3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 ounce can - $3.50 at Tasty Beverage Co. in Asheville, North Carolina.
Appearance: Pours a hazed medium-to-dark brown body with a smallish, thin, ecru head. Lightly laced on the descent.
Smell: Softly sweet-smelling nose of moistened malted barley grains with a toasty bent to em, a little fruitiness akin to strawberry, with the hops registering as a bit subtle and subdued.
Taste: A taste of toasted breadcrust and biscuit with some crumbled brown sugar cookies and a bit of nutty-tasting caramel candy. Moderate sweetness. A firm vein of fruitiness running throughout. Leafy, herbal hops impart some bitterness, though it remains predominately sweet. Finishes malty (nutty) and still rather fruity with some lingering sweetness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: A sweet-leaning brown that, like its moniker, is a bit nutty.
