3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a semi-dark brown color with an off white foamy head that fell off at a decent pace. Light stringy sliding lace.
The aroma had some sweet and roasted nuts up front and then a light dose of caramel/toffee malts flowing underneath. Light earthy hop.
The flavor was moderately sweet with the roast of the nuts and malts coming through fairly nice. Slight milk chocolate smoothness rolling through the aftertaste and on into the finish.
The palate was almost medium bodied with a pretty good sessionability about it. ABV felt good and it came across super smooth rolling all around my tongue.
Overall, really super nice brown ale well worthy of having again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark brown from tap with a thin white head. There’s a slight hint of malt on the nose. Bigger caramel flavor on the tongue but not much else. Finish is clean.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep dark amber/brown in color. Little head or carbonation. Flavor/Aroma is grainy with a dollop of sweet chocolate. A bit thicker/more flavorful than their amber that I just had. Slight to moderate hops to balance, grassy I think.

This was served on tap at the pub and was apparantly on nitro. It had a thick tight foamy head that lasted. A nice chocolately charachter with a nice mild smoothness and almost no hop presence. An excellent dessert beer to finish off a meal.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
They called this a nut brown, so I will rate it as such. The color was very deep brown with minimal off-white head. The aroma was nutty, providing almond, hazelnuts, walnuts, some roasty malt, toffee, and slight molasses notes. The palate was on the dense side and very complex, with more intermingling nuts than a party at Turbo’s house. I got the almond, walnut, and hazelnut flavors, plus a solid roasty malt, some chocolate, and slight molasses hints. I growlered this, and found it to be excellent.

Pours a clean, brown body with a small white head. The aroma is carmel, nuts, and dust. Flavors were walnuts, salt, pepper, mild carmel, and some mild earthy hops. One of the better browns I’ve had.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bube’s Nut Brown Ale pours to a beautiful, bright, chest nut color with a thick and creamy white head, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose on this beer is very inviting with good aromas of sweet malt and nuts. The palate is soft on the tongue with lots of good sweet malty and nutty flavors. Bube’s Nut Brown finishes with more sweet malt and nuts, then ends with just enough hop bitterness to take the cloying edge off this beer.
This is a very well done, soft, sweet and nutty brown ale. It is a very food friendly beer, and would match well with a number of dishes on the Bube’s menu. I enjoy a nice pint of this one at the bar relaxing with friends, and soaking in the wonderful atmosphere at Bube’s. If you ever find yourself in Lancaster County PA, a trip to Bube’s Brewery in Mount Joy, is well, well worth the time and effort.

Earthy and nutty, this is a good example of the style. Slight toffee overtones, this beer is well balanced with the earthiness balancing the bittering hops throughout. Even keeled with a musty earthy aroma and finish.
