Has a dark brown color and a malted/nut smell. Taste is somewhat nutty and finishes pretty smooth. Overall this was a pretty good beer, but nothing exceptional. This has to be the best offering from this brewery so far.

When I saw a beer called Pig's Ear, I had to give it a try. I am a fan of the Brown Ales, and this is a pretty good one. The carbonation seems a bit strange, unexplainable. The taste is good, has a nutty flavor to it. Mine was a little warm though, I think it would be better if it was a bit colder.

A big rich flavor, coupled with sweet aftertaste that isn’t overwhelming. I like this much better than Newcastle, but it isn’t as good as Sam Smith’s Nut Brown Ale.
