3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Stopped by the brewpub for lunch today and $2.50 pints! Hard to beat that price.
Started out with this one. Came out almost full-to-the-brim. It’s an odd looking beer. It’s extremely murky and cloudy brown. Looks like this glass was dipped in the local Yadkin river. A small white head rests atop. Great lace sticks to the glass. The nose is really sweet, with fresh bread, toffee, hazelnut.
A smooth creamy mouthfeel. Moderately deep with ample carbonation. Sweet flavors make up the bulk, not surprisingly. Toffee, caramel, brown sugar, graham crackers. Bitterness is low to near absent. This is a simple Brown, but one I’d revisit for sure. A pleasant brew to sip on while waiting for my food to arrive.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2011 Pours a dark copper with a thick off-white head. Nose is earthy with a touch of brown sugar and spice. Earthy malt throughout but with a slight rise in hops near the end of the swallow. Toffee malt plays a role throughout.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I had the Nut Brown Ale on tap on 1/23/08.
Appearance: Beer came with a small 1 finger head and looked to be dark brown from what I could tell from the lighting. The smell was nutty with a hint of malted caramel.
Taste: Nutty with hints of caramel like the smell as expected with a nice bite of bitterness at the finish.
Mouthfeel: Very solid. It wasn’t too thin or thick but was just right.
Drinkability: Pretty high. I had two and don’t know that I would want to have more than three in a single sitting.
All things considered, this in my favorite offering from Liberty Steakhouse in High Point. I will definitely drink it again.
