COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This nutbrown alte is velvety smooth with a rich caramel aroma. We blend seven different malts for just the right touch of sweetness and a creamy finish worth craving.

TomDecapolis (4394) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - SEP 15, 2008
Thanks to hopdog for this bottle from WI. Pours a hazy brown with orange/golden notes and a medium creamy tan head that left some lacing. Aroma of caramel, nuts, toasted malt, brown sugar, light citrus notes, toffee and lightly floral. Flavor of nuts, toffee, caramel, toasted malt, chocolate notes, pine, light citrus, dark fruits and brown sugar.

BBB63 (5743) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2008
Bottle and served in pint glass: Deep amber brownish hue with a moderate creamy off-white head and good lace. The aroma has notes of walnuts, caramel, toast, sugar, light raisins, and an herbal vapour. The taste is rather straight forward malty sweetness and hint of nutty background. There is a hint of bitters towards the finish but there is also a hint of butterscotch as well. The mouth feel is smooth and medium-bodied. Honestly a forgettable brew, standard stuff.

twindadplus2 (576) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2008
Slightly hazy dark brown with a creamy, light brown head. Nutty, roasted malt and toasted grain aromas with a whiff of hops. Flavor of sweet, roasted malt, candied nuts and a touch of hops bitterness at the end. Nice tingle of carbonation and a nice creamy palate.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2008 Bottle, dimple mug. Pours a hazy red-brown, with scant pale creamy head. Bold toasty malt aromas, notes of apple blossom, also a deep earthiness. Not at all viscous, but a vigorous effervescence on the tongue displaces any feelings of wateriness. Initial impessions of barley, caramel, and bright coffee, followed bitterness (hops, raw peanuts), touch of a musty musty element. Smooth finish, hazelnut coffee, caramel mouthfeel. A bit lacking in harmony among the parts, but really a flavorful brew.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2008
A cloudy, dark, reddish amber body is topped by a small cap of cream colored foam. Wet, sudsy lacing leaves minimal spotting behind. The aroma is nice, showing brown sugar, candied pecans, caramel, vanilla, and even hints of golden raison. Some perfumy, floral hops add a touch of bite to the nose. Flavors are smooth and well integrated, pecan and brown sugar working together nicely. There’s a lactic creaminess to this, as well a mild, earthy hop finish. Sweet, but not too sweet. Nice balance. The palate is a little on the light side, but very well carbonated and easy to drink. Overall, this is a nice little nut brown.

Grinder (6) - Columbus, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2008 does not count
I totally love this beer. It has a hint of chocolate in it with nutty/malty over tones. Very smooth with a tiny bit of hops on the end. it is one of my favorite Brown Ales

MaltOne (182) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2008
Started out thin but it got better. Aroma was roasted toffee. Pours a light red-brown. First flavor is dry that evolves to a sweeter finish. Good malty Brown

ketchepillar (1026) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 27, 2008
I thought it was pretty nutty and malty, but not sweet though. Maybe some hazelnut. Malt was kinda dirty though. Mouthfeel was pretty thick but slightly sticky with bad carbonation.
