chinchill (2713) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 4, 2013
12 oz bottle - from notes. Dark amber with small tan head that leaves good lacing. Looks on the more watery and more on the light side of the color variants for this style. A fine nut brown, with plenty of nutty malt flavor. Hops are clearly present but this is a more malty beer featuring medium roasted malt. Fine malty finish and aftertaste, again with a significant but mild hop presence. Medium body. Excellent carbonation. Semi-dry finish.

12 ounce bottle. Pours brown with a decent biege head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and nuts. Taste is malt, nuts, chocolate, caramel, and grass. Decent enough.

very bitter, nothing like Samuel Smithís nut brown ale - which is MUCH better

reebtogi (4583) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 18, 2013
355ml bottle pours an amber brown color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is nutty with some caramel notes and grass. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with some nuts and a grassy hop bitterness. Nothing special here, just another brown ale.

Actually a pretty good brown ale, has a nutty finish and a nice light brown pour. This beer is a much better offering than the previous peak organic beer I tried which was the pale ale.

jrodooo5 (1153) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 4, 2013
Nut brown - really? Easily one of the worst brown ales Iíve ever had! The flavor is really metallic and astringent. Itís not pleasant on the palate and virtually has no aroma. Terribly disappointing as I am a big fan of nut brown ales!

Draft. Pours dark brown. Tastes and smells very malty. Light body and carbonation. Not very impressive.

sonnycheeba (4105) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 30, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2013 Tap. Pours clear brown with average, creamy, off-white head; decent retention and lacing. Aroma is caramel and cookie malts with supporting floral hops, figs, and raisins. Flavor is sweet malts forward with supporting dark fruit esters, dry hops, light woody notes, and light toast; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

Bulk_Carrier (2537) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2013
The color is dark brown with a somewhat light fluffy looking off-white bubbles that doesnít leave much lacing on the glass. There are some smells of sugar and caramel. There are some faint hops but isnít overly done. A medium body, smooth, and doesnít have an aftertaste, but a dry sweet finish. Overall, this is a very good beer, I would buy this again.
