Sweet nutty aroma. Dry palate. Thin and a bit fizzy. Not a bad sessionable beer.

A nutty, bready lager that isnt so much complex as itis muddled. The flavors don’t really come thru like they should. This may be due to the effect of lagering. The flavor profile would have possibly been better had this beer been an ale.

Suttree (5044) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Clear brown, spongy beige head. Very faint aroma - maybe some caramel and toast, I guess. Sweet and nutty flavor, plus some lightly tart fruit notes. Dry-ish finish.

A - Pours a fairly clear amber-red color with a nice finger of slightly creamy off-white head. The retention is okay, and it reduces to layer with some lacing. S - Aroma is overall sweetly with a malty backbone. Also a little bit or nuttiness and earthiness mixed in. T - Starts off with a building sweet carmel malt flavor. Through the middle, a mild nut flavor and a slight hop flavor mix in. At the end the sweet malt flavor comes back and lingers for a while. Overall, fairly balanced. M - Medium-light bodied with a medium-low amount of carbonation. There are some elements of creaminess at times but also a watery feeling at times. D - Pretty drinkable. Nothing to blow you away here, but the taste is fairly balanced and smooth. Overall, the beer is very smooth and fairly refreshing.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - FEB 24, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a deep copper color with a fluffy, light-tan head. Aroma is earthy, mild roasted malts with floral hops and a touch of brown sugar. The flavor is smooth with the taste coming from the roasted nuts and malts and a bit of hops that kicks in through the finish. Medium body with moderate carbonation.
