Lubiere (9790) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2010 A clear brown ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, raising bread and herbal malts (glass was too warm, so more fruity esters were being ejected from the glass.) In mouth, a good nutty malt, oily mouthfeel, nice and smooth. On tap at brewpub, Feb. 26 2010.

Sampled this on tap at the Shirlington location. Pours a translucent, caramel brown with a frothy, slightly beige head. Aroma was a definite let down, some slight nuttiness, some light caramel and thatís pretty much it. Flavors were the same and fairly neutral, some sweet caramel malts, nuts, some dark breads. Finish has some lasting sweetness, kinda watery. Below average.

Capitol Hill location. Roasty, sweet flavors. Malty. It certainly isnít their greatest beer, but I thought it was better than many Iíve had elsewhere.

Had this on draft at the Capitol City Capitol Hill location on September 5th, 2005. Brown bodied, obviously, with a small tan head. Nose is malty and nutty. Semi-sweet choco-like notes as well. Taste is toasty and sweet with lots of malts, mild hops, and raw nuts. Body is medium with a mild carbonation feel. Finishes a bit toasty with more nuttiness and sweet malts.

Nut brown? Geez, just about every beer I tried here looked somewhere between copper red and brown - very little difference in the colors. Some sweet nuttines here, followed by a very weak finish. Moslty bland, but not actively bad.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2004
Tap@Capitol City, DC. Very sweet, hazelnut syrup at the start. And the flavour continues throughout the beer. Just like Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar, i thought this was a bit odd, sweet cloying sort of stuff.

the "bonus" beer. A very, very light brown. A little too watery for my taste.
