$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.

This had a nice balance of malt and hops, with a nutty flavor, and hints of spice.

Tasting from draft at Rockaway Seafood Company. Light bodied and watery. Roasted malt, stale coffee, some sweet malt in the background. Not much to it.

This seems to be showing up at taps all over these days. Pleasant, if slightly heavy, nutty and malty.

Nice copper color with decent off-white head. Caramel malt and toasty nose hint of hop in the aroma. Creamy mouthfeel, sweet with hop balance. My type of brown. Well done.

mansquito (4054) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Union Hall, Brooklyn tap ($5): Pours a brown color with a beige head... looks and feels like a brown ale. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, nuts. Beer is very malty, but has a definite undertone of lager taste. It is almost as if you try to make a brown ale out of a lager. Not overly complex, but drinkable and pretty tasty. A solid beer, if not anything really special.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Pours dark brown, smells of nuts, and roasted barley. Nutty, rich malt flavor with a pack of hops leaving for a crisp finish.

Draught at Village Pourhouse, not a bad beer, has a nice hint of chocolate with a mix of a toasted sugar finishing with a light bitterness.

Nickls (1956) - Kingstowne, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2010
(Old BA rate - tap) Half-finger of light tan head; foggy dark brown color. Sweetish malts; light hint of grain and a bit of chocolate. Malty sweetness; grainy-metallic flavors. Thin with muted carbonation. Decent; and I could see this being a decent session brew if the metallic flavor wasn’t there. Otherwise has good potential
