xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUN 7, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Cloudy brown with small white head. Dry nutty aroma and very malt forward as it should be. Sweeter nutty flavor with some metallic but overall in style. Medium to light, watery. In style.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2007
On tap at the brewery. Pours a mostly transparent, cedar bark brown color with a healthy layer of foamy off-white head. Aromas of toasted hazelnut shells and overbaked french bread crust. Light bodied, crisply carbonated mouthfeel. A bit husky, with some mildly astringent grain huskiness and burned bread crusts. A bit thin on the palate, with a nutty, toasty quality making up more of the deep malt character; could really use some more mid-malt depth for body and to smooth out the rough edges a bit. Otherwise its relatively clean and straightforward brown ale.

Tmoney99 (13587) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2007
Draft sampler at the brewpub. Poured a clear dark brown color with a medium off-white frothy head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Medium toasted nutty malty aroma. Medium body. Medium toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of average duration.

drywallman (359) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2004
I had this last week at the brewpub. This beer was definitely thin, but with a slight toasted malt flavor and nuttiness. Not real good, but drinkable.

redmosquito (172) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUN 14, 2004
A thin clear reddish brown beer with descent head. Toasty aroma with a hop background. Definite nutty flavor, with some hop character, good flavor but very thin mouthfeel. A very drinkable, flavorful brown for a warm spring afternoon.

Very pretty brew with a decent, if rather sweet, nut browniness.
