Very nice brown ale with a hint of nuttiness. Slightly more bitter than I would like but overall very good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light brown with bubbly lasting head. Smells distinctly nutty, with hops. Tastes lightly roasted nuts, mild caramel malts, with hop crispness to finish. Body is highly carbonated, sparkling even. Finishes hoppy, clean, crisp.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the bottle; light brown-copper in color with light off-white head. Smell of roasted-toasted malt/nuts, with a sweet caramel-chocolate note and hint of coffee, earth aroma. Medium body and slighty creamy; sweet taste, slighty bitter throught the middle and end. Overall a very good beer from one of Wisconsin’s best; New Glarus Brewing Co.

Had this beer on a trip to Milwaukee with my wife. Good beer from a good WI company, wish they’d distribute to MN, but from the twin cities it’s really not much drive to get some

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden amber pour. Lively carbonation. Slight walnut/hop mix aroma. Smooth nutty flavor, but a burned/roasted nut finish grows. No real strong hop presence. Probably woudn’t have again, but a good drinkable ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice brown with beautiful tan head. Nose is sweet, nutty, with little balance. Taste is also sweet but has better bitterness at the end. Overall, not too bad.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
A good Nut Brown Ale. Not too roasty or overbearing. Definitely drinkable. Aroma nothing crazy and it looks like your typical brown ale!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle poured into footed pilsener.
Ar: Some notes of vanilla, but nuttiness dominates. Hints of hazelnut in particular. Very aromatic; almost "sweet" smelling.
Ap: Some haziness. Medium brown color- think mahogany.
T: A little on the bitter side, despite the sweet aroma. Very tasty overall - strong flavors.
P: Lively carbonation with a pleasant dry finish.
O: Very good. One of my favorite brown ales. This beer is a great example of why Wisconsinites are proud of New Glarus.
