COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beautiful deep brown hue and a nutty sweetness identify this style of ale from Northern England. Although malt and caramel flavor dominate, hops provide a medium level of bitterness at the finish.

I had the Alt before I had this don’t make that mistake. This beer was a nice amber pour with light lacing. It had a sweetish maltiness with a light bitter finish. A very well balanced beer. A nice beer that was just a tad on the watery side. Overall a damn fine brew. I wish I could make one like it.

NachlamSie (2764) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2006 on draught under the alias "Woodruff Brown" . Light tan/brown pour. Nutty, sugary aroma with some acidity. There’s a sweet walnut taste and an astrigency of nut shells. There’s a bit of breadiness throughout. This is fairly thin for a brown and not balanced too well.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2004
A nice clear brown beer with a slight to invisible head. Slight aroma of nutty malt. Fine taste of chestnuts and biscuits, with a bit of roasted flavor. Fine but lacks a bit of body.

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2003
Draft at Downtown Grill & Brewery in Knoxville, TN. A small sized tan head with fine-small sized bubbles that were mostly diminishing. The body of this beer was uncarbonated and transparent with a reddish-brown hue. The nose was sweet and malty. The flavor was caramel and malt with a bit of an aftertaste to it. The mouthfeel was very, very smooth and slightly thin. This was a medium bodied beer with good lacing.

TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 136. This draft brew was sampled at the Brew Pub in Knoxville Tennessee and served by an attentive staff that included the Owner, the bar manager, Daniel Goss, and the assistant brewer Joey Barbarito. This brew poured a head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a transparent uncarbonated brown colored body and a good lace. The aroma malty nutty sweet mild and nice. The flavor was that of a very nice caramel brown malt that disappeared quickly but was nice while it lasted. The mouthfeel was smooth sweetly malted and had no bite. I like this brew a lot and it was very nice. So nice that the bar manager brought me a second glass for free! Thanks Dan!
