This is just about everything you’d expect from a Brown Ale, but with very little to criticize. Nutty, toffee, and brown sugar. Medium bodied and well balanced.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A - Pours a chestnut brown body with a fleeting cream head that forms a thin collar.
S - Sweet grain, oak wood, vanilla, raw walnuts, toasted sweet bread.
T - Toffee/caramel malt rounded out with notes of nutmeg, vanilla, oak and nuts. Hops take on a grassy/peppery role.
M - Light to medium body, well carbonated, creamy texture.
Very tasty. The malt is nice and sweet with plenty of nutty flavors going on. The hops add a nice spice. Just a well rounded Brown Ale. Very impressed!

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear nut brown with a half finger off-white head. Aroma of caramel and roasty nuts. Taste is light bitter. Roasty caramel malt with a little dark chocolate. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. New Glarus does better beers than this one though.
