Malty aroma. Mid brown coloured fruity and a little hoppy with a slightly rich dry and nutty malt finish. mikalooch (224) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 23, 2010
Bottle. Pours a deep reddish brown with almost no head, just a slight tan rim around the sides. Nutty caramel aroma. Taste is sweet, almost cloying, with a hazelnut essence over a malty base with very mild hops flavor. Very light and watery, easy to put down fast. Not bad. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 13, 2010

Aroma - basic malt, nutty, faint sweetness;

Taste - slightly sweet malt front, back is nutty, hint of chocolate, dry finish;
Palate - somewhat crisp, good body;
Overall - solid brew, nothing over the top yet still well built. Plamadude30k (122) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 30, 2009
A relatively standard brown ale; a little nutty, a bit of chocolate, some earthiness. It’s a lot lighter than I like in a brown ale, though I guess that’s a matter of personal preference.
ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, brown body with a small, bubbly, white head.
Smell: Lightly malty, nutty aroma with a hint of chocolate and some floral hoppiness.
Taste: Sweetish, nutty maltiness. Again, a hint of chocolate. Some wateriness thins out the already thin flavors. Light floral hops, though not much bitterness to offer. Drying, nutty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-low carbonation.
Drinkability: So-so for a fairly light brown ale. ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2008 Pours dark red brown with not much carbonation. Very clear. No head. Smells of floral hops. First taste is bland then floral sweet, then bitter. Light body. drjay44 (3679) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2009 The type of beer for a very hot day. Body was very light, not medium. As it warmed the "nut" flavor came in, but remained very subtle. Too subtle. Re-rating.... nose light nut, with a bit of coffee and caramel.....taste early is light caramel malt, finishes with light bitterness.....mouth feel is light, carbonation makes it seem fizzy. ziabeerman (3) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAY 12, 2008 does not count
A well brewed Brown with a very pleasing nut flavor. Lighter bodied which allows for a high drinkablility. Very enjoyable. blazingspiral (170) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 9, 2008
12 oz bottles from whole foods in Abq. a more affordable 6 pack than the out-of-state micros, which is nice. pour is very dark brown, but not quite as dark as a porter. red and amber hues can be seen in the light. aroma is weak, with almost a macro-brew thing going on... not very promising. thankfully, the taste delivers a rich array of flavors (without being overly strong or assertive). the nuttiness is there, along with some good fresh-baked bread flavors, a bit of chocolate, and old world hops in the background. there is little bitterness, but just enough for the style. full-bodied and readily sessionable.
