Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Boathouse Brown Ale is an easy drinking beer. Peering through the glass you will find a deep mahogany color and luscious tan head. The sweetness of the malt in our Brown Ale is offset by just enough kick from the hops. Boathouse Brown Ale will be your "everyday" beer. Pop the cap, pour it off and enjoy the ride!

A - Medium hazed brown with one finger of tan head medium lacing.
S - Roasted grains, a little nutty, metallic scents, some darker earthy hop aromas.
T - Metallic again, kinda thin, slight acrid bitterness, burnt grain kinda taste.
M - Very thin, bad metallic aftertaste, watery.
O - Just a bad brown, I dont know what it is, but i think it might be Sebago's water they use, there's an off trait in every one I've had.

When tried at a tasting between a sweeter Sebago Winter Warmer and their bitter IPA, the Boathouse Brown ale seemed like the perfect balance between flavor and smoothness. But having bought a 6 pack and trying it at home a few hours later, it's sadly unremarkable. Beautiful brown color and a nice smell of caramel and nuts, but the taste and mouthfeel is very watery and smooth to the point of slickness. Nothing lingers in the mouth or in the mind.

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a clear, light, auburn highlighted chestnut coloring with a thin, filmy, white ring around the surface. Aromas of nut and cream, with a subtle roasting. Very sweet on the nose. Roasty chestnut flavor on the forward tongue that is cleaned up quickly by the increased carbonation and light body. Nutty aftertaste, with a slightly sweet linger. The light body and quick aftertaste robs the palate of a chance to explore much further. Decent tasting for the short time your palate can absorb it.
