Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2002
This beer poured a dark reddish amber color and formed a light tan head that subsided quickly and left some lace. It had an aroma of hops, caramel and malt. The flavor was of malt and caramel. The finish was medium, slightly creamy with a defininate caramel aftertaste. Not as good as some of their others, but still a good beer.

A light bodied brown ale. Has a caramel colored look. OK aroma with a sweet-syrupy smell. Thin on the palate, but there is a definite roasted/smoked flavor lurking in there. Nothing amazing about this beer, but easy to drink.

A sweet brown ale. Too sweet. Nothing special.

Nice nose. The aftertaste reminds me of vodka, something Iím not sure I like, after those Russian class picnics in college ...

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUN 5, 2002
Big head, quite dark with only a trace of light coming through. Nice candylike taste, sweet, hints of roastiness in the nose that seem to disappear soon after the pour. Best brew of theirs that Iíve had.

Just beaten by Newcastle (by a nose). Otherwise, a decent inoffensive brown. This underachieving brewery has found its best beer.

Rather delicate for a brown ale - very pretty with good healthy color and fine lacing, but the mild nuttiness doesnít get all the way there.

this is the first nut brown ale that i have ever had so i donít have much of a basis for comparison. however the only differice that i found between this and any other brown ale that iíve had is the appearance, which is much darker and virtual opague

Sorry, this one just couldnít cut it with me as a ígreatí brown ale. Not really a lot to say. It comes off as way too thin and watery, almost like a macro, and whatever dominant ítasteí to it was metallic in character. Next to no aroma to speak of, though the appearance is a really pleasing opaque brown. Who knows, the six-pack I bought (based on the reputation it was getting on this site) may have been sitting out in too much light for too long. But itís quite the disappointment. This is just way too far off from Rogueís Hazelnut Brown to be worth only 3/10 of a pointís difference. If you want a top-notch Brown, go for Rogue. (Wish I can say Iíve tried the Boyne River....) If you donít believe me, put them in a back-to-back test and I donít see how they can compare. The Rogue is one of my top-10 favorites and truly first rate; this is just . . . average.

I really donít like nut brown ales, and this was no exception. A decent balance of hop and malt flavors, and goes down smoothly, just not a very appealing taste to me.
