5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass
Appearance: pours a thick, sudsy off white head that slowly recedes with moderate lacing. Color is a mostly clear light brown with plenty of streaming carbonation.
Aroma: rich roasted malts, caramel, nuts, earthy hops.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, frothy, with a wet finish.
Flavor: terrific combination of roasted malts, sweet caramel, ripe fruit, and a definite nuttiness. There are some tangy and earthy hops in the backbone.
Overall: a world class beer for sure. Perhaps the standard by which all other English style Nut Brown’s should be judged.
