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.

Good malty and nutty beer. Not overpowering on the malts or the nut. The beer had that distinctive nut brown color.

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.

$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.

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.
