This is a traditional Northern English Brown Ale that has a nutty malty aroma with a smooth hop finish. The beer is fermented a couple of degrees warmer than our other beers to give it a little more of a fruity winy aroma that is characteristic of the style. Brewed with Pale Ale, Cara-munich, Biscuit, and Chocolate Malts with Kent Goldings and First Gold Hops.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Tap: Dark amber brown color with a small tan head. Aroma: Smokey nuts, hint of malt. Flavor: initially a nice roasted nut taste that broadens to malt sweetness and later a bitter aftertaste. Has a medium body and a pleasing mouth feel, but doesn’t really excite the palate. Average for a Nut Brown, one of Custom Brewcrafters best.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2007 I can taste the malt and its got hops. A very good brown with conventional brown appearance and tan head. Nutty carmel sweetness. A richness to it

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2003 New Rating:
Dark amber colour with ruby highlights. Thin off-white head. Smokey nuttiness in the aroma. Medium-bodied; Nutty flavour which fades to malt. Bittering aftertaste from the malt and nuts. Overal. pretty average for the style. I had this on draught at the Old Toad in Rochester, New York on 22-September-2003.

Old Rating:
Found this rating in my palm from way before, but it is still valid. Dark brown in colour with a thin off-white head. Completely absent in smell, nothing going for it. Very light in 'nut' taste and somewaht bitter. An odd taste altogether. I had this on draught at the Old Toad in Rochester, New York on 25-January-2003.
