On tap at Riverside Brewpub. Brown with next to no head. Aroma of toffee, nuts and mild hops. Taste is nutty and caramelly with toasted malts and a nutty finish. Amongst the myriad of mediocrity at Riverside, this one strives to be King Champion like Lloyd Dobler in Say Anything.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours too light for a brown ale. Lacks in aroma. Overwhelming hazelnut syrup flavor and lacking the bitterness to match.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
LIght chestnut color with a taller off-tan head. Dry malts and somewhat nutty aromas that are appropriate. Hints of wood, dark chocolate and dark caramel. Flavors of toffee coated hazelnuts and lightly roasted malt. Not a bad nut brown.

Riverside’s most recent Brewmaster’s Choice is a fine example of a nut brown ale. Transparent mahogany, light brown lacings around glass. Little actual head save for murky web on top of beer in glass. Slight nutty aroma. Flavor was as malty as one would expect a brown ale to be, good roasty taste. More of an English style brown than an American brown, I can’t complain about this one. Definitely one of their better Brewmaster’s Choice ales lately.
