slowrunner77 (11912) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 7, 2016
They call this an English brown. Kinda somewhere in between an amber, Irish red and brown. Sweetish malts and toast with light hops. Kinda boring but not bad.

rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 27, 2015
Draught at the Hop Nuts Brewing, Las Vegas, NV. Clear reddish mid-brown colour with a small off-white head. Nutty and toasted malty aroma with a lot of sweetness. The flavour is sweetness, nuts, nougat and malt. Passable brown ale. A bit thin though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
