3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the tap room (as Nut Brown Ale). The beer is a dark brown color with a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted nuts, malt and mild hops. Light-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, nuts and hops. The finish is sweet with a grainy and nutty aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a mostly clear amber/brown color with a half inch off-white head that went away quickly. There’s a small amount of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is bready malt, toffee, nuts and some herbal hops. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there’s the addition of some honey. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit coating with a moderate amount of carbonation. I think this is a solid brew, it’s worth trying.
