Smooth little brown ale, sweet and balanced. I was a little disappointed in this brown ale, I guess I was expecting more flavor. A simple session brew.

Pours a brown in color with a thinner, lingering, light beige head. The aroma has nuts and caramel, bread, and some floral impressions. Nothing to complex. The taste is a bit sweet and is heavy in caramel. It has some earthy malts, a little bit of nuttiness, and maple. Simple here, yet pretty good. Aftertaste is caramel. Medium in body, and chewy in texture. Average carbonation. This one isnít very special, but its alright.

Grabbed this bottle from a "create your own six pack section". Some aroma of sweet malt, but also an unusual aroma, almost like wet tobacco. No born on date on this bottle so canít confirm how old it was. Nice deep brown color, head is off white, holds well. Sweet roasty malt is the first taste. Has a metallic off taste that I quite canít pin point. Cereal like taste also. Finishes with a balanced bitterness and notes of dark chocolate. Will try again with a "for sure fresh sample".

This is a great nutbrown, and my favorite from WI brewers. Not overly complex, but it always has a fresh, clean taste. Taste and smell is malty, with little hop bitterness.

Definitely love Ale Asylum. This is a great change of pace for them. Dark, clear pour. Not nutty in aroma, but nutty & earthy in taste. Great cold weather choice!

Bottle. Pour is dark brown, with thin mocha head. Aroma is nutty and caramel. Taste is roasted malt, mild nuttiness, some caramel sweetness. Not as robust as wanted.
