rosenbergh (6078) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2012
Draught at the Fette Sau, New York, NY.
Dark reddish amber colour with small creamy off-white head. Mild malty aroma with sugary sweetness, brown sugar and nuts. Toffee and sugary sweetness, sweet maltiness and mild nuttiness in flavour. Too sweet for me.

Draft from a cafe in Williamsburg. This brown ale is stout smooth with mild notes of almonds and chocolate. No discernible hop flavors, but this light-medium bodied beer paired very nicely with my steak dinner.

This is served as the house Nut Brown at 5 Napkin Burger in Astoria, Queens. It’s sweet, golden brown, malty, nutty and a bit thin. It’s decent for a house beer. Not bad at all.

$7.99 growler f/Brew York, filled two days ago. Clear medium auburn with a 1 finger light brown white head, good retention. Aroma of some toasty malts, followed by a pretty good amount of hazelnuts--not the artificial Rogue kind. Flavor is sweeter with some caramel malt notes, but stays plenty dry enough, keeping me happy. Mainly nutty and toasty following through to a semi-dry finish, bitterness at a 2 and a little earthy. No off flavors noted. Light smooth carbonation with a light to medium body. Easy drinking, no complaints here.
