Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAY 14, 2017
Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a ruddy burnt dark orange to amber color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that slid off pretty quick. Not much lace. The aroma had some sweet nuts, smooth caramel/toffee sweet malts, grassy hops and sweet bready/doughiness. The flavor leaned towards the smooth sweet breadiness. Some dark breadiness came in. Super smooth lingering malty aftertaste and finish. The palate was between light and medium bodied. Good sessionability. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine. Overall, good as a beer, somewhat lager-like, but didn’t bother me. I’d come back to this.

Pours brown to amber, aroma is more lager than ale. Very light palate tastes likes lager rather than an ale. Probably a great ale for people who prefer lager but not for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A medium brown body with a tan head. Most of which faded away. Mild roasted malts and a nutty presence in aroma. Flavor was similar with the exception of a mild sweetness. A nice slightly dry finish. Nice balance, but a so so beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Disappointed as I usually like nut brown ales. This one is lacking in flavor. There are better ones

Aroma is yeast, berries, toffee and mildly nutty malts. The flavor is fruit/berries, mildly nutty malts, toffee and a tart finish.

From tasting at the Brewery in Westminster. Yeasty brown malt, some scotch ale bite. Sweet nuttiness. OK.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is brown with a moderate off-white head and good clarity. The aroma is sweet, malty, and nutty and quite appealing. The body is medium and a little acidic. The taste also has a upfront sweet and nutty flavor with low, lingering bitterness. Very pleasant overall.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from the Jacksons. Thanks E.J. and Katey! It pours a light brown with lots of amber highlights and a small, off white head. The nose is slightly fruity with some unusual nuttiness and a touch of earthiness. The flavor has that weird nuttiness followed by a dry, almost astringent finish. Perhaps some walnut mixed with macadamia? I’m having a hard time trying to figure this one out. Not really much in the way of bitterness, just that astringent finish. Certainly unusual.

This beer is smooth, plain and light. Nothing more, nothing less. Belgian style yeast signature is apparent, but doesn't do much for the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Bottle best by 05/12. Pours clear dark red and brown with a 2-finger fluffy beige head. Aromas of sweet malt, toasted almonds, and brown sugar. The flavor is sweet, with mildly nutty (hazelnut, almond) notes. Not bad. [938]
