A delicious nut brown ale with wonderful malt flavors. Good balance of chocolate, caramel sweetness and a modest nutty flavor up front. Some dark toast and slight hop profile in the background.

Aroma: bread and grain malts, some caramel and chocolate. Appearance: dark brown, medium, creamy, beige head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: intense toasted malts, some bread and grain too, light chocolate, soft carbonation, lightly dry finish. Overall: OK Brown Ale, nothing too spectacular though. Bottle from Safeway, Seward.

on tap @ Prospector’s / Denali Nat’l Park AK --- Clear dark amber color with a long-lasting off-white head, sheets of lace. Nice looking along with a good malt aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt that stays true to the openers until light hops enter in a relatively short finish. A really nice, simple, Nut Brown Ale. Recommended.

Medium brown, a little nutty aroma. Moderate nutty character, but with a fairly full body. Off-dry finish. Decent brown. The brewery generally makes good malty styles, but this is maybe the least inspirational of the ones I’ve had.

Reviewed from notes. She pours brown and leaves the same colored body with a one finger white foamy head, leaves a nice speckled lacing that spiderwebs appropriately for an American Brown Ale. The smell is roasty and toasty, nutty, malty, bready, slight caramel. The taste is nutty sweet and the caramel comes back to add into the flavoring, nutty aftertaste, watery finish. On the palate, she sits about a medium, and comes across fairly sessionable - perhaps, carbonation seems a bit subdued for the style and seems fairly good to me, nothing bad but nothing spectacular. Overall, I say this is a good American Brown Ale, though perhaps closer to an English Brown Ale, no worries (seems its semantics these days), I’d still have this again, and you know what: Browns are absolutely awesome to have this time of year, I’ve actually waited to have this until now.

650ml bottle pours brown in color with a small off-white head that leaves only a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and chocolate with some mild citrus. Taste is a chocolate and caramel malty sweetness with a mild citrus hop bitterness and some toasty notes. Light to medium bodied with mild carbonation. Ordinary brown ale at best, nothing special.

Bottle:   Pale brown with a big ruby hue, moderate frothy tannish head, little lacing.   Nutty aroma, slightly bready.   Smidgen of powdered chocolate or cocoa.   Much more nutty on the tongue.   Otherwise a little mealy, certainly malty, pale breadiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, albeit it seems smooth for not being very heavy.   Finishes with toasted malts, a bit of nuttiness, moderate sweetness.   Nothing out of the ordinary, but decent.
