Can someone refer me to a beer that is similar to a Knotty Brunette that is available off the shelf?

(Draught) Pours a nut brown body with a medium cream head. Served about 20 degrees too cold. Aroma of caramel, nuts, and grain. Flavor of nuts, caramel malt, and toasted grain with a somewhat dry finish.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Pour is chestnut brown with a nice dense light tan head...smell us lightly sweet and toasty with some caramel and honey...taste is fairly richly sweet with the aforementioned flavors...a lingeringly sweet finish...

Fratto (2590) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Man-sized mug from Twin Peaks at cwsample’s bachelor party. Served alongside chicken fried steak (2lbs breading, 3oz steak), macaroni cheese, and mashed potatoes. Waitress literally dumped her nose in another customer’s beer to smell whether it was Miller or Coors. She was not as cute as she thought she was. Light brown pour with little to no head. Aroma is roasted malts, caramel, and cereal. Flavor is roasted, a little sweet, malty, and sticky. Bitter finish. Fizzy.

Cavie (3747) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2010
Tap at Twin Peaks with Fratto at cwsample’s bachelor party. Clear amber color. Slight head. Light aroma with a small feeling of nuts and malts. Taste is sweet candy that immediately turns bitter. Light toasted nuts. Some caramel. Not too bad, the finish is alittle unsettling.

On tap at Twin Peaks. The look is light brown, clear, with a beige colored head. The smell is cold, nutty, grains, malts, and caramel. The taste is very cold, malts, grains, nuts, and eh.

Exclusive to twin peaks. Not a big fan of peaks but I like having the beer slush occasionally ( their beer served @ 30° so the top layer is slushy ice) Has a sweet aftertaste beer that’s slightly caramely w/ a little more honey aftertaste to it. Lighter & sweeter than Shiner but much closer to its quality than a Bud, Miller, or Coors. I was impressed but... Franconia makes quality stuff so not surprised.

BMan1113VR (7820) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 29, 2010
"Man sized ::wink::" glass from tap (from the 27.4*F bank, not the 29.1*F one) The places I go for a new Franconia rate. Served at what seems to be absolute zero. There are ice chips in it. Long lasting head (that’s what she said), over a iceberg cluttered brown body. Aroma: ice. Move over Coors, there is a new coldest smelling beer. Taste is grainy and cereally. Some caramel. Fizzy mouthfeel. This beer tastes cold, apparently colder than the rockies. Now I know where strippers work during the day. This place is a joke!

(draught at Twin Peaks served at 27.5 degrees Fahrenheit) chunky ice on top of cloudy brown, creamy tan head and excellent lacing. Nose of nuts, brown sugar, Taste of dirty water, roasted nuts, unsweet grainy malt. Medium to light body with a dark sugary finish that’s also pretty creamy.
