3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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).

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
thin almost nonexistent head. nice brown color. definitely a nutty aroma. maybe a little chocolate. thin on the palate, but not bad. smooth finish.
I should mention I had it at Champps in Milwaukee first; not sure if on tap. Bought it at Binnys back home.
I went back and got a second 6 pack, mainly for the nuttiness.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle pours a clear copper/brown with a small off-white head and no lacing. Aroma is pleasant: nutty, with roasted malts but no discernible hops. This one went downhill quickly after the first sip.though. Taste is sour with a metallic finish, not helped by a fairly thin texture and too much carbonation. Iíll pass on this one next time..

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear deep brown with a beige head. The aroma has toasty nutty malt, some bread and brown sugar. Medium / thin body with mild carbonation and finishes really thin and watery. Starts with nuttiness then it quickly get medicinal, tinny and filled with minerals./ The finish is like sucking on a penny. Didnít like this one.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
BOTTLE and TAP. I get caramel, salty nuts and metal. Why does this have to taste like I am sucking on the nut cracker?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the bottle, pours opaque brown with a white foamy head. Brown sugar, amber malt, really not that bad. Not a big fan of browns, but nothing wrong with this one.
