2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a rich copper with a thick white head. It has a fruity, slightly malty aroma. The taste is of grape nuts/wheat berries and a slightly sweet maltiness. The mouthfeel is pretty watery, which is a little detracting.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Listed only as Nut Brown Ale, the color was deep ruby but the flavor gave only the barest hint of nuttiness. Perhaps a bit more Victory malt is called for. OK but nothing great.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2013 Pours a soda brown with a amber hue. Very little head even with an aggressive pour, and head completely disappeared within moments leaving no lacing whatsoever. Faint aroma of roasty hazelnut, malt, caramel and toffee. Very nice, but far too faint. Taste is very nutty up front. Not just hazelnut either, but a nice combo of several different nuts. Roasty malts, caramel and toffee come through very well, especially in the aftertaste. Palate is thin with a watery texture. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Overall a decent beer, but the palate and faint aroma really hurt it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown color with some ruby and dark orange highlights around the edges. Minimal head with an aggressive pour. Not much lacing left on the glass either. The head was of an off white, cream color. In the smell, I was picking up a decent amount of roasted malt, walnut, and hazelnut. Dry, leafy hints in the nose also. Breadiness. Doughy with notes of caramel on a subtle level. With the taste, I was again picking up the roasted, smokey, "nut" flavored malt. Touches of black coffee come through at the end and stick to the back of the throat. Not overpowering, but lasts long enough until the next sip. Medium mouthfeel that leans ever so slightly to the light/thin side. As I said, coats the throat somewhat, but doesn’t linger as long as one would expect. Somewhat crisp. Not as dry as I was anticipating. This is a decent little brown ale. Not the best, but definitely worth a try, in my opinion. Solid. I wouldn’t have a problem drinking a few of these. It seems that every Bluegrass Brewing Co. beer I have had lacks a bit with head and head retention however.

Bottle. Pours brown with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet and nutty. Flavor is slightly sweet and nutty, very malty. Pretty good, and might I add better than Kentucky Ale.

I enjoy this nut brown. The beer is very flavorful and bold. It is easy to drink, but comes off as fresh and alive.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 12 oz. bottle sent to me from a friend in TN. Aroma is sweet malty toast and a little floral hop. Color is a burnt brick red with a tiny off-white head. Flavor is very toasty with some slight chocolate/coffee roastyness and a lemony hop flavor. Finishes dry and clean, does not hang around much. A decent brown.
