look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

From the 22 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on March 10, 2013.

The pour is a medium amber with a tremendous off-white puffy head that lingers and a slight cloudiness.

The aroma is mellow and sweet with malts and a mild caramel scent. The hops are downplayed on the nose.

The body is about medium and on the smooth side.

The flavor begins with a bready sweetness and then evolves into a low to moderate bitter hop ending. Not a lingerer but actually quite nice. This is a drinkable take on a classic style. Looking forward to the beers from this brewery.

Looks like a solid coloring to it. With a smell of a wide mix of fruits to it. Tastes like a like a bitter and sweet caramel at the same time to give a good finish. The feeling is a smooth and uneventful one. Overall this was a fair beer that I won't scold nor complement.

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Color was a darker amber, with a 2 finger bubbly head. Head had no cling, and started shrinking immediately. Plenty of carbonation rose from the bottom. Primary smell seemed to be a grainy yeast. A bit of sweetness, almost banana, but not much. Flavor was slightly sweet, almost a bit of mellow banana fruit. A bit of pepper spice towards the back, but nothing major, just enough to give it a kick. Coated fairly well, but finished up a bit thin and watery for some reason. Overall, not bad. Fairly mellow, but with enough flavor to stay interesting.

Poured from 12 oz can into pint glass. Nothing special about the look or feel of this one. Weak red/amber color with too much head. More over carbonation than head. Something I didn't like about the smell and taste but can't put my finger in it. Just not impressed with this one from 603.

A mellow offering from this brewery that is getting a lot of positive speak in the New England area...

Pours a mostly clear deep amber brown color with a decent sized fluffy off white head that persists for quite a while. The aroma is a nice mix of caramel, toffee, sweet and brown sugars with a light but present aroma of citrus and light earth and pine. The flavor is malty with a fruity edge to it and a light bit of hop presence. Sweet caramel and sugary malts with quite a bit of toffee flavor to round things out. There's a firm earthy hop presence to attempt to counter the sweetness, but this one leans more towards the malty side. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet light syrupy mouthfeel. This is a nice beer, it's not horribly complex, but it's certainly a well made flavorful brew. I can't wait to try some more offerings from this newcomer.
