Draft at new new south brewery. Thinking beer doesnít travel well according to other reviews. Smooth. Easy to drink. Slightly sweet. Not bitter at all. Newcastle wishes it was this good.

First beer Iíve had from this upstart brewery in my homestate. Aromas are a bit dull but there is some chocolate and brown sugar in there. Flavor is a bit of the same but it seems a bit off. Canít hate too much on a beer from a new brewery in a state that needs more microbreweries, but this one just isnít that great at all.

Draft at the source. Hazy medium brown color, small white head. Aroma of toasted caramel. Tastes like a sweet and light Newcastle.

Draught at Drunken Jack's, SC. An appealing light brown with no head. Nutty aroma and taste. Not complex and quite delicious. Modest finish. Nicely done. I'd order it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Woody, tea-colored brew. Almost, if not, clear. Good íbeachyí can that looks like itís been bleached in the sun. Slightly sweet, gean pecan, slightly doggy, malty aroma. Dry, lightly-bittered, mild roast - pretty bland. Watery body with little CO2 retention. Long mild bitter/roast finish. Poor, especially for the style. Can, World of Beer, Columbia.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2012 Poured from a 12oz. can into a standard pint glass. Pours a hazy copper brown with a small white head that fades pretty quickly into a thin ring of bubbles and lacing that slides down into the drink. Aroma is an odd metallic smell with a slight nutty and a wet soap scent underneath it. Taste is sort of a nutty and bready taste, but seemly very watered down. The metallic can taste comes through, unfortunately. Yes, this tastes like Newcastle in a can. A very dry, bitter finish that has kind of a soapy aftertaste. Palate is light and a bit thin and watery, but the carbonation is well-balanced. Overall not terrible, but not memorable or recommendable either. This could definitely use a boost on the taste. Not a particularly good example of a nut brown ale, but far from the worst. Perhaps canning this was a bad idea, as the unmistakable canned beer smell and taste come through. Iím thinking this may taste better from a tap on in a bottle. Iíll give it another chance so long as it isnít from the can.

can. "new south nut brown" clear light brown beer with a large, fluffy, beige head. nose isnít too exciting. itís got some crystal malt, but not much nutty or "brown" hints. flavors decent with lighter crystal notes. could be a bit more bold, but itís an easy drinking brown ale.
