There are a lot of ways to make an American Brown Ale- Ours of course leans toward the hoppy side. Beer Nut balances Ahtanum and Cascade hops with a complex malt character. Two different types of crystal malt, chocolate malt and bready Victory malt give us a beer that’s complex and delicious.

Bottle shared by Matt at Craft Beer Live. Pours a cloudy mocha brown with a beige head. A nutty aroma, some pine hop, mostly hazelnut. Hazelnut flavour with some gentle coffee and malt. A moderately bitter pine finish. Lively carbonation with a medium body, lingering nutty flavour. Pretty good stuff.

maekchu (3460) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 1, 2016
Tap at Hanshin Department Store Portland Fair. Apparently, this is a Japan-exclusive beer. Medium roasty nose, caramel, and hazelnuts. Medium translucent brown color. Rich roast malt initial, moderate hop in mid, light coffee notes, mild bitter finish. Thin-medium body and very clean feautured. Smooth and fairly tasty.

Wombata (620) - Kobe, JAPAN - JAN 28, 2016
Tap at Hanshin for Portland/Valentines Day event. The idea for this came from Ai Tani-San of CBB and Laurelwood came up with the recipe and made it. Aroma: Light molasses note, roasted hazelnuts, coffee. Palate: Medium bodied. Flavor: Light molasses sweetness hazelnut, dark chocolate, coffee that turns toward bitter chocolate on the finish. Comment: Dry overall with definite nutty character. Well done.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4598) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 28, 2016
Tap at Hanshin’s Portland Event. Laurelwood Nut Brown Ale 6.4% Pouring a deep brown with a thin beige head. The aroma is nutty chocolate, think a nutty muffin. The flavor is a bit sweet than expected with a well balanced roastiness and nut spread character. Flavorful and easy drinking, it was my favorite of the tasting set.
