3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours brown with ruby highlights and a short offwhite creamy head that laces some. Aromas of nuts and caramel, along with some earthy notes. Flavor is probably the nuttiest nutbrown ever. I get roasted peanuts, caramel, a little toffee, but really a lot of roasted nuts. Medium bodied, average carbonation, and a malty smooth finish. Good solid robust flavor in this one. Not bad at all.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear mahogany brown with a sizeable dry head. The aroma is definitely malty. A bit like sticking your head under a malt mill. Bit pale malt with a bit of nuttiness. A fairly big flavored brown.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a medium brown with a large tan head that left good lacing. The aroma was a bit malty with hints of nuts. The flavor is smooth, with bits of toffee, malts and a light hop finish. Decent version of a brown ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This draft brew poured a large foamy tan colored head of finely sized long lasting bubbles that left behind a transparent red brown colored uncarbonated body and a fair lacing. The aroma was nice with chocolate brown malty notes. The mouth feel was mildly tingly smooth and crisp with a milky brown malt flavor.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Brown with small, tan head. Nose of toasty malt and nuts. Flavor is the same with some generic macro chemical notes in the finish.Light/medium, balanced, easy drinking body. Completely unimpressive. How is this beer rated a 3.22 and the nearly flawless (as far as pilseners go) Scrimshaw I just rated only a 3.00? I’d just as soon drink Newcastle than another bottle of this.

Dark Brown with a good head. Not much aroma. Weak flavor and lacks hops in the finish. Undewhelming.

Draught at Radcliff, Kentucky Applebee’s. Dark brown pour, with off-white head. A bit of caramel and malt in the nose with a light malt flavor and a hint of hops in the finish. An OK beer, but nothing to write home about.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice mahogany body with a gray head. Unsalted peanut and caramel nose. Light toffee flavor with a woody well, nut flavor. A pleasant easy to drink beer with a dry light bitter finish.. something honey like to this. Goes well with spicy food.
