3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
tap at the Lyons brewpub "one nut brown ale" - Pours medium brown and has a mild caramel malt aroma. The flavor is roast caramel malt with some nuttiness. In other words, itís exactly what youíd expect from a brown ale. Medium bodied, itís a decent brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at the brewpub - "one-nut brown ale" - yet another boring american-made brown ale - dark amber/brown - quickly disappearing head - lightly toasty aroma - the flavor is a bit overly sweet, with some notes of roast, chocolate, a hint of maple, even a touch of earthy peat - itís funny they wanted to call it little chub, because my initial impression was that it tasted like watered-down Old Chub - perhaps it is?

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ the brewpub, named One Nut Brown tonight. Pours a hazy brown with a small beige head, slowly fading to a film. Aroma of toast and chocolate malts. Flavor follows with some toasty malts and light grain, some chocolate in the backend. Bitterness peaked @ a 2.. Light to moderate carbonation with a a body much the same. It is what it is--OK.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy root beer brown with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet, lightly nutty malt with a touch of fruitiness in support. Light to medium-bodied and slightly astringent with a drying palate. Sweet, nutty and malty with a slightly hoppy finish. A decent brown.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft @ brewery. Pours a very nice looking cloudy brown, with a frothy off-white head. Some lacing. Aroma of roasted malts (not over burnt). Flavor similar, a touch of sweetness, and well balanced. Palate is smooth and creamy. Overall I found this to be a good tasting, highly drinkable brown ale. Would buy tons if I didnít have to drive to Lyons to drink it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at brewery. Body-dark brown with a thick ring of bubbles and a patchy film of bubbles. Nose-light sweet melon rind, wet malts, wet cardboard. Taste-well, itís a Brown Ale. Semi-dry, bark, light peanut shell, lightly grassy, hay, light sawdust, very light alcohol on the back end, medium CO2, cottony. Bark and nut dominate. What else can I say? Itís a Brown Ale-nothing more, nothing less.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the pub. Pours muddy septic watter brown with a bit of khaki head. Good lace. Nose is a bit nutty with some herbal hop notes. Decent for a brown ale. Flavor is pretty nutty with a yeasty frutiy thing going on. Nice bitter punch that I did not expect. Medium body. Not bad for a brown, the most mundane style out there.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Brick Store.
Pours a dark brown with hints of red around the edges. The off-white head lasts for a long while and leaves decent lacing.
The aroma is pretty subdued with a strong sweet malt presence along with some nutty tones as well. I picked up very little hops in the nose at all.
The nuts actually come out a little stronger in the taste and balance the big sweet malt base. Again, there is little in the way of hops and the finish is slightly sweet with a fairly strong roasted character.
The mouthfeel is very creamy and smooth with good carbonation.
This is a very good brown and much more of an English brown in my book due to the seemingly small amount of hops. Either way, it’s very drinkable. Big thanks to Dave at the Brick Store for scoring this one.
