3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft in Lyons as One Nut Brown. Deep chestnut brown-black. Creamy beige head. Deep malty aroma. Slightly crisp and bitter up front, before fading into a soapy, toffee finish. Medium to full-bodied, with some bitter nuttiness. Pretty solid, on the dark side for a Brown, approaching Porter at times. OK.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft in lyons, also called one nut brown. Pours earthy brown with only a ring of gray head. Malty aroma, caramel, nuts like almond and hazelnut. Medium bodied, lighter than normal for an OB brew. Earthy, nutty, caramel flavors. Not bad, pretty good, but probably the weakest offering I’ve had from OB.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2010 Sample at Oskar Blues Grill & Brew in Lyons (as One Nut Brown Ale). Pours a clear dark brownish-amber color with a medium thin light beige head that diminishes to an outer ring. Just a couple of small patches of lacing. Sweet roasted malt in the nose along with some nuts. Light to medium body with a sweet grainy malt character with some chocolate and nut flavors. The finish is sweet with a lingering malt aftertaste. Decent Brown overall.

A decent nut brown ale, slightly more nutty and oaky than most, but nothing amazing.

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, it’s exactly what you’d expect from a brown ale. Medium bodied, it’s a decent brew.
