2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This highly rated beer did not find favor here. Provided to Mr and Mrs Signalwriter by the Jersey Girls, we sampled bottles in Minnesota and Texas - though from the same batch/carton. Bottles pour a Coca-Cola brown with a quite light head. Aroma and flavor are mild and aromatic, and the taste is tart. Dry mouthfeel. Average taste.

About as nice an ale as I've had. Simple, nutty, malty and pleasantly sweet with slight bitterness at the end. Perfectly balanced and easy to drink.

I purchased an individual bottle of this directly from the New Glarus brewery. Poured into a pint glass with a dark copper hue and a moderate head that left behind a nice lacing. This beer smelled malty with hints of nuttiness. The taste was smooth with the malt and nut combining together nicely. There was also just a bit of hop bitterness. Yet again New Glarus has made a fantastic beer.

Pours a clear orange/brown color with a tan head. The smell is toasted malt, spice, brown bread, caramel. The taste is caramel, toasted malt, it is dry, herbal and spicy with some fruitiness on the end. Light/medium in body with average carbonation. Nice cold weather beer...

Bottle. Brown with a tan head. The aroma was nutty malt while the flavor was the same with some hints of caramel. It was fairly well balanced.

A very enjoyable beer. I’m not sure I’d call it hazelnut. It has a nice brown color and strong malt aroma. I found a noticable alcohol flavor on the finish and wondered at the strength. Would be great with shepherds pie or beef stew.

Not really impressed by this beer. Malty with a weird yeast fuzziness. Toast and carbonation. Thin on the tongue. I have to say in general pretty disappointing.
