The beer comes in a dark amber brown to brown.

The aroma offers toasty malts, rich bready sweetness, some woody hops, toasted walnuts.

The flavor offers nutty, toasted whole grain, with a medium caramel sweetness with medium plus bitterness of woody hops.

The carbonation is medium plus with a medium mouthfeel as the bitter cuts into that mouthfeel.

This is a well put together Brown Ale that has lots of taste going on.
Poured for a 12 oz bottle into a Pub glass showed off a nice dark brown brew with a tan head, the head was slight and went South fast which was the only negative I have for this beer. Aroma was a knock out after it warmed about 15 minutes (took a short walk with my Wife) and I was half finished, lots of dark sugar sweetness and roasted notes come through and really wake up the nose. The taste is solid with bitter sweet roasted malty goodness,the bitter sticks around the whole way and makes for a nice finish. Mouthfeel is medium with just enough carbonation to get the job done while keeping things tasty and rich as too many bubbles take away from the flavor depth for me. Overall I think this is one of the better Brown Ales I've had, it has everything I'm looking for in a beer of this style and I have a few more to enjoy very soon.

Poured from a 12 oz can. This beer had a bit of a sour tinge that did not meld with a well made brown. Not sure if this was a bad can or what. It was received in a beer of the month box.

ADIRONDACK BEAVER TAIL BROWN ALE 11/1/15

Another single in a put together mixed sixpack from the Lake George NY Price Chopper. That part of NY state is not exactly crawling with good beer stores.

Enjoying the label art of a beaver by his pond. Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Tree House stemmed tulip.

a; Clear copper with a finger thick offwhite head which receded to wispy surface foam and some patchy lacing.

s: Mild caramel malt leaning to - is it my imagination? - wet beaver fur. I imagine.

t: Caramel malt with a medium bitter bite following and lingering to dominate the finish.

m: Light to medium, ok body and intense carbonation tingle.

o: Billed as an "American brown ale," and the hop bite is definitely stronger than your average English brown. In fact it takes center palate stage from the malt, with mixed results.

Trade extra. Much different type of brown ale than I'm used to with the hops starring in the show. Very refreshing, summery brown ale.
