Superior Brown Ale!!! Donít 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. Canít miss on New Glarus!!! hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - FEB 19, 2005
This was an wesome brown ale. lot of malt and of vcourse hazelnut in the arom and flavour. A bit of roast flavour with hints of chocolate in there as well. This was pretty damn good. Aureth (20) - Knoxville, Iowa, USA - FEB 18, 2005
Bottle NIce malty aroma, with some hint of hazelnut, as the bottle suggests. Dark copper, with a thin head that doesnít last long. Nice malty flavor, a bit roasty with some chocolate and nutty tones. A little thin on the palate, however. I enjoyed this. jollyraider (252) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 14, 2005
I donít really like brown ales. This one is pretty good though. Thin, yet a bit roasty for a brown. Silphium (3199) - 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. Iím 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 (2014) - 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. Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 27, 2004
Bottle: Kind of a roasty, citrus, and chocolate aroma. Pours a transparent reddish-brown with a small white head that lasts a minute or so. Flavor is roasted malt with some chocolate in there. A little nuttiness, but mostly malty. Light hops in finish balance well with the initial flavors. TheBeerGod (6209) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2004
Bottled. Acquired in a trade with joeybgood. Thanks Joe! Ruby tinged amber with splashes of brown throughout. Very "autumn" in color. Small whitish head. Nose is roasted malt, strong nuttiness, light cocoa and faint bittersweet chocolate. Taste is roasted malt and nuts. The chocolate comes through a bit more here. The nuttiness and roasty notes dominate, however. Mild hop character. Body is near full. Decent carbonation. Light bitterness. Finishes with more nuttiness and roasted notes. Good beer!
