Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Very slight aroma of malt and toffee. Flavor hampered by thin watery palate, but some nice brown ale flavors of brown sugar and malts. Mr_TBone (168) - Hollywood, California, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Grassy smell up front, hidden nuttiness and caramel beneath the grassy hops(which seemed odd to be in the forefront of a nut brown, very invasive). Tast is nutty, dry subtle baking chocolate, ok carbonation and mouthfeel a little assertive feeling, almost biting. Then the swallow and finish it is so metallic that it ruins the entire experience. troopie (2350) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAR 13, 2012
A wonderful looking beer. Faint malty aroma. Thin body with a little hop. Some medicininess in the finish. Unremarkable and something of a disappointment yespr (45864) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2012
From tap at Taphouse Grill. Pours clear and golden deep amber with a small white head. Aroma is mild malty and toasted. Toasted malty, caramelish and mild sweet flavoured. Bitter, toasted and light caramelish into the finish. Dry and lasting malty impression. Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Very good. Light bodied combined wit a mild taste - but not a Fireside Nut Brown.

Pours a clear red, nice white head with some lacing. Aroma is mild but sweet and malty. Flavor much the same. Meh. ttoadee (1509) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Pours a clear soft brown. The slightly off cream head does not last long. The carbonation stays soft through out. Caramel in the nose with a hint of cocco. Medium sweetness coats the tongue with a slightly sticky sensation. This reminds me of Pete’s Wicked Ale back in the late 80’s-early 90’s; a balanced American Brown Ale. switchflip (6) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 5, 2012 does not count
I am sitting here wondering how out of all the redhook beers that are widely distributed, how this one got one of the highest scores. In all honesty, it tastes like if you took a dirty dishrag, dunked it in dirt water, and then squeeze that out into a glass and poured a cheap half shot of well voldka in it. YUCK. for $15.00 I should have known better. BelgianBeerGal (4085) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Bottle at Dayton Ale feast. I thought this was a nice brown ale that separated itself from the pack of lesser browns. A little tastier roasted malts and hop balance compared to others. nice. JoeTheYounger (1183) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Clear copper pour at redhook brewery. Aroma is very faint grains and wet bread. Toasted nuts. Nice medium body.
