COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A 2002 Bronze Medal Winner in the North American Brewers' Association competition. This northern Arizona favorite has a consistent nutty flavor with just a hint of spice in its depths. A slowly emerging bitterness crops up along the way and is unobtrusively incorporated into the smooth flow. It finishes with a gentle nuttiness and spiciness. Excellent with sandwiches and subs.

Clear reddish brown with a small milk colored head and very light lacing. Aroma of nuts, roast, and a touch of coffee. Taste is malty and nutty. Body is light-medium with smooth carbonation.

12 oz. bottle. Thanks Timmy! Pours dark brown with a thin head and no lacing. The aroma is molasses, pecans, a little roasted malts and some earthy hops. The flavor is sticky sweet, and very bitter. The palate is medium, sticky and astringent. Overall, this is a sticky, syrupy, and cloyingly sweet. Not very impressed.

12 ounce bottle pours a light brown color, aromas of nuts, and rosted malt. Flavor is the same, nothing that stood out, a nice little brown ale however.

Pours deep dark brown but still able to see through the glass. Nice mocha aroma and taste but a watery finish.

Clear mahogany, almond hazelnut aroma. Some weight and heaviness, creamy texture, little grit. Very good nut brown.

stouby (3686) - Holbæk, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2011
Bottle in Sedona. Brownish. Aroma moderate malty (roasted, nutty) and hoppy. Flavor moderate malty and bitter. Medium body. OK.

J_man (685) - Tustin, California, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Nutty malt aroma with a slight sourness. Light/medium brown with a tan head. The first thing I notice is a sour flavor that I generally associate with a bacterial infection. There is a nice roasted malt and caramel flavor behind this, but it can’t cure the sourness. Smooth creamy finish with a woody (but still sour) aftertaste.

Great looking label. Very disappointing beer. I tried to give away a few bottles it was so bad. More wasted money on an inferior brew. Tasted awful.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Draft at Hyatt resort in Scottsdale AZ. Pours brown with a light beige head. Nutty malt aroma. Lighter side of medium bodied with steady carbonations. Flavor of nutty malts, chocolate, and caramel with a balancing bitterness. Light grainy finish. Not bad, definitely better than Newcastle

Sweet malt fruit and light hop aroma. Clear orange color with a medium tan head. Sweet beginning with a light better finish.
