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.

Once upon a time back in March, I stopped by Kelsen Brewery and was handed a sample of this delicious brew...I’ve never been a big brown ale fan but like a hoppy beer, but not over the top...well they changed my mind forever! It all starts with the aroma once you pop the cap...roasted nut/caramel like, with hints of chocolate and coffee...wonderful foamy head that sticks around...it pours a deep rich dark brown...the taste is where it’s all at...roasted malt sweetness upfront, (refer to aroma for taste), but not too sweet...followed by a very fine, almost resin type hop takeover, with floral hints, that carries all the way to the finish...very smooth finish...outstanding quality and attention to detail went into this beer with lots of love...I’ve been drinking micro/craft beers since 2002 and this is one, if not the best beer I have ever put my lips too...and just like Lay’s chips, you can’t drink just one! So what are you waiting for? Seek out this beer if you want your taste buds to explode, you will not be disappointed...and that’s a promise from this guy!

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.

Stellar American Brown Ale. USOBC gold Winner and deservedly so. Doesn't thin out like a lot of browns and has great roasty, chocolate, and hop flavors. Complex!

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.
