Poured into a tulip glass. A medium brown color, almost the same as the color of the label. Two fingers of dirty head that held nicely.
Quite an experience for the nose: nutmeg, alcohol (weird with so low ABV) and grain.
Good malt at first but not sweet. Followed by candy sweet, then a slightly bitter ending.
Silky smooth, low carbonation and medium bodied. What a treat.
Outstanding beer. The texture was incredible. Find some now for yourself.

Nut brown colour, beige head. Aroma of caramel, lemon, candy sugar, toffee, hazelnuts. Taste is light sweet. Very well balanced, with clean flavours. Light body, slick texture, soft to average carbonation.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. The aroma is nutty, caramel, and toffee. The taste is caramel, dried fruit, toffee, and nutty. It’s smooth with a roasty finish. This is one of the best browns out there.

Nutty, malty, not bready. Lightlly hopped, earthy. Pours a dark brown, softly carbonated. Fairly thin. A refreshing fall dinner beer.

Everything that you could want in a brown. This type of beer is quickly becoming one of my favorites, and with the very fair price of these, it could very well become one of my "go to" beers.

Poured from a bottle. Strong hazelnut and caramel aroma. Ruby & brown color with frothy white head that sticks with nice lacing. Toffee and nutty notes that linger to a hoppy profile of herb and earthy with a good bite. Crisp and snappy mouth feel as the malt is kinda thin. One of my favorite nutty browns that I wish we would appreciate more from across the pound.
