish.
M-Medium bodied, slight carbonation.
O-A very well balanced beer brewed locally. Very subtle but good

this beer drinks like a dark pale ale with an intense hoppiness in the nose and great grain character. It's quite sweet with loads of hop bitterness to complement. The carbonation really pushes this beer into a light, drinkable brown ale. Very effing tasty beer

64 oz growler poured into my bruery tulip. Thanks to naproxen for the hook up.
A: Deep brown color. Not much head comes from the pour, but it does leave a thin collar. No lacing to speak of.
A: Very hop forward nose for a brown ale. I get notes of chocolate, slight roast, and citrus hops.
T: Again, surprisingly hoppy. Chocolate malt notes and citrus. I get a bit of a metallic taste toward the back end. It finishes dry and somewhat sweet with no hint of the abv.
M: good levels of carbonation, medium body.
O: A different take on the style and one I am glad I got to try. I think I prefer the more malty browns, but this is a nice departure from what I'm used to.
