Aureth (20) - Knoxville, Iowa, USA - FEB 18, 2005
Bottle NIce malty aroma, with some hint of hazelnut, as the bottle suggests. Dark copper, with a thin head that doesnít last long. Nice malty flavor, a bit roasty with some chocolate and nutty tones. A little thin on the palate, however. I enjoyed this.

I donít really like brown ales. This one is pretty good though. Thin, yet a bit roasty for a brown.

Silphium (3177) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 9, 2005
Deep red coppery body, thin/medium light cream head. Toasty, nutty aroma with a touch of chocolate and earthy hops. Pretty thin-bodied but with a nice flavor profile, quite toasty and earthy with brown sugar and a slight nuttiness. Perfect for session drinking; this does everything right despite being light in body. Iím finding that New Glarus excels in subtlety.

Bottle from Styles. Pours a very clear chestnut color. A slight, beige head forms slowly and fades quickly. Nice nutty sweet aroma with a little touch of coffee. Mouthfeel is smooth. Nutty and caramel flavors. Nice hop finish. Nicely done brown ale.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Copper with a beige head. Pleasant aroma of malt, nuts, hops. Nicely carbonated and smooth in the mouth. Crisp, fresh nutty taste with hops and malt and caramel. Very good stuff.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2010 Pours brown/mahogany with decent head, spotty lacing. Nutty up front, hazelnut, faint almond, bready/toasty, faint caramel. Flavor well balanced combo of nuts and caramel/toffee, finishes with some hop bitterness. Creamy smooth mouthfeel. Great session.

Pailhead (5036) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 27, 2004
Bottle: Kind of a roasty, citrus, and chocolate aroma. Pours a transparent reddish-brown with a small white head that lasts a minute or so. Flavor is roasted malt with some chocolate in there. A little nuttiness, but mostly malty. Light hops in finish balance well with the initial flavors.

TheBeerGod (5309) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2004
Bottled. Acquired in a trade with joeybgood. Thanks Joe! Ruby tinged amber with splashes of brown throughout. Very "autumn" in color. Small whitish head. Nose is roasted malt, strong nuttiness, light cocoa and faint bittersweet chocolate. Taste is roasted malt and nuts. The chocolate comes through a bit more here. The nuttiness and roasty notes dominate, however. Mild hop character. Body is near full. Decent carbonation. Light bitterness. Finishes with more nuttiness and roasted notes. Good beer!

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - NOV 11, 2004
Bottle. Brownish amber color with a big head that turned into a whole lotta nada. Aroma that seems a bit oxidized, almost woody with some caramel, dough and choc malt. Nice roasty taste with flavors of hazelnut or almond with just a light hop bite. Mouthfeel has a bit of zip to it which can or canít be just a hop bitterness. Either way, this is a brown ale with a real nutty taste. My critcism is that itís just a tad too sweet and lacks head retention. Other than those two things, this is another fine NG beer.
