Bottle pours a nice copper orange with a thin tan head. Very clear looking for both a brown ale and an unfiltered beer. Aroma is nutty, woody, caramel malts and a hint of yeast also present. Caramel malt, hazelnut, and brown sugar flavors are present. Body is light to medium and lightly carbonated. Very easy drinking and pleasant but seems to lack a wow factor to it being anything truly special.

Poured mahogany from the bottle with a thin white head. Odor and flavor of chocolate.

A lighter version of a typical craft brown. Nice mild malts. Not too much mouthfeel. Toffee notes in aroma and flavor.

Floral aroma, mahogany color and light beige head with some lattice and good retention. Roasted nut , coffee, and caramel flavors, some butterscotch. Medium mouthfeel with some creaminess at the end. Variety of hops is evident as the flavors swirl and change throughout. Good brown ale, but Bells is a bit better.

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

Slight hoppy, musty aroma with a medium light tan head. Amber in color with real nice bubble production. Taste is nothing to special here, just an honest toasted malted flavor with no after taste. Head disappears quickly although carbonation still ongoing at mid-beer. Nice medium ale structure, not to light, not to heavy. Really, just right.

Distinctively nutty with strong notes of brown sugar and honey. Not much of a head to speak of, but still quite striking in its lighter than usual brown hue.
While perhaps a bit sweet for my tastes, this is a fantastically balanced ale that has a long, smooth finish.
Pair with a sharp cheddar and thinly sliced salami.

Pint at Anduzzi's sports club in green bay. Nice nut brown ale but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks Kraft! Dry roasted aroma. Flavor is subtle but very tasty. Light mouthfeel and very drinkable.

New Glarus uses twist offs? Pour is a clear orangey-brown with a nice off-white head. The aroma is mildly nutty and sweet with a bit of earthiness. This beer has a nice creamy body, great in a brown. The flavor is a nice combination of nutty (walnuts?) and toasty, with an incredible nutty finish. This is an easy drinking beer. Good stuff.
