3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Weak roasted maltiness in the aroma; deep amber brown color, nice beige head; roasty and nutt with a hint of vanilla and just a splash of earthy hops in the finish; medium body and smooth mouth feel; fairly traditional, but a bit too much raw roasty notes and less nutty; good overall and itís good to see places still making a solid brown ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ brewpub. Deep, deep red-brown. Caramel aroma. Soft, gentle palate. Nutty flavors. Integrated diacetyl. Could use a more assertive malt character but otherwise itís just fine. Refreshing, juicy with nice bready finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bright nut brown colour. Nutty aroma with a hint of diacetyl. Tastes the same - maybe with a bit of harshness on the palate. I guess itís okay for a brown.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not a nut brown fan, and this wasnít that great anyway. A little too sweet. All malt and a little watery. Overall boring and not something to drink a lot of.
