3.9/5 rDev +0.5%
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Translucent brown with a nice two-finger tan head that slowly settles
S: Roasted malt and fairly nutty
T: Roasted malt initially, a pleasant toasted nuttiness throughout (almond/walnut); a bit of bitterness on the midpalate and a nutty finish
M: Medium-bodied, easy to drink
O: I didn't pick up any maple syrup which the label specifically mentions. That being said, if you like toasted nuts overall this is almost like drinking a bag of mixed nuts which I personally very much enjoy. Worth seeking out.

Enjoyed on tap at an ocharleys in Florence ky. Poured into a pint glass.
A - brought to me with no head but left nice lacing. Dark amber in color.
S - very neutral.. light dark grain smell. Not much on hops.
T - the nuttiness comes through pretty good. Light hop bitterness on the finish.
M - A little overcarbonated.
O a good local brew that is definitely a good example of the style

4.35/5 rDev +12.1%
Appearance - Pours a nice brown color with a slight amber hue. Has a centimeter thick, creamy tan head that dissipates quickly. Also has a nice, creamy lacing.
Smell - Strong malts and caramel, maple, and grains.
Taste - Very sweet, mostly from the maple I believe.. Toasted malts, caramel, a feint hint of coffee and chocolate, with a nutty character that dominates the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
Overall - It's a little too much on the sweet side for me but this is one of the best brown ales I've tried.

3.98/5 rDev +2.6%
A: The beer is clear but dark reddish brown in color. It poured with a quarter finger high light beige head that has very good retention properties and hardly died down.
S: There are light aromas of nutty malts in the nose along with some notes of maple syrup.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the flavors of maple syrup are a bit stronger and there is a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really enjoyed this nut brown ale because there's just enough maple syrup in this beer to make the smell and taste interesting without having any sweetness.

4.1/5 rDev +5.7%
A: A nice crisp mahogany with thin off white head.
S: Rich. Maple jumps right up. Roasted nuts. Pleasant and different.
T: Can taste the maple and nuttiness. Roasty bitterness lingers and finishes kind of dry. Nice balance with the sweetness at the beginning.
M:Clean and not too full. Nice brightness from the tap.
O: Enjoyable. A bit different than I'm used to. Probably won't be a go to, but I'm glad I tried it.

A- Full inch-tall, off- white head on a reddish-brown colored body. Good head retention and lacing splatter all over the sides of my glass.
S- Whiffs of brown roasty toasty malts, copper pennies.
T- Sweet and rich maltiness with just a touch of coffee/hazelnut character on the back-end. I have to say, this has so much flavor that I almost question the stated 6%abv...would guess higher!
M- Full bodied mouthfeel with low and soft carbonation.
D/O- I really like this brown ale, the finish to each sip (soft hazelnut to me) really set it apart from other browns I've had in the past. Recommended. Thanks for the Ohio "Top 50" brew, MaxSpang!

Been quite some time since I've sat down with a nut brown ale.
This one looks real nice on the pour. The nut tones seem to be very appropriately placed accents. This beer has excellent balance. I think that's what I would say if I had to use just one word: balance. Extremely easy drinking and well worth the ride. Suggested.
