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.

On Tap at the Brewery 10-16-13
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.
