3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark tan color, just a shade darker than Newkie, 1.5 finger light tan head, settles to 1/4" layer. Aroma malty, brown sugar, maybe a little pepper. Good balance, toasty, malty, a touch of maple, some alcohol. A kiss of hops at the end---maybe English variety or Willamette. Goes well with pizza.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours ruby brown with a one-inch head. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar and dark fruit. Flavors are brown sugar, biscuit, and a hint of dark fruit. Dry, crackery finish. Mild hop presence. Clean mouthfeel. Not much of a malty backbone to this beer, it’s more dry and bready. Not terrible, but definitely not memorable.

Another pretty bland brown ale. Not really much else to say about it honestly.

This is an excellent American brown ale, slightly more hoppy than an English brown ale.

Draft sample at flip daddy’s. Pours dark cola brown with purple hue. Nose funky malt, almost like raw meat. One sweet malt. Taste sweet malt, smoother mouth feel, then late palate Pleasing nuttiness. Thankfully tastes better than it smells.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mt. Carmel Nut Brown Ale has a medium, fluffy, cream-colored head, a sort of brilliant rust-red-brown appearance, and a lace curtain left on the glass. The aroma is of sweetness, maybe some syrup, malt, and possibly a bright fruit of some sort. Taste is of sweetness, a touch of syrup, brown bread crust, and a noticeable, somewhat unpleasant bitterness, like one will get from pecan shell. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Mt. Carmel Brown Ale finishes semi-wet and easy drinking. RJT

Bottle. Hazelnut and light chocolate malt aroma. Medium brown with moderate tan head. Light sweet chocolate malt, hay, and mildly bitter herbal flavor. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Twelve ounce bottle from Mt. Carmel sampler 12 pack bought at Delhi Kroger. Sweer malty nose, dark brown hue, medium tan head that slowly departed leaving little lacing, sweet malty flavor that is undercut by too much astringency. This is the least impressive beer I’ve had to date from the usually reliable Mt. Carmel Brewery.
