3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Cask at Cask and Vine yesterday.
Somewhat hazy light brown color with a decent sized tan head. Caramel butterscotch and light earthy hops with just a touch of nuttiness. Surprised I hadn’t had this before, its not too bad.

I am just getting into drinking different styles of beer and moving beyond the mass produced brand names. This was lighter than I expected but this was smooth, easy to drink and had a good taste. As a style, I guess I was expecting a more robust taste from a Nut Brown Ale, but, again, it was good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: pours with a large light tan head, the beer is a very clear and attractive brown color
Aroma: brown sugar, nuts
Taste: has toasty dark malt sweetness, not a strong sweetness but it's there, nutty, possibly brown sugar, grainy finish
Palate: light mouthfeel, average carbonation, nutty aftertaste
Overall: a light and easy drinking brown ale, has a very subtle sweetness and no bitterness to speak of, not bad

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted and produced fair lacing. Light to moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a soft drinkable beer.

12 oz bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a clear reddish caramel brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a mild nutty character, caramel, some fruity character, a little off note, thin, watery, just not something I would revisit.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle, thanks to Paul & Jamie. Shared. Clear red orange brown color. Thin off-white head, some decent ridges and ropes of lace. Strange, kind of funky nose, little skunky. Some caramel, nuttiness in the flavor, hint of milk chocolate. Sort of a bigger rastringent bitterness here, moderate sweet. Medium body. Kind of slick texture, lighter carbonation, mild rough bite to it. Seems like mild infection, not sure though. I poured myself ~3oz of this, that was plenty.

12oz bottle to cervoise. Pours brown with beige soda head. Aroma is scarce with the tiniest bit of nut, biscuit and raisin. Taste is astringent citrus bitter with nut malt backbone and some unsweetened cocoa. Meh.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Meh. Just an average beer at best. Slightly nitty with some roasted malt notes. Pours brown with a thin tan head. Had out of a bottle from home from a beer of the month club. Terrible choice dudes
