861. John Harvard's Toasted Brown Ale

I spent way too much time waiting in line for an iPhone (I'm a consumer whore!) on Thursday July 17th. After finishing up some lab work, Jadyn and I went to John Harvard's to have some beer. I decided on the Toasted Brown Ale, which sounded nice. Now that I have a decent camera on my phone I'm hoping the number of photos for the blog will increase.

Pours a clear, dark brown with ruby tints. Topped by a thick, fluffy, light-brown head that fades to a continuous film leaving nice lace. Toasty, bready, roasty and chocolate note make up much of the aroma.

Toasted malts upfront, bready with a hint of sweetness. Caramel and chocolate in the center with a hint of fruit. The finish is a lightly bitter, roasty character. Light-bodied, moderately carbonated with a smooth finish.

This was tasty and well balanced, definitely a good session beer.
