hombrepalo (1972) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2010
12 oz bottle from a bootleg place in Chicago. Not the best of New Glarus but still an interesting take on a brown ale by N.G. This really could be a good session ale. Pours a clear brown (a bit too clear) color with light fading head, smells like nuts, coffee and roasted malts. Taste is light with malts, bread and floral hops. Finish is fresh, crisp. Not my fav of the browns but still a nice, unique and enjoyable treat. Thanks Randy.

beernbourbon (1601) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - NOV 15, 2010
Bottle. Pour is clear reddish copper with a small off-white head. Aroma is lightly nutty, light malt, lightly metallic, and faint squirrel. Flavor is nicely malty with notes of hazelnut and light yeast. Solid.

erickomosa (68) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Light brown with bubbly lasting head. Smells distinctly nutty, with hops. Tastes lightly roasted nuts, mild caramel malts, with hop crispness to finish. Body is highly carbonated, sparkling even. Finishes hoppy, clean, crisp.

Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2011
Reviewed from notes. On tap at the brewery.

Pours a moderate brown color with a light off white head. The nose brings some light caramel and toffee plus slight nutty characteristics. Taste is doughy brown that is slightly nutty and some light caramel sweetness. Medium feel with good carbonation. Nice and simple and drinks well.

Serving type: on-tap

dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Appearance is clear light brown with beige-ish head and decent retention. Aroma is nutty, toasty, mildly yeasty with a mild spicy hop backbone. Taste is nutty, earthy, and toasty. Body is medium, average carbonation, finishes smooth and satisfying. Overall, very tasty and drinkable but not particularly memorable.

flatmatt (1617) - Northville, Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours slightly on the light side of amber, clear, with an off-white head. Light caramel and mineral aromas. Flavors of toasty malts, hints at caramel and cocoa. Pretty simple and straightforward, but not bad, and a decent choice for this warm winter night (similar to the one described on the bottle).

Unusually huge head for the style. Hazelnut undertones...a nice change. Generally a pretty good brown...but that might be damning with faint praise!

A sampling from the choice of the three at a cost of $3.50. Again, wish it could have been more than a few ounces so one could discover the life of the beer instead of just the beginning.
