SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 20, 2005
On tap at the Brewpub. Still called "Brown Cow." Dark brown in color with a beige head. Lacing is pretty good. Chocolately roasted aroma. Not very pronounced in the nut department. Bittering adds to a dry finish.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2005
On tap at the brewery, now called "Brown Cow." Deep translucent cherry walnut in color with some gray sheets for the head. Aroma is peat, barnyard, English toffee and ashtrays. Slick and nutty, predominantly drawing out pecans, tobacco and maple sweetness for flavoring. Dry finish and better than most of this brewery’s beers.

Festival tap: Light all around with a honey sweetness in the malt and a nuttiness in the finish. Clear amber, thin.

JPDIPSO (5673) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2004
Amber color with a smaller off-white head. Light nose of almonds and hint of herbal hops. LIght caramel malt with a touch of hops. Really not much more than an other american amber.

Style note - I’m pretty sure they said this was a nut brown alt, although I’ve never head of one.
Light amber body, minimal carbonation. Yeasty, caramelly aroma (reminds me of a kaiser roll). More of the same in the flavor, sweet yeasty breadiness with a light walnut accent. Good variation on the style!

muzzlehatch (4837) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Very light, very sweet nose, closer to pecan or walnut than hazelnut in both flavor and nose -- ehh who am I kidding there really ain't enough "flavor" or "nose" to speak of, I'm mostly grasping at straws. Gutless.
