Bottle from GBBF 2012, drunk at home. Clear deep brown/red colour. Thin beige head. Itís a brown ale. Some brown malts. Not much hop. Not very interesting, but no bad flavours. Fine, if a little uninspiring. It went down pretty fast though. Not surprising as it was the first beer of the evening.

Buster Nut Brown has a fairly translucent, amber-brown color with a very light brown head... not all that great looking in the glass, but I wonít hold that against it. Itís nutty in the nose with a definite yeast character that adds a certain waft to the nose. Iím not at all sold on this, but still... Iíll give it a chance.
In the mouth, itís better than the appearance and aroma let on. Thin, yes, but fortunately the nuttiness isnít overpowering and all flavors are in check with the beerís slim weight. Otherwise, thereís only a faint whisper of roasted malt. Overall, itís pretty flat on the palate. Much lighter than most nut brown ales. Although not offensive, itís actually kinda disappointing.

Bottle from BR R - taking that for Beer Revolution. Probably in the frig for 6 months. Pours clear but dark ruddy brown with a slight beige head. Aroma of brown ale type malt. A little hop spice too - maybe even a hint of cinnamon. Med minus body. Itís a bit sweet - not very hoppy. Thereís some lightly greasy nuttiness. And itís finishing very lightly astringent and dry. Something changed there. Fairly tasty.

This was on draft last winter. A decent brown ale with a nut roast and sweetness from malts. Brown pour and off white head overall. It is ok.

Aroma is nutty and caramel. Pours a transparent dark brown with a small off white head. Taste is nutty, chocolate, and maple. Good beer.

Pours an amber brown with an off-white head. The taste is malts and some nuttiness but it's all up front. The finish is carbonation. A drinkable beer.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
This nut brown poured a cloudy very deep amber/red colour with a minimal, tan coloured head. Very soapy looking. To the nose there are scents of ripe fruit, brown sugar, wine and alcohol. First sip was thin and lifeless. Probably the worst nut brown Iíve ever had. Too bad really since I love Ska! Anyways, tastes of old books and over ripe fruit along with vermouth/old wine top it off. Finish is like chewing old paper with that old weak homebrew wine on the palate lingering. Hopefully I just picked up a bad bottle.

Fudge, peanut, and walnut nose. CLear brown, no head. Thin mouthfeel, little body. Maple syrup flavor, sweet. little hop flavor. Nutty throughout. More of a SEBA, given its color and lack of hops.

Bought this mostly because of the artwork on the bottle, but really liked the taste as well.
