It's hard to wow me with a brown ale. This brown is decent but nothing amazing. Certainly has caramel and roasty notes, but they don't jump off the page. Easy to drink. Mild head.

Pours about as dark as I’ve ever seen a brown ale! Aromas of plums, raisens and burnt sugar – strange but pleasing! Taste carries heavy malt and still the burned sugar, but not too sweet. Overall interesting. Really want to try this fresh from the tap!Pours about as dark as i’ve ever seen a brown ale.

Paradigm is aptly named for changing the way you look at a brown ale. Like so many others I've spoken with, I'm not usually a brown ale drinker. This beer is rich and complex in mouth feel, aroma and flavor.

22 oz bottle was poured into a Hoegaarden 0.33L glass.

Appearance: A one finger off white head was poured that reduced a puffy layer. It is an amber brown color with some vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Roasted, chocolate, bready, burnt toast, caramel, some light citrus, and piney notes too.

Taste: Same as above. Nice malt notes and simple hop flavor with some bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little chewy, some bitterness, light to medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty nice brown ale. Will Revisit These guys again when passing through or heading up to my brothers cottage in Atkinson.
