Random dark beer with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma is slight and neutral. Heart of the beer is a lingering odd bitterness. Malt is thin but decent. Little to critique, just and ordinary brown. Def. harsh, nothing worth going on about.

Bottle thanks to scotchzi! Pours a translucent brown with thin tab lacy head that doesnít really stick. Aroma of typical nut brown, toasted barley, nutty earth, slight toffee and coffee. Taste follows, smooth and pretty solid for what it is.

12oz bottle pours a transparent, mahogany brown with some creamy, lacing white head. Nose is decent, crackers, brown sugar, lightly toasted bread, biscuit, a little toasted almond. Flavor is solid, a little raisin, brown sugar, biscuit, a touch of light coffee, bread crust, chewy grains. Medium bodied, dry, malty finish. Solid brown ale.

Draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear red-brown color with a creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel, toffee, apples, nuts, other fruit notes. The taste is toffee, spicy hops. nutty notes. Medium bodied.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark brownish black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of sour fruits, some cardboard, hints of oak, vanilla, red fruit, touch of chocolate powder. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, vanilla, hints of oak, slight cardboard, hints of grass and earth, finishing sweet. Eh.

mensch (289) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Itís awfully brown. Weak woody and mineral aroma. Thin, acidic on the palate. A few enjoyable malt notes, nutmeg and brown sugar. Not impressed, but hey, it sure is brown.

Deep brown. White lacy head. Medium body amd brown malt flavor. Balanced well, not too malty or nutty. Cool on the palate. Good session brown that finishes with a nice little refreshing bitterness.

Full Sail Nut Brown Ale has a thick, off-white head and a clear, somewhat bubbly, red-brown appearance, with a little bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is faint, but the drinker can pick up some subtle brown bread crust and sweetness, however, there really isnít a lot there. Taste is of the same, with some sweetness an acceptable bitterness, and maybe some brown bread crust. Mouthfeel is light and watery (like lager), and Full Sail Nut Brown Ale finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and rather boring. Oh, itís a very good beer, but for the price, one could do better with Icehouse, for instance, a beer that has a fuller, bolder presentation. Another example of a craft beer that makes the case for macro-lager. RJT

Out of the bottle we see a medium brown-colored ale, quite distinct because it lacks any ruby or reddish undertones. Clear. Head is 1 shade past off-white, is rocky, and lingers. Aroma has distinct brown malt notes, nutty, lightly toasty, dusty, savory, woody, forest, hinting at cocoa but not roasted or burnt. Tastes spot-on to what an American Brown Ale should taste like. Balanced sweetness with a dry nuttiness. Carbonation gives it a clean finish with a slightly nutty aftertaste. A fine example of the style.

Dark brown, clear, beige head. Light aroma of nutty, biscuity malt. Flavor is nutty, chocolate, grainy finish. Clean.
