A solid brown ale by New Glarus. Not much going on here. Subtle hops, subtle malt. Roasted, slightly burnt aftertaste.

A bit of an off putting after taste, but still a respectable brown ale that has some good roasted elements.

This is a nice solid brown ale. This will remind you of your first bottle of Newcastle when you were a kid, but without the awful skunked smell/taste.

A solid ale. Pours a clear brown. Aromas are roasted nuts and malts. Flavors are toasty malts. A bit of sweetness but mostly roasty.

An excellent bottled brown that tasted fresh as any bottled beer can hope. Toasty, biscuity aspect to the nose with caramel notes. Malt on palate, yet finishes fairly dry with some hop flavor playing a supporting role. Really decent bottled product. Would love to have it locally on tap!

April 20th, 2012 - Following fast on the heels of a sample of Moon Man is New Glarusí Fat Squirrel - a brown ale, and an excellent test of New Glarusí brewing style. If thereís a brew Iím more apathetic and saturnine about, itís brown ales. Anybody that cane make a brown ale something more than mundane is okay in my book, and I say New Glarus is counted in that group. The aroma is rich with peat, mimicking a scotch ale, but diverging from its kilted cousin with the nutty smell that is unique to pistachio, all complemented by a rich layer of roasted malts. The flavor is rich, and gleaming, with ribbons of caramel, more peat, and freshly kilned malt, served on a medium and quenching palate. Thereís no doubt - this is a notable brown ale, and another reason I should be living a little bit closer to New Glarus, Wisconsin.
