Excellent Beer. Prominent nut brown flavour, but not overwhelming. Good balance, texture and colour. One of my favourites.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
474 ml can (5% alc.) pours a clear amber color with an off-white thin head and no lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel malt and light roasted grains with hint of chocolate. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with just a hint of roasted grain bitterness. No presence of hops. Light bodied with a light carbonation. Nothing really special.

Itís nutty. Itís brown. It fits the descriptors. A very nice, smooth mouthfeel. Caramel sweetness, though with a metallic aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml can - Poors a clear dark brown with red hues and a small thin light brown head. Aromas of green bananas, caramelised malts, caramel, hazelnuts and an earthy finish. Lack of balance in this brew... Fad and watered down a bit. Flavors are very metallic and can i say it also tastes like fish... very awkward flavors and mouthfeel...

pours a relatively medium dark brown with a nice beige head, some retention and lacing. nutty, fruity caramel, grassiness, fresh toasted and lightly roasted cereals. straightforward - slightly watery, almost aggressive carbonation, somewhat decent grassy-herbal finish. o-k.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
473ml can. Dark brown orange beer (Lovibond 25/26). Small head.. Wait, nope. Make that meniscus lace. Aroma of metal and medicine. Tastes kind of bland until you swallow it - strange aftertaste. Not sweet and not bitter, but persistent chemical taste after swallowing. Mediocre palate and medium carbonation.

Just makes it to a 2 finger head. Soapish. Smells kinda like meat kinda buts not a smoked beer. Anywyas itís a bit waterish kinda tasteing like a cherry cola but different then how a cherry cola really taste. After a while the chocolate and mabye caramel I taste gets stronger but other dark beers show is more cus the tade water/cola aspect to it mutes it a little. heavy bodied. Not best dark beer ever but not worst & am a dark beer fan cheers!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I remember loving this six or seven years ago. After spending some time in England, I still have a soft spot for it. One of my favourite styles, so here we go... Nice and nutty in aroma, colour and taste (hence the name I suppose). Dryish. The lacing could be better. The best Iíve tried so far from this brewer. I guess itís a little plain but if you like the nut browns itís got all you need and more.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Originally rated May 2005. This is Amsterdamís competition brew to KLB Nut Brown (both brewed in Ontario - before Amsterdam bought out KLB). This one poured a dark brown colour with a tanned head and decent retention. The lacing was not much and the carbonation was heavy. Had roasted malt scents. The taste was bitter and roasted with a smooth drier aftertaste. The nut was also pronounced. Full mouthfeel. Not a bad beer, but very close to the Kawartha Lakes Brewery one.
