Draft at the brewpub. Darker orange color, tan head, streaky lace. Nutty and sweet malt. Moderate mouthfeel. Okay.

I had it on tap. It pours a reddish brown with almost no head. The aroma was medicinal and earthy. It was faint and not very pleasant. The taste was nuts, earthy bitterness, and a medicinal hint. This tasted off. I wouldn’t recommend it.

Drank from a pint glass poured from a growler purchased at the Long Valley Brew Pub. Has a nice sweet, nutty aromas. Pours a nice reddish brown with some light beige head. The sweetness of this beer is a bit overpowering.

Pours a copper, with minimal tan head. Aroma is nutty, caramel and some earthyness. Taste is dull, right on the cusp of being sweet but doesn’t. Medium mouthfeel. Overall its decent and drinkable.

Draught at the pub. Orange-amber body with a short white head. Light yeasty funk, perhaps some sweat from the hops. Watery body, bitter, I’d say this were the same beer as the amber if not for the slight uptick in fruitiness. Or the Nut Brown was poured into the Amber glass and they hoped I wouldn’t notice.

a lighter brown pour without much head... a decent attempt at a brown ale but nothing great, a watered down version of a Newcastle Brown Ale, but not even close to the same flavor or quality

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2007
Clear, rather pale amber – surprisingly. The small white cover leaves a lasting ring. Highly toasty, almost Vienna-like malts with white almond notes showing through as leafy hops come and cut through the rather high sweetness level. Brief finish, refreshing carbonation, but slightly sloppy texture.

2.2
argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Clear copper body with beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, nut. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, nut, light chocolate. Low carbonation, light-medium body.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 6, 2007
On tap at the brew pub. Pours a translucent amber with golden highlights…not brown and it had small bubbly lightly off white head. Aroma of light nuts, some toasted malts, caramel and citrus. Aroma on the light side. Flavor of lightly toasted malts, some nuts, citrus, hop flavor and light hop bitterness. Not sure how this won GABF in 2004 and 2005 in the brown ale category…doesn’t seem to fit the style exactly.

Though the nose carried a nice nutty aroma, none of the earthiness typical of the style was apparent in the flavor. The profile was very similar to their amber, but with a less hoppy finish. Rather watery and overall unsatisfying.
