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.

Tastes alot like Kiltlifter and I love Kiltlifter. A good beer not too heavy. Not sure the alcohol percent but didnít feel any effects after two of them.

Poured for me in íSpenserís Barí, Grand Canyon Hotel, Williams, Arizona. Sunday 9th May 2010, Mothers Day. The beer came a true nut brown colour, slight haze, but not cloudy by any means. On top sat a thin tan coloured foaming head, didnít stay long though. The smells given off were all malty, sweet molasses with slight hints of chocolate and coffee if you dug deep enough. The maltiness carries on throughout the tasting, it dominating the flavours from start to finish. There is a small attempt at some bitterness towards the end of the mouthfeel, but too little too late in my opinion. Not a bad brown, but not a great one either.

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 (3818) - Holbśk, 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 (734) - 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 canít 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.
