UPDATED: MAY 1, 2005 About as good as a brown ale can get. Unspectacular malt aroma. Brown with sediment. Flavor is surprisingly complex for the style. Dark roasted malt, similar to an oatmeal stout. Sweet and nutty.

Superior Brown Ale!!! Don’t exactly have the largest sampling record on this category but this could possibly be my favorite. Nice nutty flavor, little bitter, smooth and very drinkable. Another great Wisconsin beer courtesy of JPDIPSO. Can’t miss on New Glarus!!!

Bottle NIce malty aroma, with some hint of hazelnut, as the bottle suggests. Dark copper, with a thin head that doesn’t last long. Nice malty flavor, a bit roasty with some chocolate and nutty tones. A little thin on the palate, however. I enjoyed this.

I don’t really like brown ales. This one is pretty good though. Thin, yet a bit roasty for a brown.

Silphium (3198) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - JAN 9, 2005
Deep red coppery body, thin/medium light cream head. Toasty, nutty aroma with a touch of chocolate and earthy hops. Pretty thin-bodied but with a nice flavor profile, quite toasty and earthy with brown sugar and a slight nuttiness. Perfect for session drinking; this does everything right despite being light in body. I’m finding that New Glarus excels in subtlety.

Bottle from Styles. Pours a very clear chestnut color. A slight, beige head forms slowly and fades quickly. Nice nutty sweet aroma with a little touch of coffee. Mouthfeel is smooth. Nutty and caramel flavors. Nice hop finish. Nicely done brown ale.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Copper with a beige head. Pleasant aroma of malt, nuts, hops. Nicely carbonated and smooth in the mouth. Crisp, fresh nutty taste with hops and malt and caramel. Very good stuff.

Styles (2016) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2010 Pours brown/mahogany with decent head, spotty lacing. Nutty up front, hazelnut, faint almond, bready/toasty, faint caramel. Flavor well balanced combo of nuts and caramel/toffee, finishes with some hop bitterness. Creamy smooth mouthfeel. Great session.
