    Sampled on 9/23/2010. This brown ale pours a medium brown color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, bready and sweet, slightly nutty. A light to medium bodied brown ale. The malts are caramel, bready, fruity and sweet. Some nuttiness as well. The hops are herbal. Nice carbonation. A touch of residual sweetness without being overly sweet. A little chocolate. A very drinkable brown ale. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

    This is one of the best browns I have had in years of drinking browns. Brown ales where my first favorite love when I started out on my journey of beer. How many of us out there drank newcastle early on in our quest?

    Well I say that this is far better than newcastle is. Smells of malt and nut and earth and sugar on the nose. Pours a brown with good tan head. Medium body with a velvet finish and balance carbonation. Flavor was nutty sweetness. some carmel, pine, roast malt tones and a bit of vanilla. Loved every second of this fine effort.. For the price it is now a staple in session beers for me.

    It pours a brownish/red with no head and no lace. Light and nutty aroma with some citrus. The mouthfeel is smooth and full-bodied. Flavors of roasty malts, nuts, some caramel, light hops and citrus, and mild spice. Good.

    Pours into my 25cl tulip glass with a frothy, one-finger thick, amber tinged, tan colored head. The beer is a dark red tinged, brown color that shows a brilliantly clear, cranberry-juice red color when held up to the light. The aroma is quite fruity with a backdrop of toasted malt and a light nuttiness. Bright berry and some sweet citrus notes are backed by an herbal, light pine hop character. The hop notes and fruit aromatics play the lead role in the aroma, but there is some malt character that comes in towards the finish with some lightly toasted, cracker like notes a light toasted nuttiness and even something that seems like musty malt.

    Lightly sweet tasting up front, this quickly moves to a mix of hoppy spruce tip flavors with notes of grapefruit, some bright berry notes and pine as well as a lightly astringent, herbal bitterness that lingers on in the finish. A touch of nutty toasted malt and some caramel sweetness comes through in the finish as well. The malt character does contribute quite a bit of body and heft; this is a bit viscous and definitely clings to the mouth a bit with some sticky malt character.

    Surprisingly hoppy, actually the malt clearly takes a back seat in this beer, which is a bit disappointing in a Nut Brown, but certainly doesn't keep this from being tasty. This is tasty, but it certainly could be quite a bit more complex if the hops were dialed back just a bit and the malt was more of an interesting focus.

    I had this beer at the brewery. The flavor was complex with primary brown malt and a nutty chocolate undertones. The hops were noticeable but mild. I really liked this specialty ale and would definitely have it again.
