From a bottle. A clear medium brown body with a bone color head. Head had great retention and decent lace. Aroma had a nice balance of mildly sweet caramel malts and a slight roasted quality. A gentle nutty aroma and there was a slightly off putting medicinal aroma. Flavor was well balanced with a nice sweet malt flavors and a mild nutty flavor. No real hops. Although the beer seemed two-dimensional it was still enjoyable. Easy to drink and would make a great session ale.

ben4321 (4551) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 5/19/13

Aroma: The aroma is sweet and malty, with some bread malts, fruit, and a bit of toffee
Appearance: Pours a muddy brown color, slight orange hue, small beige head and drippy lace
Flavor: The flavor is medium-plus sweet, itís more bready early, but the fruitiness comes out later on
Palate: The body is on the light side of medium, with a smooth feel, and a slightly astringent finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was an alright, but just a little flawed beer. Thereís some good stuff in here for sure, but it just isnít quite there.

chinchill (2774) - 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.

reebtogi (4621) - 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 (1180) - 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.
