Reminded me why nut brown ale is my favorite type of beer. This was excellent. Great color, nice head and aroma, great taste - sweet, but not too sweet. The last few nut brown's that I've tried haven't been all that great, but this definitely was.

Had this beer on 4/7/1999. Color is a deep dark rich amber with good carbonation and head. Aroma is sweet with a rich malt scent. Taste is malty and robust. It starts with a medium body that before it even goes down is showing signs of maltyness. As it goes down smoothly and a bit creamy this maltyness builds up. The finish is a rich roasted malt flavor which caries a slight sweetness followed by a gentle hop bitterness and flavor. Overall I think its excellent, it may be the best Brown Ale Iíve ever had and one of the most well balanced brews Iíve come across.

Underrated. A very smooth brown ale, unadultered. Similar to Newcastle. This ale does it right by the old tradition of nut brown ales.

Yes, I know Budweiser owns a share of this company. But the beer appeals to me, nonetheless. Itís fizzy, and somewhat light and a tad sweet.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2004 One of my new favorites. Looks and tastes wonderful. I am a big fan of Newcastle Brown Ale and in my opinion this beer is better. Well done.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2006 Deep brown and beautiful on the pour with a frothy head of thick foam. Nice malty sweetness intially with enough hops to balance it a bit. Disappointing finish though, with an unpleasant sticky bittersweet aftertaste left on the tongue. Best with food that can cleanse the palate of the residue. Re-rate on 2/16/05. Cleaner finish now. Offensiveness gone. Not bad for the price. Rerate on 2/14/06 - Wow. They really got this beer right this year. Excellent, excellent malt with fresh fruit notes and a kiss of hops. Full bodied with a fantastic clean finish.

Really smooth, small head. Flavor and finish is pretty similar to the other redhook beers, but is not as strong.

It says nut brown but I didnít pick up a nutty taste too much...which is a good thing. This is a highly drinkable, pleasant ale.

Good solid easy-to-drink brew. Malt flavor is complimented by the hoppiness. Iíll be glad to drink it again.

Smooth ALE, creamy palate, quite tasty, different than trad. brown Ales. Bitter/creamy aftertaste original, bit underhopped.
