COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A very small amount of a very dark roasted malt gives our Nut Brown its rich brown color. Although the color is dark, this is not a heavy bodied beer like our Stout. The Nut Brown has a nice clean aftertaste that allows it to be matched with most foods. It is a very well rounded drinkable beer.

Pours a three-fingered bubbly head, fades slowly and leaves a good lace. High carbonation and medium bodied. Cloudy amber color. Nose is cidery. Starts and finishes with a sour cider flavor, not my idea of a brown, it may be off. No expiration date. $1.69 for a 12oz bottle from Super 7-Even Raleigh, NC.

On tap at location. Nice nutty roasted malts without too much depth. This was very nice and easy-drinking but the mouthfeel was a little thin.

Dark hazlenut/amber in color. hin, tight white head. Earthy and a bit nutty in the nose. malts certainly prevail. Very lively palate and a rich creamy, nutty, full finish. Since the brewmaster uses strictly German style brewing with imported malts and hops from Germany and the Chech Rep. It's not a beer intended to be remarkable in flavor, but consistent and very drinkable. Cleans up well too.

No head to speak of, thin flavor with no apparent aftertaste. Nice chesnut color. Easy to drink, but no real discernible taste. Not the best this place has to offer.

One of the poorest excuses of a nut brown I have ever had. Weak flavor, no maltiness, no hops. As my girlfriend said ’A beer that is only good for getting drunk.’ ReRate: After one more at a party, I say it still sucks, but not quite as much. the flavor didn’t nearly taste as bad and disconnected this time. I guess the consistency is a problem for this one.....

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2004 Upon its release from the 12-ounce brown bottle the beer sets in the glass deep amber to brown color with a modest frothy light tan head that erodes quickly leaving a thin veil of lace upon the glass. Nose has a nice nutty sweetness, fresh and clean to the senses, with the start sweet and the grain profile adequate, the top light in feel. Finish is modestly acidic and the hops a little light for my taste, aftertaste dry and a decent brown ale.
