Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, fully diminishing. Body is
dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, nutty, light bread),
lightly hoppy (flowers, resin). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly
acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, lightly
acidic. Medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Rather syrupy
sweet, but otherwise inoffensive.

This was probably one of the nuttiest tasting beers I’ve ever had. Very malty and sweet up front and finishing with just a slight hoppiness. Balance was definitely tilted towards the malty side though. Not too bad, but I couldn’t drink alot of this.

Darker copper-red color. Average carbonation/head. Vaguely Brown-like malty aroma. Slight caramelly sweetness, again some nutty Brown-like flavors involved here. Tastes like a cross between an American Brown and an Altbier. Finish is fairly crisp, with a slight amount of bitterness. Not a bad beer, just not too special.

Hmm. Very toasty flavored. Too much nut flavor. Tastes like drinking a pile of leaves.
