MBC have definately fixed their problems with this beer. I picked up a bottle from the brewery and its quite good. Not incredible, but good. Malty, roasty notes. A little hop bite. Try it again and re-rate!

Sweet, caramelly aroma. Opens sweet and aromatically malty. Middle has more hoppy bite to it. Finishes sweet with a clear alcohol tang. Not a bad beer.

Ok guys, this beer has gotten a bad rap. The folks at the brewery well realize that early incarnations of this in their sampler packs were spoiled to hell. This is no longer the case. On tap, at the brewery the stuff may be too caramelly sweet and weak, but itís a basic nutty borwn ale and not the horrible monster of RateBeer mythos. Original rating: This one has an identity crisis. Itís got the horrid explosive yeastiness of the worst wheats and the texture/carbonation problems of badly microbrewed porters and stouts. Thereís a bit of the malt under all that, but itís pretty swamped by the problems.

Are you kidding me? At first I thought that I got an infected bottle, but after reading the other ratings I realize that it was supposed to taste that way. This tastes like sour cider. Horribley undrinkable.

Yuck. Like a Long Island Ice Tea gone horribly wrong. This was so bad. Had these three distinct tastes in it then finished with the horrible lemon sour taste. Not a Nut Brown

This beer tastes fowl...it was bitter-sour. It had the worst aftertaste, almost like gasoline. I canít believe that there could actually be repeat buyers for this beer.

YECH!!! After two drinks the only thing Iím trying to figure out is if the rest is going down the drain or not. Perhaps I got a bad bottle, not sure, but this stuff is AWFUL! Itís almost got a Belgian style sourness to it, but not in a way thatís complimenting. The aroma is borderline infected smelling. You can smell a bit of the toastiness through the foulness. Have you ever gotten one of those burps while drinking that bring up a bit of stomach acid and beer? Iíve put my finger on it, THAT IS WHAT THIS TASTES LIKE! No exaggeration! Sorry to the people at MBC, but this is really the pits. P.S. The rest is going down the drain.
