ruby/hazlenut body, little carbonation. toasty and lightly nutty. some citrus fruits in the nose as well. nuttiness developes well throughout. astringent and dry, strong hop presence and noticeable alcohol presence. full in the mouth, decent complexity, but lacks a bit in body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light brown color. Pour creates minimal head. Aroma is overwhelmingly malty (true characteristic of the style). Flavor is a bit nutty, initially sweet with just the right amount of bitterness. A very good Brown Ale.

Nutty, caramel aroma, copper, with a small custard head. Huge nutty, bitter flavour. Full bodied, a very nice example. Thanks David.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not very dark for a brown ale, more of an amber/light copper color with a big pillowy white head. Lightly roasted, nutty caramel malt aroma. Light, soft cashew flavor with subtle malty undertones. Body is a little thin, but the finish is a dry, sweet, and satisfying one. This is a good smooth and drinkable session brown ale.

Mmm...nice roasty scent. A reddish-brown color and a thick long-lasting head make this an appealing beer to look at. But how does it taste? Hmm. Malty. Slight coffee taste. Kind of clings to your mouth, like cough syrup does. Nice enough, but nothing too special.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly hazy amber/tan liquid with bone colored stable head. Real toasty, near octoberfest, aroma - very pleasent. Knee jerk reaction (as compared to my normal jerk reaction) this is a really good brown ale. Initial malt sweetness coats the mouth followed by a roasted/toasted sourdough flavor. Just enough hops to distract from the sweetness. Dry malt toast in the finish. To me this would be a perfect fall ale when the leaves are turning and gridiron action starts back up. I can't wait I'll have another.

A very nice drinkable nut brown. Definite session ale and the wife likes it too... I thought that this was to be one of the "unplugged" beers that New Glarus is creating... Smooth taste with a nice malty profile and the hops are not overassertive making this one true to style. I will give this one two thumbs up, just as soon as I finish this bottle....
