Poured into a pint glass this tasty brown had a wonderful light caramel head and a nice brown glow. Real clear brown in the glass with a nice alpenglow-esk appearance.Real malty nose with a slight hint of hops and coco. Mouthfeel was real light and airy. Good carbonation that faded towards the end of the glass.

Smooth, Smooth, Smooth. This one slide right down the back of your throat. Even malt throughout with very little bitters. This is a tongue carresser and I'd make her dinner.

Pleasant dark brown with an amber tint..

Subtle smokey aroma of oats and chocolate..

Smooth..slightly malty..with a dry finish that was very enjoyable.

Thin ..non filling mouthfeel..had session written all over it.

This is a very drinkable brown..at 5.2 ABV its pretty low alc for an
American craft brew. I was pleasantly surprised by this new addition to the Bridgeport line. I'll have a pint of this anytime it's on cask..very nice pint!

I'm happy to see this new offering from Bridgeport hit the markets (in early January 2007). Poured my 12 oz. bottle to a standard pint.

A: Fairly light chestnut brown, clear and with a little visible carbonation when held to light. Just a sliver of dense white head, less than 1/2 finger, which fades to a razor-thin ring. No lace.

S: Surprisingly robust roasted malt & rolled oats, a little smoky.

T: Good semi-sweet roasted maltiness, quite nutty and with an aftertaste of toasted whole wheat bread. A little cocoa and smoke in the dry finish. Gently bitter finish.

M: Just the slightest metallic-sour taint in the mouth - apropo in a brown ale. Medium body with bitter & clean finish. Faint carbonation.

D: A solid, if unspectacular, brown ale. It certainly went down easy enough and went especially well with an oyster po-boy. Worth giving a try and good enough to pick up some more.

12 oz bottle, typical Bridgeport bottle bur label is different. Very handsome looking ale brown, clear with amber tones, large tan head, its tight and thick. Aroma is quite shallow, malty and with a touch of creamy oats. Nice semi-bitter malts at first then a touch of hops balances the account at the end, slight coffee accents, and a bit of treacle . Thin on the palate but quite OK for traditional brown ale. Overall an easy drinking beer, but nothing to get excited about.
