Bottle. Pours, imagine that, brown with thin beige head. Aroma is roasted malts and a certain nuttiness. Sweet on he front end and somewhat bitter in the aftertaste department. Nothing stellar, but tasty nonetheless. Wouldnít have another.

Pours a medium bright brown color. There isnít much head and it is a bright white. This beer smells a little sweet and almost fruity. Not a lot on the nose. It tastes of chocolate and coffee with a bit of a malty/nutty aftertaste. Light bodied, drinkable, just not much flavor. I guess I am getting used to the "American" style Brown Ales.

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.

Brown in color with a thin white head that stays. An almost astringent nutty aroma? Like burnt wood. An average nutty, roasty flavor. They did a great job on getting that "english ale" flavor in there. Itís also watery, like many english ales. A good beer. Definitely not insulting to the palate.

12oz bottle. I like Nut Brown ales so I enjoyed this beer but I was disappointed. It was a little thin in color and in flavor/palate. There was not enough malt sweetness/nuttiness.

Iím really not a fan of this style, poured a medium brown color with a thin white head which quickly faded away. Aroma was a mix of caramel and nuts. Flavor seemed one-demntional, an almost walnut flavor, with some barley noticable caramel notes. Hops were very mild.

The middle point of my seven-flight sampler and these beers donít get much better, kind of devoid of character. Hazy brown with a thin head. Light roasted malt aroma. Taste of burnt malts, mild nuttiness and once again, bland. Finishes bitter.

Average brown ale. Brown color and small tan head. Medium body. Caramel malts make up most of the flavor. Light to medium body.
