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!

Draft to taster. Looks good; a transparent copper with thin off-white lacing. Smells of caramel and hazelnut with a sweet, malty backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Mild hop aroma. tasty brown ale with hits of hazelnuts and chocolate. pretty decent a little too carbonated though leaving it tasting a little thin. Still good though.

Nice brown color, mild aroma with a light chocolate finish. A nice summer ale for those that prefer our nut browns and stouts over lighter wheats and lagers.

Thus is an exemplary version of a brown ale. Nit overly malty. Nice chocolate notes. Light brown color with vanishing head.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Limpido color rubino con un velo di schiuma beige. Al naso sentori di nocciole, mandorle tostate, avena e zucchero caramellato; gusto equilibrato, dolciastro con nocciole, malto abbrustolito, riso soffiato e un velo di toffee, finale persistente, amarognolo e gentilmente luppolato. Corpo medio-lieve, frizzantina, setosa, dissetante e piacevole: molto buona!

Bottle from Market of Choice, Eugene. Pours a medium brown, slight tan head. Aroma is malty, with only a slight sweetness and nuttiness to be had. Body is medium, slightly rounded and creamy, finish is very sweet and nutty.
