341mL bottle poured an amber-brown color with a beige head that settled slowly to some spotted lace. Aroma of nuts and malt. Taste is lightly sweet with some bitterness in the finish. Nice carbonation and a little thin on the body. Overall, this is quite a drinkable beer.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2004
Amber-brown colour with thin off-white head that falls back to a thin film of bubbles. Thin metallic, slightly sweet aroma, with a faint but pleasant nuttiness. Thin caramel malt sweetness with a short brown sugar and roasted nut finish. Thin bodied, but no more so than anything from this brewery. A simple brew but not a bad one.

Nice dark brown appearance with a faint creamy aroma. Flavor is extremely mild with a touch of malts. Very smooth. At best an average Brown but it gets bonus points for drinkability.

Not a typical dark brown ale but I really like the reddish glow here. Aroma doesn't really exist, decent flavor but very incomplete. Easy to drink but not very enjoyable to drink. I didn't even notice the nutty roasty flavor.

Beer is nutty and malty but there is a strong presence of alcohol in the aftertaste. Nicer as it warms up.

Calling this nut brown "classic" is a bit of a stretch, but hey, Jethro Tull is called "classic" rock, so I'll ignore both inconsistencies for now. Slight bite of alcohol, despite its low 5.6% abv. That's not good, folks. But otherwise, it is both nutty and malty. True to its name (at least in part).

Sure looks good in the glass. Beautiful copper brown. More bitter than expected. Watery palate. Description says "Classic Nut Ale"; overpowering hops crushes all other flavours.

Deep brown with tan head. Faint malt nose and taste. Mild lingering finish. Good lace
