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)

Draft at Barley’s Knoxville. Pours brown with a half inch of khaki foam that doesn’t leave any lacing. Not a lot on the nose. Notes of toffee and nuts on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid example of style.

phaleslu (6606) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2012
12 oz. bottle from jbrana- thanks again, Justin! Pours a deep brown-amber color with a small beige head that settles into a ring and film. Aroma of toasted malts, nuts, brown sugar, caramel, and chocolate. Flavor of nuts, tea, toasted malts, wet tobacco leaves, and a hint of apple. Light-medium bodied, with a toasty, leafy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Good brown.

rangerred (936) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JUN 9, 2012
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear dark brown with a one finger tan head. Aroma of caramel, coffee, cocoa, along with some toasted malt. Really a nice roasty character with this beer. The roasted characteristics continue into the taste. Some cocoa and coffee up front with caramel in the background. Toasted malt and maybe a little pipe tobacco. A light bitterness emerges towards the finish with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall, a run of the mill brown ale that doesn’t really stand out from the pack. Although it is fairly refreshing and a local brew that I would probably get again sometime.

A pretty nutty aroma; brown color. Decent. Some maltiness, sweet and a bit sticky but not too bad. Finishes too sweet for me.

weitz15 (382) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 8, 2012
Almost no aroma, off-white head, light roasted flavor with a dry, lightly carbonated finish. A little generic if you ask me.

Clear red brown color with thin white lacing. A lot of roasted nuts on the aroma. Smooth and creamy mid palate with a nicely sweetened finish. Great example of a nut brown.
