3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the Titletown brewpub in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Pours a clear copper colored brew with a thick off-white head that has some excellent lacing and retention. Aroma of roasted dry Munich style malt, a hint of crystal hops, and roasted nuts. Taste is more character than its aroma with flavors of roasted caramel malt, roasted nuts, a hint of spiced tea and toffee. Finish is well balanced with a light lingering bitterness and roasted nutty aftertaste. A fine example of a nut brown ale without the dark brown color.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I had this several times over the course of two days. Always have been a big fan of the Fat Tire. I thought Dave hit this spot on. Clear amber colour with a frothy top. Instant biscuit malts and french roast coffee hit you right away. Taste is creamy and pleasent, not too sweet. Mild and satisfying on the palate with a long satisfying finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Titletown. Pours a brownish amber color with thin off-white head. Aroma is of toasted malt, caramel, and sweet breads. Taste is of toasted malt, caramel, roasted nuts, and biscuits. Finish is clean and the biscuit flavor really shows up in the swallow. Not my favorite style, but definitely better then Fat Tire which is what this beer is obviously trying to replicate. Dave and the crew, keep up the good work!
