3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
GABF draft. Great head. Clear copper color. Quite nutty palate! Nice and bitter finish. Needs some work on the body though.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, light brown body, big, creamy, fuzzy head.
Aroma:nice and nutty, maybe woody, too, touches of cocoa, perhaps...
Taste: very mild, small, no, no hops, good malt, solid body, but ultimately thin. Little texture, too, with a scant finish, nothing stands out, nothing really pleases, either. Which, darn it, is what I look for in a brew, not just inoffensive drinkability, which this provides aplenty. Seems to fall into the "mild ale" style of English brown ale, and that should be warning enough for me. Perfectly ordinary, this is, and that makes it a bit of a let-down, for I did enjoy their porter pretty well and still look forward to more.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nuts, caramel. It's Brown. Moderately sweet flavor becomes a lightly bitter finish. Somewhat sour aftertaste. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: nutty and brown...that's pretty much it.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours light bronw with a thin head. Not much aroma. Thin malts. Taste is thin- light fruitiness and maybe a little nut. Not much else.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden-brown body. Malty, nutty nose and a malty, woody flavor with some distinct and off-putting sourness. Boring beer with too much acidity for a brown ale. This beer would have scored at least one extra point with me if they called it Busta Nut Brown. So close.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
The Buster Nut poured a dark reddish brown, with a smallish fizzy head that quickly went down to a small top. It has a very nice roasted malt aroma with chocolate and coffee mixed in - almost like a porter. The taste was kind of bland - malty and acidic up front with a sweetish malty finish. As it warms, more malty nuttiness comes out. It had a kind of watery mouthfeel. Overall, a decent drinking brown, but nothing special.
