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. I’ll 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. Didn’t 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.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Watery, faint nutty aroma. Where’s the hops? Where’s the taste? This beer is not good.
