From a twelve ounce bottle purchased at the Glenway Crossing IGA - This one pours a fizzy, dark brown liquid with a malty aroma and a lasting tan head of foam. Tastewise, it’s a bit light on body for a brown ale, but it is good!

RIP I'll give it a rate 'cause I drank the beer and have the notes. On Tap at an airport. I asked for a description of their offerings and got the "this one's a lager, this one's a Pilsner" stuff from the server. When I told him Pilsners were lagers he agreed that they were both made with bottom fermenting yeast. So I don't know if he knew what he was talking about or not! Anyway it was a decent but uninspiring brown ale. And in an airport any thing is better than a Bud light with cigarette smoke. Just an average brown ale nevertheless.

Hands down the worst beer I have ever had. Not bad in the standard way, no flavor watery and fizzy. No bad in a whole new what the heck did I drink mish-mash of sweetness and sourness and bizzare malt. Legendary. Avoid at all costs. You have been warned.

Decent malty ale, description of this beer fits it perfectly, I also prefer Samuel Smiths. Then again SS makes a lot of good ones. I just wish that Oldenberg’s restaurant was still open here in Louisville, it went from being voted #1 new restaurant in 1999 to closing a few years later, We had some good times there.

Not a bad brown, nutty malt nose, nutty taste.

No Sam Smith Nut Brown Ale but a pretty good substitute for the price.

A very nutty ale; hints of walnuts. Good malt and hop balance. A great beer.
