On draught at Alpine. Pours a clear deep copper color with a khaki head. Aroma is light nuts, biscuit and some citrus. Taste is sweet with some richness from the hazelnuts. Thin with some carbonation. OK.

Poured up on tap at the Alpine brewpub where it has a clear amber body with copper edges and supporting an off white head. The aroma is a little nutty with mild floral like hoppiness around the edges. The taste delivers some caramel malts, slightly roasted malts and near sweet nuttiness. Behind the malts I get slivers of spicy to floral hop bitterness.

Taster at the brewpub. Pours a copper-gold color with a small white head that soon recedes to a fine film. The aroma is mild with sweet bread, and possibly some faint nuttiness. The flavor is overtly sweet, with candied nuts and bready malts. The palate is light but appropriate. Finishes short and sweet. Overall: Not really thrilled by this one, but it goes down easy and I wont hesitate to order another one someday.

Clear dark yellow with a fizzy white head. Malt and barley aroma and a sweet fruity taste with light candy notes and a silky mouth feel.

JohnnyJ (5419) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Draft at PP Carlsbad. Clear amber pour, with an off white head. Sweetness, caramel malt, lightly toasty, definite nuts in the flavor - hazelnuts, light chocolate, and some earthy hops. Im not a big fan of the style, but this was pretty good. Medium in mouthful and flavor.

Terminus (3596) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 12, 2011
tap at brewpub-pours copper huge with a small soapy white head. nose of carmal lite cashews, toasted grains and husky notes. flavors of lightly bitter nuts, grains and light hops (earthy). lite body with a very good mouthfeal (slick and slightly astringent) decent and a cool twist on this overly done style.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Tasted at the brewery on a toasty saturday afternoon. Amber red in color with some modest head. Nice malt flavors with some subdued hops in the background. Medium in body and easy on the palate. A bit of the nutty filbert flavor present but not overpowering by any means. Pretty easy to drink. Not bad.

48FanInCali (848) - California, USA - JUN 24, 2011
On tap at Alpine Brewpub. Pour is a dark reddish amber with a fairly thin head that clings very nicely. Chose is mostly bready malts and yeast. Maybe a very faint Hazelnut. Taste follows the nose and very smooth and sessionable. No hazelnut on the taste. Certainly will not confuse this for Nutella. Very good beer on it’s own even if it wasn’t what I expected

Clear amber with a perfect creamy off-white head. Loads of fresh hazelnut, vanilla, coffee, and a hint of chocolate in the nose. Could smell this one all day! Rich flavors of all of the above, but a slight hint of hops offers balance to keep it from being sweet. Full-bodied, very creamy, soft carbonation, lengthy nutella (chocolate & hazelnut) finish. Great stuff. It veers off the typical California hop path which makes it that much more fun to try. Thanks again Scotty V!
