    Aroma: 4 | Appearance: 3 | Mouthfeel: 3 | Flavor: 5 | Overall: 4

    Almost no nose to speak of. Some lightly roasted malts possibly Crystal malts. Do light brown body topped with almost no head and no lace. The mouth is thin and tingly. Some vague hints of chocolate in the flavor but primarily tear which is very odd for the style and a bit of a chemical aftertaste. A bit more Hoppy than one expects and lacking in that bread flavored component. If you have to have a two roads beer that I like. Anybody want five bottles?

    Mild nose, pine, papaya, grains of paradise. Clear gold body with nice continuing carbonation, frothy white head , moderate lace. Medium mouth, good tingle, fully coating..Pine and fruit combine in the mouth and are hard to pick out separately which is a nice change. A bit of warming alcohol at the end. Leaves the palette coated. but fairly neutral aftertaste. This is a one note beer but its a rndeally really nice note, very quaffable!

  • Charter Oak 1687 Brown Ale
    rated 3.7 1 week ago

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 6 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 8

    Bread dough, vanilla, baking spices, in the nose. Deep Ruby Brown body with an off-white head leave the skim coat and a touch of lace. Mouth is both creamy and tingly nice carbonation level fully coating. There's a lot going on in the flavor with fairly distinct phases. Start creamy with just a hint of dark fruit in the middle and a touch of charred malt and chocolate towards the end. Aftertaste is slightly sweet slightly oily and slightly bitter, very drinkable.

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 10 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 8

    Nose of Pine and biscuit and some significant malt. copper body with a frothy egg-white head that lasts forever and has incredible lace. Creamy medium mouth with significant tingle. Flavor is nicely bitter in an old fashioned IPA way. Some almond some Pine resin some biscuit some leather Touch of unpleasant aspirin in the back end.

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 9

    Mild nose grass and light malts. Reminds me of Hamm's the beer refreshing if you're old enough to remember that. Medium to deep Gold Body almost clear topped with a nice white head that has a lasting skim coat and a bit of lace. Mouth is light but not watery maybe just a little creamy lots of carbonation going in there. Maybe slightly too much carbonation. A lot of pills flavor going on here but more sweetness. Sam's Boston Lager headed to Bavaria but kept a little of Sam's traditional flavor profile with it. There's some lemon some pepper some biscuit and a fair amount of grass. It's pretty tasty and pretty easy drinking. More Please!
