Is this even beer, really? It’s like drinking urine, but without the sense of adventure.

This nut brown pours a soft clear brown with a weak head. It has a fairly thin mouthfeel. Simple construction with a malty side and a decent nutty flavor- like a toasted pecan. 6.5-j 6.5-B

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2012 Poured from a regular bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a slightly-cloudy medium brown color with a slight dark amber hue, with a good-sized creamy tan head with modest retention but ample cling. The aroma featured notes of caramel and maple malt, with compliments of cereal and grainy hops. Its taste was somewhat sweet with a bit of caramel and some bitter grainyness, but not smoothly put together. The body was fairly light in carbonation and fizz, mostly dry and on the thin side, with little mouthfeel.

Beerenberger (1380) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Pours a rich clear brown with an almost nonexistent head. The aroma is strong hazelnut with notes of malt and maple. The body is thin and the taste is much like the aroma. I fine this beer to be very satisfying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light brown-amber pour with small amount of head with continually rising bubbles. Has a sweet smell to it, caramel, toffee, maybe a hint of chocolate. Tastes about what it smells.

MarkSachon (560) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2012
From the 12oz bottle given to me as a gift from neighbor Bob. Pours thin with a very weak body. More transparent than a brown should be. Nothing outstanding to note other than the fact that in most places a case of this brand is usually discounted (and now I understand why).
