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.

jimhilt (2436) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Pours with light brown, two-fingered bubbly head, fades slowly and leaves a good lace. Light-medium carbonation. Light bodied. Deep amber color. Not much of a nose. Starts hoppy finishes very hoppy and bitter. $1.69 for a 12oz bottle from Super 7-Even Raleigh, NC.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
GABF draft. Great head. Clear copper color. Quite nutty palate! Nice and bitter finish. Needs some work on the body though.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2004
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.

Braudog (5932) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2004
Very dark brown with only a very thin head. Stark roasty aroma. Highly bittered nutty/woody flavors with light coffee tinge. Thin.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 16, 2004
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 (1976) - 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.
