Bottle to glass. A dark golden brown. Smell is a little metallic? Light to medium carbonation. A sweet nutty flavor, but it is balanced. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pours caramel color with faintly yellow head. Malty aroma. taste caramel malt and nuts, bread. Clean slightly dull mild hop finish, none of the unpleasant finish you find in some nut brown ales. Full palate. Very drinkable.

Caramel color with a malty aroma. Great malty flavor, almost creamy feeling with a nutty finish on the back of your tongue. Great gateway beer into the nuttier sort.

Sweet malty caramel smell. Light brown in color with a white head. Lots of malt flavor. I like nuttyness too. Similar to Fat Tire, but much better. At $7 a six pack, this is great!

Hazy Brown with a touch of crimson, filmy head, mild carbonation and good lacing. Very roasty nose with chocolate, hazelnets, roasted barley and some mild hoppiness. Flavor is fairly roasty and chocolate forward with some nutty notes, roasted barley & malts and some mild floral hoppiness. Body is fairly light with some pretty strong carbonation. Very tasty brown ale!

Poured into a snifter tasting glass from a bottle. The beer has a amber color. There was a good mix of aromas: nut, caramel, vanilla, and fruit (peach). The beer had a clean, smooth, crisp sweet finish.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2016 Nice brown ale. Pleasant nutty and toasted aroma. Lightly sweet, with a nutty flavor. Toasted malt dominates. Medium body very drinkable. Updating in 2016. Grown to really enjoy this or this years batch is extra good. Solid slightly roasted malt, nutty, slight chocolate malt, leafy, herbal hops. Just gteat autumn beer

Aroma of slight toasted hazelnut and dark bread. Dark brown color with light minimal head. Flavor is light and toasted. A weak body and light carbonation. Not as much flavor as I was hoping but a decent nut brown
