I visit a lot of breweries and I have a problem leaving any brewery empty handed. While visiting From the Barrel in Londonderry, NH I sampled 6 different beers some of which were very good. Remedy and Lily standout as two that were very good, unfortunately they only had two beers available for growler fills and neither one of those were included so I ended up taking home Nautical Mile home with me.
Nautical Mile pours a very clean light orange with almost no head. Aroma was minimal with some light tropical notes but not much happening overall. Taste is nice to start but quickly heads in the wrong direction with a sharp and unpleasant aftertaste. This was one of three pale ales that was available when I visited the brewery.
I didn’t finish this beer or the growler and wish that I was able to bring home a growler of Remedy or Lily instead of Nautical Mile. Give this brewery a chance but don’t bring home a bad beer.
