the beer was slightly hazy, probably from being over chilled, but it was still a nice brown color. I liked it, litle hops but the malt flavor wasnt overpowering

This is one of the better nut brown ales I have had.Not as much nut flavor as some,but great malt profile,and enough hops to balance it out.

This beer had a very strong taste and was not good to me at all. Most people had disagreed with me. Little amount of hops was used.

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - AUG 31, 2004
This is a beer I keep coming back to. It is well balanced and is consistently very drinkable. It has a great texture that gets creamier as it warms, yet remains quite lively. In fact, it seems to change character dramatically with the temperature (more of a bite when it was cold than when it warmed). The color is a reddish brown. The head was a little disappointing and petered out about midway.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Dark brown color, with light getting through around the edges of the clear bottle, and a thick, sizzling tan head. Aroma is nutty, herbal, with a notes of caramel, butterscotch, and almonds, and the lush feel of the deep woods. On the palate: sweet and buttery, with a mellow and medium body. Small hop presence here, more a malt emphasis, and a great balance between. Sweet enough to please the folks, but with a solid enough body not to disappoint the serious ale lover. Quite unlike the ever-present, flimsy and bland Newcastle. Very pleasing, and rewarding.

Deep red with a moderate lasing tan head. Has a sweet, fruit/nit taste. Felt smooth during drinking.

thegreenrooster (4191) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 20, 2004
Pours a nice deep,dark red. Aroma is a little skunky in mine, im sure it would be different on tap instead of the clear bottle. Flavor is malty and spicey. Lots of smoky bitterness in the end. This brew is ok but all Sam Smiths brews are decent to excellent.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2004
Chestnut brown. Nice light brown head. Off-white ring disappoints a bit. SMoky caramel nose, very light, but extremely balanced. Nut flavors are obvious, very nicely blended malt. Tasty yet subtle, tobacco finish, yeasty. Fine texture, smooth, gentle medium carbonation. The brown ale against which to compare every other.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 17, 2004
Deep ruby-to-brown colour, pretty looking pinkish head. Full sweet caramelly aroma, big malty and nutty flavour. A BMW among brews.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 From the bottle at Yeomans Road Pub in Tampa. Smells almost grape like, sweet, but not cloying. Pours very nice with a thin head. Tastes both nutty (roasty) and mildly sweet. Decent mouthfeel, but a tiny bit thin. Overall a very solid beer.
