Subtle malty aroma. Very clean with slight nuttiness. Beautiful reddish brown appearance with a lasting off white head. Very smooth creamy taste with slight nutty finish. Very enjoyable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a short stubby bottle BIG thanks to reggie! Dull malty slightly unfathomable aroma that carries over to the flavors. Yes, a dark malty thing but its not too over the top in dull browness. Not bad but not sure if its lacking in manners or personality.

We conducted a blind taste test with this beer and 5 other brown ales to objectively determine which one was best. The 5 beers were: Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale, Lost Coast Downtown Brown, Big Sky Moose Drool, Newcastle Brown, and Wychwood Hobgoblin. You can view the video here: http://youtu.be/oz0hSSylY70

This beer isnt amazing, but one must take into account price when reviewing beer. Ive had better browns, but the standard dark ale tastes are there even if theyre a bit weak. 13$ for a twelvepack. I wish more companies were brewing these easy drinking low bitterness darks.

Bevendola vorresti un sapore leggermente più deciso e in generale il corpo si lascia un pò portar via se avete bevuto qualcosa prima,tostatura leggera e nocciola,apprezzabile ma giù in città si beve di meglio

Bozo_skeleton (437) - Grenoble, FRANCE - NOV 18, 2013
robe ambree, peu de carbo, col moyen. Aromes portes sur les fruits rouges (pluot cerises aigres), le caramel et les fruits a coques torrefies. Bon equilibre, moyennement ronde, les flaveurs de caramel et de grille ressortent bien en final. Amertume moderee sur une bonne longueur.
