COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Never had more fun gathering nuts! This smooth Ale has an even display of hop bitterness and bold malt flavor, with a hint of nutty flavor from the dark malt, to produce a superior brown ale taste.

Had 13 beer flight on a beautiful custom wood flight. Beers overall were solid and the service was great. Nothing extraordinary overall with flight, but most palatable and easy to drink. A few unique beers with honey and lavender. Individual beers as follows: Worth your weight in gold: Lager taste, slight malty feel, plenty of flavor for a yellow clear beer. Nice lager. Slippery rock Dew: Thick in the mouth, honey flavor readily present, fresh and refreshing Station 33:Crisp, caramel malts, simple but enjoyable Mcleods Eva: Smooth, sweet at the end. Light and watery for a malty beer. Less overwhelming, good or bad, then many in the same style Squirel Nut Brown: Good rendition for the style Amber waves of grain: Can really taste the caramel malts. Drinkable. Simcoe Pale Ale: Smells like a christmas treee. Would be nice with a big dinner to cleanse the pallate between bites. Paleo IPA: average IPA Frias Porter: Good flavor bute falls a little short. Root beer flavor at the end Stonehouse stout: On nitro. Guiness feel in the mouth but a bit more boring. Fruit bowl: neat idea, apricot flavor this go around, great summer beer Lavender Abbey: Strong aroma and flavor. Lavender hits you in the face. Polarizing experience.

merc7186 (2256) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2013
The beer poured great with a nice brown color that passes through very little light, has a nice whitish brown hue to it, and leaves some lacing on the glass. The beer smells great with a well balanced blend of dark malts, mild hoppiness, caramel, and hazelnut. The beer tastes decent as it is very smooth, well blended nutty and malty flavors and balances nicely. The mouthfeel is great as the beer is well carbonated, medium boided, and leaves you with a mild sweet nutty taste. Overall, a decent nut brown ale, different with the hazelnut tastes and isn’t overpowering at all.

JStax (3244) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Poured on draft at the source. Pours a dark brown with a thin, beige head of foam. Aroma is smoky and nutty. Sweet and roasty toasty. Nice combination. Pretty nice take on a nut brown.

This is a standard brown ale with a smooth slightly roasty flavour, no bitterness. A slight nutty aroma. A slightly thin mouthfeel but a steady drink. This would be a great session beer, or a good compliment to food.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5095) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a dark red-brown color with a khaki head. The aroma was dry and roasty with hints of floral and fruity hops. The flavor was dry, roasty and bitter with touches of fruit, wood and nut. The finish was long with roasty fruit and wood. Solid.

kassner (1377) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2008
A little high in carbonation, dark nutty with a nice tart finish. Not the best of type

Homebrewerguy (304) - Oil City, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2008
Growler: Nice heady beer upon pour, good fullness of palate, moderate roasty flavor with a good hop balance, not a bad brown ale

12/27/07 - Winter Road Trip ’07 - Draft sampler at brewpub. Brown color with amber hues. Small, off-white head that becomes a small rimmer. Nice lacing. Roasted malt nose. Big nut flavor with a nice bitterness. Roasted coffee, brown sugar and molasass. End is sweet with hop bitterness that lingers into the after. Good looking, tasty brew.

Dark reddish brown pour with a slight off-white head. A hazelnut nose. Strong roasted almond and hazelnut flavor with some smokey woody hints, almost like the roasted shells were thrown in too. I caught a hit of sunflower as well.
