Pint on tap at their South Portland brewpub.

Appearance: Kind of lame looking. No head at all, no lacing, pretty much completely flat. Sort of looks like iced tea.

Aroma: Sweet malt, nuttiness, standard brown ale aromas.

Taste: Nice, reasonably rich nutty, malty flavor with some caramel backing. Pretty tasty. Better than Newcastle, which is the measuring stick for the style, I think.

Mouthfeel: Medium to somewhat light for style.

Overall: This beer looked pathetic, but it more or less made up for it nice malt flavor. An OK beer for a chilly autumn afternoon.

Sampled on tap at the Sea Dog Pub in South Portland, Maine on August 19, 2014.

Brown in color with a modest off-white head and good clarity.

Big caramel malty and nutty aromas with a yeast sensation. Could be Ringwood. That is what it reminds me of.

Medium to above medium body.

Otherwise this is a fairly typical sweet malty and nutty brown ale.
