I enjoyed this brew on tap at the Waterfront Ale House in NYC. It poured a lightly carbonated, thick brown lager. Nice head on the beer with an appealing nutty aroma. I was impressed with the initial hazelnut hit on my palate. Finished nicely with choclate and mild hoppy hints.

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.

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

$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.

Crisp dark brown coloured body with an almost perfect, three centimetre tall tan head that shows nicely. Aroma of nuts, earth, caramel, brown sugar and a touch of light funky yeast - nice. Medium-bodied; Assertive nutty flavour with some walnuts and cashews noticeable and an almost fruity finish with a pleasant sweetness. Aftertaste shows a little depth from the caramel and a lot of nuts with only a touch of yeastiness and funk at the tail end. Overall, a decent nut brown and perhaps one of the better and most complex ones i’ve had in a while, but that still unfortunately doesn’t make this a beer worth searching out to find. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 08-November-2014 for US$2,25 sampled at home in Washington on 15-March-2015.

Tap at Sweet Afton. Reddish brown pour, somewhat clear. Aroma has brown sugar, ginger bread, and chocolate malt. The spice and chocolate are subtle but blend together very nicely Flavor is similar: brown sugar and chocolate malt, but little spice coming through. The chocolate malt comes out more as it warms. A little bit of yeast in the finish. Very nice.

Draft at One & One in NYC. I actually missed the word Lager on the tap handle so I had assumed this was actually an English Brown ale. Pours a dark mahogany. Nose is light cocoa and toast. Faded hops are present. On taste, round and soft with toasty melanoidins and a full body. Light hop character. Pretty tasty, really.
