3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, dark brown/ruby...tan head.
Aroma is woody, caramel...
Taste is pleasantly nutty, a little chocolate, slightly sweet.
A little tingle of hop towards the end. Pretty average...but easily worth the 12$ for the 12-pack sampler.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 1/20
Large foamy fine long lasting tan head. Transparent typically carbonated cola brown. Weak nut brown malt aroma. Very nice nut brown malt flavor. Quaffable mild tingly start to finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle - pours clear brown with off-white head and nice lacing. Nose is caramel. Flavor is a tiny bit nutty and adds floral hops. taste is a little sweet and a bit more bitter. Body is medium and texture is watery.to thin. Medium finish that is almost dry. Again, good in flavor, but modest for the style.

An attractive orange brown fall color with thick head. Rocky thick head. Yeah it has a nutty smell and taste, with a bit of spice and the general lack of complexity that characterizes this style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is a dark brown and translucent with a large tan head. Aroma is malty with some roasted nuts. Flavor is the same. Starts out with some malts then comes a bit of roasted nuts. The body is a little thin, but it goes down easy and tastes decent.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark brown with about 2 fingers of rapidly diminishing white head. Not much there by way of aroma, a little caramel and maybe just a slight hint of pine. Taste is light sweet. Caramel with a little bit of hazelnut...maybe. Light bodied with a thin texture. Soft carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, it’s ok. As with most Dundee products, it’s a good intro to craft but nothing I would seek out.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Pours out a clear, dark garnet-hued body with a sensibly sized, ivory-hued head.
Smell: Sweetish, malty notes of semi-sweet chocolate, pale malts, toasted caramel, and the addition of hazelnut over a thin dried herb backdrop.
Taste: Pale malts, chocolaty malts, and caramel-tasting malts melding together, along with the dash of hazelnut flavoring, to give an overall nutty taste, as one might expect and rightfully demand given a cheeky squirrel on the front label. Lightly spicy, faintly floral hops with a low bitterness. Sweetish, still reasonably nutty on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Fairly smooth mouthfeel.
Overall: A pleasing nut brown ale; simple, but solidly structured. While it’s not quite a Rogue Hazelnut Nectar, the entire Dundee 12-pack mixer cost me only a few quarters more than a six-pack of Rogue’s.

Bottle from sampler pack pours a clear light brown with small white head and some lacing. Smells like caramel malts and hazelnut. Aroma is the same. Body is a little thin for my tastes. Pleasant nutty finsh. OK, but it’s a stretch to call this craft beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours mahogany with a thin nut colored head that didn’t stick around long. Smells a bit of roasted malt, but the aroma is a bit shallow and pedantic. Taste is of roasted malt, caramel and alcohol. Not bad, but not very impressive either.
