An excellent bottled brown that tasted fresh as any bottled beer can hope. Toasty, biscuity aspect to the nose with caramel notes. Malt on palate, yet finishes fairly dry with some hop flavor playing a supporting role. Really decent bottled product. Would love to have it locally on tap!

I don’t really like brown ales in general but this one isn’t bad. Still my dislike for the style wins again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
April 20th, 2012 - Following fast on the heels of a sample of Moon Man is New Glarus’ Fat Squirrel - a brown ale, and an excellent test of New Glarus’ brewing style. If there’s a brew I’m more apathetic and saturnine about, it’s brown ales. Anybody that cane make a brown ale something more than mundane is okay in my book, and I say New Glarus is counted in that group. The aroma is rich with peat, mimicking a scotch ale, but diverging from its kilted cousin with the nutty smell that is unique to pistachio, all complemented by a rich layer of roasted malts. The flavor is rich, and gleaming, with ribbons of caramel, more peat, and freshly kilned malt, served on a medium and quenching palate. There’s no doubt - this is a notable brown ale, and another reason I should be living a little bit closer to New Glarus, Wisconsin.

Bottle to glass. A dark golden brown. Smell is a little metallic? Light to medium carbonation. A sweet nutty flavor, but it is balanced. Very drinkable.

Bottle pours caramel color with faintly yellow head. Malty aroma. taste caramel malt and nuts, bread. Clean slightly dull mild hop finish, none of the unpleasant finish you find in some nut brown ales. Full palate. Very drinkable.

Caramel color with a malty aroma. Great malty flavor, almost creamy feeling with a nutty finish on the back of your tongue. Great gateway beer into the nuttier sort.
