No Tasting Notes:
The roast is a bit restrained for your typical American Brown Ale.
Took first place in the American Brown Ale/American Amber Ale Category at the New Jersey State Fair.
Biggest complaint were a bit too estery, most likely from the Thames II, and overly carbonated which I don't get. Carbed to 2.5 volumes and the BJCP states that American Brown Ales are moderate to moderate high carbonation.
This was a great beer, nice balance and moderate roast. Flavors of brown bread, and pretzels. Hops flavors were a bit muted but had herbal, spicy notes with some cinnamon and nutmeg aromas.
I will be brewing this again with 1/4lb of chocolate and a slightly different hop profile.
