COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our most popular brewmaster special brought back by overwhelming requests. A classic British nut brown ale. Full bodied, complex and interesting yet mild in flavor. Our interpretation of this style has distinctive hop aroma and flavor. (O.G.-1.052, IBUs 23)

In the bottle. Thanks to Springslicker for the beer trade. Reddish brown in color. Poor head retention. Off white head color. Caramel and molasses aroma. No discernable nut aroma to me. Something of a fruity berry flavor. The finishing flavor has a little nut character. Good malt content throughout. An enjoyable beer in a style that I usually don’t care much about.

bu11zeye (11942) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 22, 2005
(Bottle, courtesy of Sledge Jr) Pours a dark mahogany body with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of toasted malt, raisin, and grass. Flavor of malt, cocoa, caramel, and a bit of fruit with a dry finish.

JazzyJonas (11) - USA - NOV 8, 2005
Faint hop aroma with almost no hop flavor. Not a problem since it has a sweet, malty, almost creamy/nutty flavor (no, not like peanut butter). Looks gorgeous. Pours a deep, raspberry red with small white head. Nice medium-light, smooth mouthfeel with a clean, quick finish. A mild, inviting beer that most people would enjoy.

Light-bodied, slightly sweet with an hazelnut character. Slightly watery to me.

hopdog (8933) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2005
Bottle acquired in trade with SpringsLicker (thanks!). Poured a deep and slightly cloudy brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, nuts, chocolate, and toasted malts. Tastes of chocolate, nuts, and caramel. Has a sweetness to it.

NachlamSie (2764) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2005
bottle. Pours a full brown with no real head. The aroma is pretty yeasty with a hint of raisins. The flavor is much more impressive: an excellent blend of sweet caramel and toasted nuts with enough body to make this brown satisfying. Not bad at all.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Growler from the brewpub. Pours dark brownish amber with quickly dissipating head. Malty aroma with hints of chocolate. The flavor has apparent nuttiness, caramel malts, and a touch of roastiness. Most drinkable, this.

SpringsLicker (3132) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 13, 2005
Dark, ruby tinted brew with a frothy light mocha head. Sweet malt aroma. Slightly sweet but lacking in fullness of body and depth of flavor to go World Class.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2005
Clear, bright reddish-brown body with substantial carbonation and a nice, creamy head with decent retention. Aroma of caramel, mild dark fruit, a note of warm diacetyl, and hints of veggies and vague earthy hops. Medium-high sweet fruit and caramel flavors with a hint of tobacco and creamy nuttiness. Building hop character with some toasty grain and hop bitterness. Fairly clean and well-rounded. Medium body with palatable sweetness and a creamy texture. Solid brown ale, but could benefit from more attenuation. I bet this has a strong following among non beer geeks. Thanks SpringsLicker.

mnurda (1129) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 15, 2005
A very nice brown when poured into the glass. On the lighter side of Medium carbonation. Forgot to smell it though (so gave it a 5). Very pleasant on the palate. Nice with cheese and crackers.
