This Brown Ale has a touch of nuttiness provided by our good friends Mr. and Mrs. Victory and Munich Malt. The addition of Northern Brewer, Cascade, and Willamette hops smooth this beer out to create an incredibly drinkable Brown Ale.

Pours a dark brown color with small white head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Flavor is a bit nutty and somewhat sweet. Medium bodied with smooth finish. Not bad.

Meh. Not bad, but certainly not a beer I would run to buy again. Tried this at the Pizza Outback in Taos, NM and it was one of the first SKA beers Id ever had. Nutty, of course, but in a pleasant manner. Slightly sticky mouthfeel, some caramel and dark fruit flavors, but the aroma is bland and the beer lacks something that will set it apart. Sessionable.

Bottle from GBBF 2012, drunk at home. Clear deep brown/red colour. Thin beige head. Its a brown ale. Some brown malts. Not much hop. Not very interesting, but no bad flavours. Fine, if a little uninspiring. It went down pretty fast though. Not surprising as it was the first beer of the evening.

Buster Nut Brown has a fairly translucent, amber-brown color with a very light brown head... not all that great looking in the glass, but I wont hold that against it. Its nutty in the nose with a definite yeast character that adds a certain waft to the nose. Im not at all sold on this, but still... Ill give it a chance. In the mouth, its better than the appearance and aroma let on. Thin, yes, but fortunately the nuttiness isnt overpowering and all flavors are in check with the beers slim weight. Otherwise, theres only a faint whisper of roasted malt. Overall, its pretty flat on the palate. Much lighter than most nut brown ales. Although not offensive, its actually kinda disappointing.

Bottle from BR R - taking that for Beer Revolution. Probably in the frig for 6 months. Pours clear but dark ruddy brown with a slight beige head. Aroma of brown ale type malt. A little hop spice too - maybe even a hint of cinnamon. Med minus body. Its a bit sweet - not very hoppy. Theres some lightly greasy nuttiness. And its finishing very lightly astringent and dry. Something changed there. Fairly tasty.

This was on draft last winter. A decent brown ale with a nut roast and sweetness from malts. Brown pour and off white head overall. It is ok.

Pours an amber brown with an off-white head. The taste is malts and some nuttiness but it's all up front. The finish is carbonation. A drinkable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
