Medium brown bodies with a moderate whitish head. Nutty, chewy malt profile. Mild, crisp, refreshing. Sessionable American brown ale. Crisp, concise, and delicious.

Transfer from BA review on 3-1-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a light brown color with a small cream colored head. The head fades quite fast to leave a persistent film on the top of the brew and very little lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a roasted malt and caramel smells. Mixed with these aromas are some nutty smells as well as a toffee aroma. Taste – The taste begins with a bready and roasted malt flavor with some caramel sweetness. . As the flavor advances some toffee and nut flavors then hit the tongue mixed with a light fruit taste of apple. In a not so smooth transition the sweeter flavors start to fade more toward the end as a light bitterness of a citrus and earthy nature come to the tongue. In the end a lightly bittered and semi-sweet roasted flavor are left on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather average. A little more body and a little less carbonation would have likely suited the brew better, giving the roasted malt, caramel and nut flavor mix a more decant and suiting feel. Overall – Well it’s not offensive and it is OK, but its lack of smooth transitions and its rather weak mouthfeel would likely prevent me from recommending this one to others. Just OK.

Stuedmaster (244) - Vista, California, USA - APR 9, 2014
Of the four beers in the variety 12 pack I like this one the best. Pours brown with a ruby tinge, slight khaki head gone quickly. Aroma is roasted grain, bread, caramel malt, and toast. Flavor tends toward the sweet side, with a decent amount of bitterness to back it up. Has a lingering bitterness to the aftertaste, quite subtle. Overall, pretty refreshing and decent but nothing special.

Bulk_Carrier (2277) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Bottle dated Dec 2, 2013. She pours a somewhat clear red slightly brown colored body with a one finger white foamy head that lasts for a good two minutes before slowly dieing and leaving a decent looking foamy ring circling the top of the glass. There is a nice little spider web lacing that trickles around the glass. The smell is sweet and nutty malty caramel-ness that comes across in a pleasant "Wintery" sort of way. The taste is mainly sweet and gives off a decent nuttiness; in the aftertaste there’s a decent combination of sweet to nutty to leave a decent finish that ends up coming across somewhat dry. On the palate, it sits about a light to medium on the body to end up coming across fairly sessionable. Carbonation is extremely smooth and adds a slight creaminess to it. Overall, hey Redhook good job with this, I would have this again.

radagast83 (5087) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle. Poured a slightly clear, but mostly dark brown color with a nice small off-white head. Aroma was caramel notes, some nut notes, sweet character along with a touch of bitter chocolates. Flavor was roasted malts, caramel character, nutty. Very mild, some light, bitter roasted notes. Found it more enjoyable than expected.

Beergeek23322 (2493) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2013
August 2011 from bottle. Dark amber with a white head. Caramel, spice, sweet roasted malt aromas. A bit too thin and lacking flavors.

Bif (1563) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 14, 2013
On tap. Served a dark mahogany color with a nice head that fades to nice lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel sweetness and bit of chocolate. Taste of roasted malt, caramel sweetness, some nut and bit of chocolate. Mild bitterness and a finish the is quite dry. Medium body, smooth and somewhat creamy. Has a decent balance. Nice beer for the style but nothing too fancy.

trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - AUG 9, 2013
12oz stubby bottle pours a semi hazy mahogany color with a medium khaki head that leaves good lacing. Smells of caramel and nuts and light barley malts. Tastes of the same things that are in the smell with a touch of chocolate. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with decent carbonation. Overall its pretty ho hum. Just another run of the mill brown ale. I like last years nut brown better.

DrSilverworm (6983) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2013
12oz bottle. Date on bottle reads 12/13/12. Clear red / orange brown color. Not really that brown. Minimal off-white head. Few bits and reaches of lace. Nutty, kind of figgy, caramel malt aroma. Medium body. More crisp carbonation, but not necessarily smooth. Above average sweetness, a bit out of balance. OK brown, not great... Subpar for an American craft brown

foyle (254) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: pours a healthy 2” beige sudsy head that recedes slowly. Good amount of lacing. Color is mostly clear light brown with moderate carbonation. Looks much like a glass of Coca Cola. Aroma: fairly mild aroma. There is fresh water and bread dough with some chocolate malt. Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied, somewhat dry finish. Flavor: medium roasted malts are the dominant flavor with chocolate, coffee, and toffee notes being evident. There is a mild, but noticeable, hop bitterness in the finish.
