COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic English style nut brown ale. Caramel, Victory, Belgian aromatic and special roasted malts are combined to create a nutty, warm character.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 9, 2008
Poured a coppery brown color with a very thin white head. The aroma was lightly roasted malt and some sugary sweetness. Some grainy corn aroma snuck in too. The flavor was decent. Light sweetness over roasted malt. Watery mouthfeel but finished clean. Typical microbrew brown ale.

I found this beer to be quite passable. Not too sweet (cant stand sugary browns), and nice nutty flavor. Inoffensive.

On tap at the brewpub. Aroma is light roast. Taste is pretty straight forward brown ale. Nothing to really love or hate about this one.

Terminus (3231) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - OCT 9, 2006

vyvvy (3949) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 7, 2006
Sampled at Augusta Bottoms Beer Festival 2006. Pours brown with a small light tan head. The aroma has lots of butterscotch and light roasted malt. The body is light and the carbonation is as well. The taste is toasted and buttery. The finish is spicy and sour. Not a good version of the style or up to the others of the brewery that were sampled at the fest.

csbosox (1223) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JUL 5, 2006
On tap. Maroon color. Nutty, caramel aroma. Taste is malty, nutty, and caramelly. Tasty, malt dominated beer.

heemer77 (5099) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 20, 2006
This poured a ligh brown and copper color with a light khaki colored head. The aroma was nasty. It had spoiled werid rotting pecans. There was also mold and faint tea. The taste was old coffee with musty sweat and apple core. This was pretty bad all around.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - FEB 10, 2006
Served with a light ring of foam. Clear chestnut color. Fruity, nutty, toast, and caramel aromas. Aromas carry over to to the flavor, nutty and toasty. Little if any hop character. Medium body and finishes sweet. One of there best offerings.

tomciccateri (995) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - SEP 5, 2005
On draught at the brewpub. An evenly-balanced brew with the dark malts tilting the flavor balance toward the dry side but a reasonable "nuttly" character offering a distinctive flavor twist. Light-to-medium in body, it was clean and one of Gordon’s more flavorful brews.

Braudog (5627) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2005
A dark chocolate color. Starts smooth and drinkable with a very light nut character and middle of the road roastiness. Unfortunately, this is the best they had to offer.
