A: Pours a dark brown with some ruby highlights. A small, beige head forms but recedes in a second. Thin lace is left behind.
S: Toasted malt, chocolate and caramel malts. English type yeast as well. Lightly woody. A nice malty aroma.
T: Again, a very nice malty treat. Toasted malt, baked bread, chocolate and caramel malts along with some English yeast. Finishes with a dry woody flavor. Very nice.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. Crisp , but smooth and creamy at the same time. Even chewy. So easy and enjoyable to drink. Something I can quaff all day.

Not a big beer at all. Though hardy enough, with a great toasted warm malt flavor to make it perfect to put several back during the winter months. A very under rated brewery that makes another solid beer. Something I would recommend.

Pours and looks delicious. Nice caramel to with heavy toastiness. Big full tan head and a very brown clear body with deep red/garnet highlights.
Aroma fades some and a yeasty quality shows forth. Not a big issue, but too bad as the initial shots were quite nice.
Nice heavy feel with a full malt flavor. Roasty/toasty drying on the finish. Little bits of sweetness up front, but that's about for that. Just a nice mouthful of heavy malt darker malt flavor with a touch of hops and tartness (on occasion)
This is a good and very solid brown ale. Seems to have a touch of an english ale yeast, which adds a little character.
Fans of brown ales this one should work for you.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle into a tulip
A- darker than expected, deep brown with off-white head that lasts a bit.
S- not too much going on here. wanted more.
T- roasted nuts, can taste the booze, tobacco, earthy favors.
M- decent carbonation, dry finish.
O- pretty good, yet different for its style. I prefer bit more nutty/caramel and a little less earthy-smokeyness but a nice change of pace from say an Ellie's Brown Ale

Poured from a bottle into my Dogfish goblet.

Appearance: Much darker than I expected, particularly for a brown ale. Some white lacing that quickly dissipates, leaving slight lacing on the side.

Smell: About what you'd expect: malty and sweet, with a little bit of fruit and alcohol.

Taste: Follows the nose: toast, rye, raisins, caramel, a little bit of hop bitterness to balance everything out. Some warming alcohol toward the finish.

Mouthfeel: Middle of the road. Very drinkable.

Overall: A very drinkable yet average version of a brown ale. Nothing bad about it, but not as good as I usually expect from New Holland. But, for the price, it was worth it, and a good brown ale to pair with some food or for a lazy evening.
