3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a reddish amber with a small light tan head. Nose is malt with a hint of sweetness. Nice and creamy on the palate, the taste is nutty and malty with very little bitterness. A hint of sweetness and a nuance of hops on the finish. Pairs well with many food products but especially with nuts and pretzels.

Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest on 08/09/2014: Clear brownish-amber color with a medium thin foamy off-white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Roasted nuts and malt in the nose. Light body with flavors of roast malt, peanuts and slight hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Just average overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pouring dark reddish, maybe light brown, amber. Very small wispy white head, minimally lasting. Aroma is malty, sweet. Caramel. Toffee. Bready. Fruity. Light body, perhaps a bit thin. Finish is fairly dry, nutty. OK, but unexciting. Easy drinking enough.

Deep in the north woods. Tap brew poured into a pitcher with an iced miller light can to keep the beer super chill. So chill. Twangy smooth nutted brown.

Easy to drink with a smooth sweetness, it has only a bit of a bite on the end and a general pleasantness to it. Went well with a club sandwich.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy medium brown color with a great thick head of foam. Has mostly a malty scent with a little nutty scent. Has a mild taste of roasted malts and bold nutty taste with an slightly above average texture. Something local and interesting to try, but in comparison to other nut brown ales this one was a little thin in it’s texture and still needing a little something more in it’s taste.
