On-tap at Albany Pump Station, Albany, NY

A: The beer is hazy very dark red in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short beige head that died down but left lots of patches of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of nutty malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the nutty malt flavors are a little stronger and seem to intensify as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has nice nutty flavors. It would pair very well with a meat dish.

Poured on-tap at the Pump Station, the beer was served in a shaker pint. Slightly hazed hazelnut color with a thin, filmy, light tan head. Clingy all over the glass. Nose of toffee rich and sweet, with a touch of roasting. Flavors reveal hints of chocolate, with a toffee backbone and hops bitterness. Very well balanced. Light bodied, with a clean, crisp finish. The aftertaste is rich, sweet, and roasted. Very good beer and very sessionable.

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.

Enjoy!

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
