Overall, this is one terrific brown ale. It has nutty and biscuit-like notes. Drinks very smooth and is definitely sessionable. If you're near Tom's River, NJ, definitely head down to Rinn Duinn and try this out. It's a fantastic offering from a brad new brewery.

Smell: Nutty and bready
Taste: A mouthful of bisquitty, nutty goodness
Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, a little thin
Overall: Good representation of the style. Easy drinking. Overall a very solid beer.

12 oz. bottle, unfortunately the space for the "bottled on" date is blank. Quite murky as expected from an unfiltered ale. Just about two fingers of foam leave some sparse lacing. Earthy aroma, roasty and a bit chocolatey. Hops contribute some floral notes, and even a bit of earthy dankness, which is a bit unexpected for East Kent Golding and Target.

Earthy and malt-forward on the palate, though there's enough bitterness to push this more toward the American end of the brown ale scale (playing to the home audience, perhaps). Some roasted grain character and other malt complexity comes through just fine, though. The soft, non-prickly carbonation is appreciated. Overall, this is a pretty tasty brown ale. It's good to a see a Jersey brewer tackle what seems to be an underappreciated style, and do it well to boot.
