COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally brewed using the Yorkshire square system of fermentation, the nut brown ale calls the North of England home. A hint of hazelnut, a dash of rich caramel and a sprinkle of chocolate malt all intertwine with the flowery bouquet of Willamette hops to produce a round-bodied ale worthy of its homeland. Take a leaf out of our buddy Cyril the red squirrels book, and enjoy a Dundee Nut Brown Ale in your own drey. (Drey = a squirrels nest. See, you learned something too.)

AirForceHops (6450) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Bottle from craft winter mix pack. Used my Newcastle glass. Great eye appeal on this one. Thick, full, frothy white head that laced the glass in sheets. Steady carbonation. Has a nutty, caramel aroma. Taste is similar with weak hazelnut as the main flavor. Light hop in the finish. Nothing here is going to impress too much but, it is a decent drinkable brown ale.

Patrickctenchi (6207) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Clear, dark brown/ruby...tan head. Aroma is woody, caramel... Taste is pleasantly nutty, a little chocolate, slightly sweet. A little tingle of hop towards the end. Pretty average...but easily worth the 12$ for the 12-pack sampler.

kramer (6034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear light brown body under a fizzy of-white head that had pretty decent retention. The nose is a little too husky and grainy but theres some decent light nuttiness and light coffee as well. The flavor is a bit thin with a little too much huskiness as well. A little bit of chocolate and nuttiness, but the huskiness overpowers it too much. Finishes with a grainy note and some lingering caramel sweetness. The body is thin as well with a bit of clinginess on the finish. Not exactly a wonderful example of the style.

thedm (5887) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Large foamy fine long lasting tan head. Transparent typically carbonated cola brown. Weak nut brown malt aroma. Very nice nut brown malt flavor. Quaffable mild tingly start to finish.

cheap (5425) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Froma bottle much better than expected. A brown beer with a clean smell. Easy going. Fairly mild and well behaved, unlike other dundees Im familiar with. Some rope and leather in there but not over the top. Goodly amount of co2. Overall a decent beer experience, btter than expected for this brand.

Cybercat (5244) - Georgia, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Comes out of the bottle a clear, bubbly chestnut with a fairly thick and fluffy pale wheat head. Malty aroma is not strong but has nice caramel and nutty hints. Satisfying, if not outstanding, flavor has a malty core and hints of hazelnut (no surprise) and caramel. Texture is about average in the fizz and fullness departments. If no great shakes, still tasty and enjoyable.

Aurelius (5129) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Sweet, light roasted nut aroma. Clear, medium brown. Tipsy squirrel buddy on the label. Fairly bitter, lightly sweet, medium roast. Slightly heavy mouthfeel. Better than some of Dundees style interpretations, still theres not much to commend this as a craft brew. Goes a little sweet at the end as it warms. ABC Liquors, Betton, part of a mix pack.

hotstuff (4902) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2014
Rated on 10-17-2011 (Bottle) This beers appearance is a medium sized smooth, fizzy ivory head with short retention, copper transparent body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, nutty, light chocolate, and a suggestion of hops. The flavor is malt, chocolate and nutty. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light bodied. This beer has a weak and boring flavor. It lacks character and is a beer that is not on my want to drink again list.

ChainGangGuy (4826) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Appearance: Pours out a clear, dark garnet-hued body with a sensibly sized, ivory-hued head.

Smell: Sweetish, malty notes of semi-sweet chocolate, pale malts, toasted caramel, and the addition of hazelnut over a thin dried herb backdrop.

Taste: Pale malts, chocolaty malts, and caramel-tasting malts melding together, along with the dash of hazelnut flavoring, to give an overall nutty taste, as one might expect and rightfully demand given a cheeky squirrel on the front label. Lightly spicy, faintly floral hops with a low bitterness. Sweetish, still reasonably nutty on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Fairly smooth mouthfeel.

Overall: A pleasing nut brown ale; simple, but solidly structured. While its not quite a Rogue Hazelnut Nectar, the entire Dundee 12-pack mixer cost me only a few quarters more than a six-pack of Rogues.

chinchill (4442) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 2, 2013
12 oz bottle in a pint glass. Very clear brown. Starts with a decent tan head, but this retreats rapidly, leaving little more than a ring but good lacing on the glass. Mouthfeel: well-chosen carbonation. Medium-thin body. Beyond crisp, this one is a bit harsh and acidic feeling. Nice, unusually dry (for style and ABV) finish. Aroma: mild: toasted malt; nutty and lightly spicy. Taste: a tad light for style; no serious flaws; nice dry nutty finish, perhaps reflecting the "natural hazelnut flavors". O - Not a typical brown ale, but overall an average quality brown ale. Very good value as part of Dundee craftpack.
