3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2013 Citrus-y hop aroma and flavor. Very little malt aroma... Sweetish malt flavor, with some light caramel and toast. A little nutty flavor in finish and aftertaste. Hop flavor is pretty nice, but thereís a somewhat harsh bitterness in aftertaste.
10/29/13: Getting more malt aroma: Mostly toasted malt. Toasted flavor seems more prominent, too... Not noticing the bitter aftertaste.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml bottle. Smells a little old--caramel malt past its prime, perfume, cooked vegetables. Pours clear brown-orange with a dissipating beige head that falls into a ring of big-bubbly foam. Taste is a tad better; itís bittersweet, roasty. Iím not getting any nuttiness in aroma or taste. Not good. I donít see an expiration or born-on, but I would bet this is pretty old.

Bottle thanks to Secret Santa! Pours a clear deep amber with a brown hue and a grayish brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a decent amount of nuttiness supported by grain and bread notes. Flavor begins starts with bread and nuttiness and has a slight growing sweetness through the finish.

bottle - Pours dark brown with a lingering tan head and lacing. It smells of toasted caramel malt and taste the same with minimal hops bitterness and a lingering toasted finish. Itís medium bodied, robust, and overall a good brown ale.

Big booming head. Possible infection. Nuttiness is there but this is a fairly middle of the road beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Picked up at the State store in Riverton where the cool looking 50cl bottle pours with a clear brown body that has copper hues and supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a decent mix of malts and roasted malts and a dash of biscuit malts and nuttiness. The taste delivers sweet malts, roasted malts, nuttiness and then a bit of drying roasted malt astringency. To midway a mix of mineral water, a spice note and then slivers of ripe cherry dark fruity esters surface and help take this to the finish. Decent.

Bottle from Utah Wine store. Pours brown with an inch of khaki foam. Has a bit of nuttiness on the nose. Iím getting more hop bitterness than anything on the tongue. Finishes dry. I prefer my nut brown ales to be, you know, nuttier.
