Pint at Anduzzi's sports club in green bay. Nice nut brown ale but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very clear and reddish brown with little head. Very sugary aroma with a hint of chocolate. Sweet and clean in flavor with some roasted caramel and hazelnut and a bit of chalkiness. Somewhat watery.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2008 KC Bier Meisters afterhours party. Red with bronze tints. Light roasty aroma with milk notes and cappuccino. Taste is roast and malty with some finishing hops. Nice balanced finish.

kramer (4686) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2005
12 oz bottle via trade with 1FastSTi. Clear copper pour, thin white head fleeting in duration. Aroma is of mild maltiness with an odd apple? smell. Pretty boring flavor, though nicely balanced. Palate is thin and lacking in depth. Overall a somewhat boring beer in a very boring style category. I will say that there was some oxidation in the finish, so possibly not the freshest sample?

Slight nutty smell. Niether good or bad; better than newcastle but that’s not saying much. I was hoping for something punchier form this brewery, but again the h20 dominates. If you want something from New Glarus for the winter season I suggest getting their Uff-da Bock which is way better and bolder.

On draft at Stevens Point Airport in Wisconsin. Color is a bit light and no noticable aroma (thought I think the smoke in the bar is messing with my senses a bit). Despite the appearance and aroma discrepancies, this is a very nice, enjoyable, beer.

Bottle...Poured a medium and see through brownish/amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, nuts, and toasted malts. Tastes of toffee, caramel, nuts and toasted malts. Had a light citric quality to it as well. could have used lil more body, but a good ale never the less.

Pour is a brown with a white head. Aroma is very roasty but not much else. Flavor is a little better. Some bready dough and nuts with a nice fruity sweetness. An ok rep of the style.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 18, 2008
Definitely a few steps up from the spotted cow. Had a lot of malty character with some toasted barley along with some toffee taste and some hazelnut taste. A solid beer that I wouldn’t look down on someone for drinking however it’s not my favorite so I probably wouldn’t buy again.

Bottle. A malty, sweet brown ale, with a strong roasted malt aroma. Heavier than other brown ales.
