Pours brown with ruby tones as well. Thin beige head. Malty, fruity aroma. Not much of this carries through to the flavor. Hazelnut, coffee, vanilla, and toffee in the flavor. Kind of thin on the malt in the flavor for a Nut Brown.

650ml bottle from Utobeer. Pours dark brown with reddish hues. Aroma is suprisingly smoky with sweet malt and nuts. Flavour is sweet with unpleasent sourness and some stale malt character. There is some sort of nut evident but the beer is dominated by unpleasentness. Meh!

Probably the best of the micros. Still not that great. This is pretty much a glorified Newcastle.

Bottle. Deep ruby brown with a thin beige head. Smells nutty and seriously malty with a hint of smokiness. Malty sweet flavors of hazelnut, toffee, chocolate, some coffee, and again more hazelnut coming up huge in the finish. Hop bitterness is there to attempt to balance this out, not an easy task, but done well enough to smooth this one out. Plenty of mouthfeel and ligering dessert like sweetness. Excellent after dinner beer-let it sit and warm up during dinner for maximum flavor at dessert time.

Yum! Pours like I want a brown ale to pour. Smells malty in a powerful way. Hazelnut (obviously), Spree candy, vanilla, and whole wheat were all invited to the party in my mouth. Palate is perfectly balanced rich smoothness with just the right amount of carbonation and subtle, supportive hops. Cinishes clean, sweet, and tasty. I like it!

Off white head, nice retention. Heavy red color with brown accents. Nice malt aroma with a deep nuttiness. Little to no hop presence in the aroma. Full mouthfeel, almost like a latte. Malty nose with nut notes, continues subtley until an immense burst of hazelnut in the finish. Another very coffee-like sensation, having that hazelnut flavor linger with some malt backing. This beer really tastes like a smooth beer hazelnut latte. Surprisingly refreshing.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2008 Second time around with a head to head match up with New Glarus Nut Brown I was stunned that this beer had no body. Good nut flavor but no substace. I would not, not drink it if you offered it to me though!!

I sampled the 1 pt. 0.9 fl. oz. bottle, which pours a slightly cloudy, dark copper colored body with a small, quickly vanishing tan head; there was no appreciable lacing. The aroma is rich with nuts and chocolate, while the palate entry is lightly sweet. Mid-palate also reveals nuts and milk chocolate, but also vanilla and caramel. The finish is malty with only light hops. This is a medium-bodied ale that is best enjoyed at 50F-60F.
