(Draught) Pours an amber-brown body with a moderate creamy off-white head. Aroma of nuts, mustiness, cocoa, and caramel. Flavor of caramel, nuts, toffee, and cocoa. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2009
On tap at the downtown Dane. Poured clear, deep coppery-brown with a short cap of white head. The aroma was soft and sweet with redder fruits and some caramel present.. not much hop presence, nor was there a whole lot else going on. The flavor found sweet caramel and nutty notes at the core accented by just a touch of earth.. sticky finish with light dry bitterness. Lighter-bodied and dry overall on the palate, with a hint of tanginess.. for the most part very boring and serviceable. nuplastikk (6289) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 24, 2012
On tap at downtown location. Filtered amber-tan. Steady, lacy head. Medium bodied, sweet mellow malty tones. Soapy hop bitterness balances the one-dimensional malt tones. Creamy caramel finish. Tolerable, but amateurish and unimpressive. JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - NOV 16, 2009
Oxidized copper color with a moderate light beige head. Aromas of caramel, toasted malt and nuts, and a dark fruit and doughy backdrop. Beernuts come to mind with flavors of caramel and picnic peanuts. Bits of earthy hops in the late middle to finish. Touches of roasted malt in the finish as well. Standard brown ale.

On draught during Great Taste of Midwest 2009 in Madison, Wisconsin as Organic Nut Brown Ale at the brewery booth. Pours a semi-clear brownish amber colored brew with a fast dissolving off-white head. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, some honey, a touch of maple and chocolate. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonated with flavors of caramel and chocolate malt, some flowery hops and a touch of roasted nuts. Finish is semi-sweet with a malt and toffee aftertaste and very little bitterness. Nice for an organic brown ale.

Shaker served at Doty St. with a fairly clear, brown color, modest, light tan foam to the head, and faint streaks and spots of lacing. The aroma was lightly toasted, almost a little roasted, nutty, with maybe some cocoa. The flavor added some smooth malt, and average bitterness. Light and fairly balanced notes across the board. Tasty. SrSilliGose (3331) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 25, 2009

On tap at East side Dane, pours a light clear brown with a thin soapy white head, the aroma is of slight malt and caramel, the flavor is of very light malt and a subtle sweetness of caramel, not really impressed by this one overall, too bland and boring for my liking. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2010
[Tap] Sampled back in mid-December. Pours a hazy brown color without much head. Aroma of hazelnut and caramel. Taste is of light chocolate, brown sugar and some modest hopping towards the end. Doesn’t offer a whole lot taste-wise, but decent for an organic brew. phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2010
On tap last night at the Dane: Poured a dark mahogany colour with a large tan head. Aroma was instantly nutty- so clean, so clear to my nose, so-NATURAL ! Taste was decent, light and creamy with nutty and toffee notes. A little bit of coffee perhaps. Otherwise an average beer from the GD."
