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 it’s not quite a Rogue Hazelnut Nectar, the entire Dundee 12-pack mixer cost me only a few quarters more than a six-pack of Rogue’s.
The aroma is surprisingly alcoholic and very sweet with syrup, chocolate, and nuts. The appearance is medium brown with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma with a medicinal syrup in it. The palate is average. Overall pretty average. thegreenrooster (4396) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 28, 2011
Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is malty and a little bit of roasted nuts. Flavor is the same starts out with some malts then comes a bit of roasted nuts. Like most of this brewers beers its kinda watery but cheap. Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - MAY 19, 2013

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear copper with a thin tan head. Very mild aroma, some light caramel and malts. Flavor is very mild as well. Not much in the way of toasted nuts or big malts. Just very watery and light.

Pour is a dark brown and translucent with a large tan head. Aroma is malty with some roasted nuts. Flavor is the same. Starts out with some malts then comes a bit of roasted nuts. The body is a little thin, but it goes down easy and tastes decent. puboflyons (3431) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 19, 2011
It pours dark amber with excellent clarity and a small but lingering head. The aroma is average to above average with malts, nuts, and sugar. The body falls in the thin to medium range. The taste is also average to above average for the Nut Brown style with a slightly more presumptuous bitter bite on the tail end. Not a bad beer on the whole. jb (3250) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 4, 2012
An attractive orange brown fall color with thick head. Rocky thick head. Yeah it has a nutty smell and taste, with a bit of spice and the general lack of complexity that characterizes this style. Chudwick (3205) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - MAR 5, 2012
12oz bottle - pours clear brown with off-white head and nice lacing. Nose is caramel. Flavor is a tiny bit nutty and adds floral hops. taste is a little sweet and a bit more bitter. Body is medium and texture is watery.to thin. Medium finish that is almost dry. Again, good in flavor, but modest for the style. Palidor19 (3188) - Brandon, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2011
its very good. there is nothing wrong with this beer in any aspect but it does have anything exemplary. medium malts and nutty flavor with a slight hoppy taste. a great drinking beer for the days off.
