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.

Brown ale is a style that I don't choose first. This beer has changed my opinion. After 15 years of visiting my in-laws in New Hampshire, I finally found some micro breweries. At the suggestion of the bottle shop owner I grabbed a bottle of Paradigm Brown Ale.
Of the half dozen bottles purchased it was the first one cracked.
A bomber shared amongst four people, everyone had the same opinion. It was like no other brown they had tasted.
Incredibly smooth, beautiful head, great aroma, one bottle wasn't enough.
Chocolate, butterscotch, toffee, and hops.
Very well balanced. Very drinkable.
My only regret is not purchasing more.

This beer is excellent. I'm not usually into brown ales, but this one has changed my feeling towards them. Can't wait to see what they have in store for their stout!

A stellar brown ale. Pours a beautiful medium maduro wrapper brown with a light tan head. Nice lacing on the rinsed glass and 1 inch of head after being poured into a large stein glass from a 22 oz bottle.

Clean up front actually a light mouthful despite its color . Very fresh. More roasted nut and light carmel flavors than coffee for me. Very creamy and lingering finish. Creme brulee like? Good hop balance but slightly favoring the malt side. Perfect fall beer.

Not my favorite style of beer but one of the best in its class.

l. Dark brown with a two finger foamy head when pouring a 22 oz bomber into a pint glass. Once settled, it has a bit of amber color as well. The head remains at about 1 finger throughout the beer.

s. Faint nutty sent. Not overpowering in the least. Some grapefruit notes as well.

t. I know this is more mouthfeel, but there is a creamy aspect to this beer that is something special, and it does loose that creaminess as the beer settles. I suggest pouring this beer 6 - 8 oz at a time to get a refreshed head and added creaminess throughout. The head will continue to grow. There is a bitter aspect to the beer that comes through a bit if you allow it to settle. If you like that, forego the suggestion above. Nutty, malty, well balanced, some hoppy pine on the finish. This is a very well crafted beer. Kudos to the craft beer cellar in Nashua NH for recommending this beer for me.

Mouthfeel is outstanding, as is the overall aspect of this beer. I have not enjoyed a brown like this since visiting breweries in Toronto in 1990.
