Bottle. pours a clear brown with a nicelight tan head. aroma of chocolate cashews, or something similar. roasted malt flavor than finishes just like it starts. there is some spicyness to this, peppery and a touch of vanilla. not bad. a good example of the style.

Might want to re-rate this, but I am not very impresssed. Nice color, nice aromas of nuts and chocolate, but the palate seems a little flat and I’m not getting a lot of secondary flavors. Nice enough session beer and much nice than a New Castle.

Coppery brown. Fruity sweet malt aroma. Sweet nutty malt flavor. Finish is long and nice. Very well-balanced and quite drinkable. Merest hint of chocolate in the finish.

Bottle pours dark amber (kinda light for a Brown Ale), small off-white fizzly head, with plenty of carbonation but with below average lacing.   Malty and slightly nutty on the nose.   WOW, flavor is rather nice on this one.   Slightly sweet, nutty, malty and easy to drink.   Finishes clean and crisp.   Good mouthfeel too!   Probably one of the better Brown Ales that I have had.   Thanks goes out to batkins for the trade!

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2005 (Re-Rate) IT WAS A FLUKE! I had this on tap last night and it was delicious, nothing like the previous 2.5 I gave it. Pours darker amber color. Flavor is lots of caramel and tofee. Sweet roasted malty body to it. Very nice!

Has lots of carbonation and is a clear red and brown color. There is a small white head. The aroma is green beans and caramel. The taste is typical for the style. Has malt, caramel and a sour lemon finish. Good for the style.

My first New Glarus....and it makes me want to see what else this brewery has to offer. Light Brown Coloring. Nutty...caramel. Roasted? Very smooth and balanced.

Brite brown color. Little to no head, dissapated quickly. Rich caramel and roasted malts, somewhat nutty in flavor. Slightly sweet and well balanced.

Good malty, somewhat sweet aroma. Good balance of malty sweetness and bitterness throughout. One of the more enjoyable brown ales I have had.
