After last week's disaster with Trout River Choclate Stout, I was a little gun shy about adventuring into something else. I have seen Shed around but never triied it until tonite. The suprise I got tonite was one I would welcome anytime. I spent the same money (about ($9.00 for 6) but this time instead of anemic, flat, disgusting ,rusty barrel water, I discovered an amazing beer. Everything is right here. Pours dark with a beautiful creamy head. Full bodied high quality malt with a light hop finish. This is an amazing beer. They don't get any better. 7.4 % what else could one want?

This beer is awesome on a New England Fall day. Goes down smooth, and at 7.4% abv, a 6 pack will do the trick. Great beer!

Ignore all the other reviews. This is the best brown ale I have ever had, with wonderfully nuanced Hops and bitterness, and with a slight chili aftertaste. It is pure and clean ,deceptively strong; a temporary reprieve from all your troubles. Do not drive

Shed - Mountain Ale - 12fl oz bottle

Look - Nice looking 6-pack, fresh marketing from Shed, was surprised to find this at the grocery store, although it is a local brew so it makes sense. Pours a dark brown sugar with a minimal head.

Smell - Malty and bitter, but appetizing.

Taste - An interesting bite, a tasty malt and cocoa attack, slight hop wave finish.

Mouthfeel - Smooth and casual, surprisingly tasty bite with a "throat bomb" at the end. So drinkable.

Overall - This brew is deceptively smooth for a 7.2%, it goes down with grace. Enjoyed wholeheartedly.
