COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Brown Ale has a touch of nuttiness provided by our good friends Mr. and Mrs. Victory and Munich Malt. The addition of Northern Brewer, Cascade, and Willamette hops smooth this beer out to create an incredibly drinkable Brown Ale.

Very dark brown with only a very thin head. Stark roasty aroma. Highly bittered nutty/woody flavors with light coffee tinge. Thin.

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.

MrRomero (1974) - Nolanville, USA - APR 16, 2004
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.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2004
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.

Beaver (1282) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 12, 2003
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.

lemonlovr (190) - Orland Park, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2003
Rich aroma, slightly hoppy flavor. Deep brown color. Not to impressed with SKA overall.

Brownish; Head was faint; Typical nose for the style. Slight coffee hint? Bit of dry hops. Really like a weak porter.

Nuffield (3667) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2005 Side by side with the Boyne River Brown Ale. Chocolatey and malty, clear brown, thin ring of head. Musty barnyard flavors, like when I was at the Iowa State Fair a couple of weeks ago. Average to slightly below average -brown ale. (original rating: 6-3-7-3-11, 18 Aug 2003) // Re-rate (25 June 2005): I’m surprised at how thin this feels, and while there is a sufficient amount of caramel and toast, it is pretty hollow at the same time, with a lack of interesting flavors right through the front end to the finish. No better now than it was before, if not worse in my estimation.
