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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from craft winter mix pack. Used my Newcastle glass. Great eye appeal on this one. Thick, full, frothy white head that laced the glass in sheets. Steady carbonation. Has a nutty, caramel aroma. Taste is similar with weak hazelnut as the main flavor. Light hop in the finish. Nothing here is going to impress too much but, it is a decent drinkable brown ale.

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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled, as a part of a fall sampler pack. Moderately dark brown in color with a slight orange tint. Large, light-tan head is mostly lasting. Moderately malty nose with lightly toasty hazelnut with some slightly sour bready/yeastiness. Flavor is very mildly sweet, mildly-to-moderately sour and heavy on wheat bread and some copper metallics. Stale bread finish is slightly sour and mildly bitter. As an aside, we used a bottle of this to make Beer-Pretzel Caramels (from Food Network magazine, Google it) that turned out very tasty.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It pours dark amber with excellent clarity and a small but lingering head. The aroma is average to above average with malts, nuts, and sugar. The body falls in the thin to medium range. The taste is also average to above average for the Nut Brown style with a slightly more presumptuous bitter bite on the tail end. Not a bad beer on the whole.

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.
