Hands down the best Nut Brown Ale I’ve ever tried. Sick and tired of "nut" ales that are flavorless and watered down. This ale has flavors of amaretto, almond, roasted pecan, caramel, and chocolate. Also smooth as can be. On draft at the Full Sail Brewery in Hood River, OR. Nice 4 oz sample. I brought a bottle home all the way to Tampa! CaliWill (19) - - FEB 13, 2013
Full Sail has been doing great things. This ale has a lot of toasty malt with hints of caramel and coffee, but not too sweet. Fruity hop aroma and medium bitterness. JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 25, 2008
Nice caramel nose with some fruitiness and light cocoa. Deep crimson in the light looks brown in the glass. A nice eggshell white head and no lacing. Very creamy mouthfeel. Lots of cocoa chocolate in the flavor, nice toffee presence and a crisp, hoppy finish. This is a lovely beer! Thanks André. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2010

Out of the bottle we see a medium brown-colored ale, quite distinct because it lacks any ruby or reddish undertones. Clear. Head is 1 shade past off-white, is rocky, and lingers. Aroma has distinct brown malt notes, nutty, lightly toasty, dusty, savory, woody, forest, hinting at cocoa but not roasted or burnt. Tastes spot-on to what an American Brown Ale should taste like. Balanced sweetness with a dry nuttiness. Carbonation gives it a clean finish with a slightly nutty aftertaste. A fine example of the style.
