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)

12 oz. Clear, deep copper-brown, with a lasting half inch of meringue. Big aromas of dark-roasted nut and earthy bittersweet chocolate. Flavor is the same, with some graham cracker and a hint of caramel apple. Nice finish of char and prickly green herb. Medium body is soft and smoothly carbonated, with a great balance between the caramely malt and the touch of hops and roast. Almost an old style English porter; excellent brown.

You knew it was a nut brown from the first swallow. A very definate session brew, clean and crisp

Bottle from Sean - thanks! Pours a clear, medium colored brown with a scattering of tan foam. Aroma has a nice roast quality followed by light tobacco and perhaps some minimal bitter hops. Taste is a very enjoyable mixture of roasted malt, tobacco, nuts, supporting bitterness from the hops, and the slightest tinge of malt sweetness after the finish. Excellent transition among the different components of the flavor. Mouthfeel is clean with some bite from the carbonation. This beer really impressed me with the focus and precision of the roast/tobacco character and the supporting hop bitterness. Excellent beer.

BBB63 (6045) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 21, 2003
Medium brown with average rocky off-white head. Fair lacing. Medium-bodied. Detected toasted malt, hazelnut, mild coffee, grass, raisin, and slight yeasty aromas. Well balanced between moderate sweetness and moderate bitterness. Oily texture, soft carbonation with a dry finish. A very well made American made brown ale.

PuckLSHS (101) - USA - APR 15, 2005
Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Chocolate, coffee and nice nutty flavors combine in a very balanced nature on the palate. Has a nice aftertast that lingers and urges you to continue on in your quest to finish. Creamy palate and very enjoyable. Nashville should be proud of this one.

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

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2003
Part of a sampler: Pours a dark brown color with a medium thin beige head. Thin lacing. Very nutty aroma. This beer is super easy to drink and has a nice nutty and hoppy flavor that keeps your interest. The finish is good and consists of brown sugar and more nuts. Good session beer.

Pours a really nice brown color with just hints of amber and a tan head. Aroma is nutty, caramel, a hint of chocolate, toast, roast, and some nice earthy hops. Flavor is malty, toasty, slightly nutty, biscuit, roasty, and a bitter earthy finish.
