Rcabbott (4) - - AUG 10, 2011 does not count
A good brown ale. Kind of a nutty taste and aftertaste (as the name indicates) and not too bitter. Good body and carbonation. An easy to drink brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BiddleBrau (1168) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2011
nice dark amber/copper color with just off-white head and a sweet malty nose. Nutty malt flavor. not quite as smooth as Sammy Smiths as hops kick in and push the malt flavor aside and take hold through the finish with a slight astringent aftertaste. There is a hint of chocolate here too. I find the start more pleasant than the finish but not too bad.

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Deep reddish amber brew with thin offwhite head. Aroma of caramel malts, a hint of toasted grain. Very mild aroma. Taste is sweet caramel, maybe a little nuttiness, a bit of toasted grain. A little sweet, and a little sweet on the finish. Nice brew.
