Pours brown of course. Aroma is nutty and malty. The flavor is where this brew loses marks. Its nice to look at but there is almost no taste at all. Very bland and weak. There is a little more flavor out of a tap than out of the clear glass bottles but not much to change a rating.

gsteph (323) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Pours mahogany with off white head. Some lacing. Nutty aroma with some hint of fruit. Very palatable but overall weak flavor. Nutty and fruity. Pasteurization probably does this one in. One would expect more for the money. Good session beer but not much else. Goes well with euro 2004.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2004
Bottle: Poured a deep brown with little head that had no length. Weak aroma of malt and dark fruits. Flavour was a weak nutty caramel with some bready fruit notes. Good refreshing palate. Nice beer, but lacking finesse.

Deep red-brown color, Moderate head. It has a nice hop flavor and has a pleasant aftertaste.

BigBilly (127) - London W3 6PF, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2004
500ml clear bottle. Poured a clear mahogany with white head and some lacing.No aroma.Roast nut flavour slightly sweet finish. Nothing like I remember it from my youth. Its OK I guess but I immediately want to drink something else now.

Veldy (65) - Coon Rapids, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2004
Oddly, for a brown ale, I love this beer. Caramel flavor and yet quite dry [for a brown]. I like a drier beer, but for a brown, it is a little out of style. I would rather change the style guidelines than change the beer.

When I was into Macros this was a favorite. Very poundable but ABV is too low nowadays.

shadey (2095) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 9, 2004
Nutty aroma and flavor. I would enjoy this alot more if it didnt effect my bum so much the next morning.

Goodfella (60) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 9, 2004
Not Bad! I liked the dark golden/brown color, and the aroma was strong and hoppy. It went down well while I watched a football game and kept its head long.

My wife finds this beer delicious. I think it is much better on tap, as all beers are. Good nut taste.
