3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer is an auburn color with a prominent white head, and the aroma is nutty with a hint of caramel alongside the yeast undertones. The taste is mildly umami and mildly sweet, and the palate of the beer combines a light-medium body, a thin texture, soft carbonation, and an abrupt finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark amber with a slowly diminishing head. Aroma dominated by malts as expected. Very smooth and flavorful. The hazelnut really comes through in the flavor. A nice fall ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a deep brown with a thick beige head. Fizzy. Aroma is similar to other brown ales, bit of caramel malt and a touch of hops. Light bodied and smooth. A bit of hazelnut. Not bad, but not much here to recommend.

Mildly intriguing aroma and a thin brown pour leads to a mild taste and basic mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into one of my Newcastle Geordie Schooner glasses. Mahogany brown color with a generoud tan head. Aroma is hazelnut and some earthy malt. Flavor is a bit one dimensional, but nutty with a nice level of hazelnut character. Many hazelnut browns seem to overwhelm with the hazelnut flavor, but this strikes a nice balance. Fairly smooth mouthfeel with a slightly dry finish. I rarely see any Dundee beer in my area, so I probably won’t be drinking it again, but its a decent run-of-the-mill brown.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A brown ale with an off white head. The beer tastes like a brazilian nut coffee with just a hint of hazelnut perhaps in the background. Finishes clean

Bottle. One of the bottles from their Seasonal variety pack (though I don’t believe this one in particular is seasonal for them, but couldn’t say for sure). Has a nutty, caramel aroma - not too strong. Taste is similar with some chocolate in there as well. Slightly hoppy finish. Pretty mellow taste, definitely a decent beer. Dundee always has solid beers for a low price, gotta respect em for that! 5.3% alcohol.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a very clear very light brown with about a finger of head. Oats and toffee in the odor. Tastes different than I’d expect from the nose. Very watery with a little bit of bitterness that goes into a slightly almost skunky aftertaste. It’s not bad for how cheap it is, but not worth recommending.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear super dark amber with a medium tan head. Nose of toffee, malt, some hops. Decent mouthfeel, flavors of brown sugar and hops. Overall, not too bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle. Pours a clear, brown with a one finger, off-white head that thins to a film but leaves a layer of lacing.
Aroma has notes of bread and caramel mixed with a touch of fruit and a hint of chocolate and spice.
Taste is malty but balanced. Hints of caramel and bread balanced with bitter with a short finish.
Medium body and carbonation. Fairly crisp in the mouth with a smooth, easy drinking finish.
Overall this is an easy drinking and enjoy beer. Enough flavour for most without being offputting to the non-beergeek out there. I would drink this again but probably wouldn’t search it out. Just too many other things to try.
