COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deep, bold nut brown ale beautifully balanced with rich dark malts and a complex hop character converging to reveal a simply enchanting elixir.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 8, 2003
(Brewed in NY) A deep ruby brown brew that is a little on the dark side for an American Brown. Thin lasting whitehead that is light brown in color. The nose is mainly malty with aromas of chocolate malt and crystal malt. The finish is a little on the weak side, but not offensive. American Brown Ales are a style that I really enjoy. However, I find this example to be lacking the complexities it needs to make it to the next level.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 1, 2003
Deep ruby brown hue. Light burnt grain, sweet nose. Smal sticky light tan head. Caramel, nutty, sweet, medium bodied, finishing with faint hops in the distance. Nothing special here...

Ernest (6749) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2012 Bottle (recent batch with the "Nut Brown Ale" name). Head is initially small, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain/nuts, caramel), lightly hoppy (grapefruit, resin), with a light note of vanilla. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Not a fan, mainly due to the sourness. Aroma is ok, nothing special. All in all a pretty average beer.

sfontain (845) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2004
Pours a garnet color with a smallish beige/tan head. Aroma is mostly of dark malt with a touch of roastiness. Flavor is malty with a tiny bit of hops in the finish, but, overall, fairly nondescript. Palate is fairly thin but not terribly watery. I was expecting this to be horrid and offensive, but it wasn't. It's just lacking, that's all.

Aroma is light, caramel, brown sugar, chocolate. The color is much like coffee, the head is thin and full. Taste has hints of metal, chocolate, coffee, caramel, banana

snook91901 (34) - USA - MAR 28, 2008
The aroma was by far the best aspect of this beer: very malty and rich with almost no hop boquet. The beer pours a dark brown with a small very short lived head. The flavor is the worst aspect. It tastes a lot like my first homebrew. The strong malts cannot compete with the off tasting yeast characteristics. Acidic aftertaste.

mansquito (4209) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 10, 2008
I drank a bunch of these beers. It looks like a nice brown ale and tastes and smells like a nice brown ale, but that is all. Good brown ale to chug, but not much good for anything else. Mostly just a gimmick brew.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - APR 18, 2008
Dark amber with an off-white head. Nice nutty, malty aroma. Flavor is malty with a touch of smoke. A little on the thin side. Not what I expected from Hebrew ... a bit of a disappointment. An okay beer, I guess.

Bottle. Dark deep brown with a thin off-white head. Malty aroma with some bread. Flavor is mild to be called "bold". Mudled, not bad but not great.
