Draft, at Olde Main. Well, light foam lacing for the last of my sampler (8 5 oz pils glasses for $6). Color is a light brown, just a little cloudy. Again, the taste is spoiled by some sourness that’s either line problems or too warm a ferment. I’m vacillating between generosity and disappointment here, but I hope this is because it’s a new place with room for improvement. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 2, 2005
On tap at the brewpub. The brewer called this a "Nut Brown Ale" when I visited. Brown in color with a white head. Has a fruity, malty aroma. Conspicuous absence of a toasted aroma or flavor. Fruity, malty and sweet. The Pale ale, nut brown and hefe all must use the same yeast which is imparting a clearly banana fruity sweetness to the beers.

Red with an evident, caramel malt aroma. Very smooth with a mellow bitterness and light hazelnutty finish.
