Nice amber /brown color,small head that faded fast leaving little behind.The aroma was Malty and caramel with a mild fruit presence the flavor was malty and semi sweet caramel with a mild fruit and mild hops coming through,as it warmed the flavor became a little more evident with a nice semi sweetness coming through in the finish.Fairly decent AD that i'm glad to say i have more to enjoy for later.More then makes up for the trip to GF to get this brew,and the many others.

Decent head but does not last too long. Excellent lacing. Aroma of roasted nuts, malt and a touch of spice. Color is a dark orange/brown. Flavor is crisp with a good helping of hops and malt. Finish is dry and slightly bitter with a slight hops presence. A decent beer but nothing special. dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Mahogany in color with a large white ehad.Malty and clean.Toasted malt and spciy hop character.Pleasant dry finish. Duke (117) - New York, USA - FEB 3, 2004
Really liked this beer. Smells sweet and nutty. Nice hop balance. Think I'll have another. dprior (118) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 27, 2004
A really great looking, auburn appearance. Decent sized head. It wasn't anything special once it hit my mouth but it was satisfying. All around a pretty solid beer.

Some light caramel and faint nut in the aroma. Medium copper-brown color, with a lasting, creamy head and pretty good lacing. Light on flavor, again nutty with suggestions of caramel sweetness, perhaps some extremely vague herbal hop flavors towards the finish. Smooth, creamy palate and light-medium body. A little dull considering its unusual style. wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Off white head--small. Slightly nutty and malty aroma. Moderate body, slight malt flavor. A little syrup-like, but fairly good. guzzler67 (1696) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 9, 2004
Clear bronze appearance with a nice head. Aroma was non-descript. Well hopped flavor with an earthy, medium-bodied mouthfeel. Clean, dry finish. garrison (812) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2004
Fine for what it is... a mediocre brown ale, without the complexities of true winter brews. urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JAN 2, 2004
Mine was subtitled "Nut Brown Lager". Certainly hits that mark, to the extent there is such a mark. Nice fruity light caramel malt flavor. Good head retention and clarity. Well made, though perhaps nothing stunning. Easily the best from this decidedly MOR brewery.
