Pours medium brown with a wispy tan head. Some lacing sticks.
.
The smell is of caramel, brown sugar, roasted nuts and a hint of cocoa.

The taste is of caramel, nuts, and a touch of chocolate. The malty sweetness in balanced by mild roast and subtle earthy tones in the finish.

It is malty smooth and creamy. Very pleasant smoothness and aftertaste.

It hits the style on the head. A rich malty smooth that is sweet, but balanced. Caramel-ish, nutty, slightly chocolaty with a smooth texture. I had a second bottle with leftovers from Thanksgiving, and it went well with the free-range turkey and the gravy!

12 oz. bottle poured into a tumbler.

A- Very turbid brown body is poured. Light brown, creamy head.

S- Caramel mixed with a little booze and a little nut.

T- Sweet caramel, with a bit of a nuttiness to the flavor as well.

M- Slight creaminess. Carbonation isn't very noticeable. Finish is smooth and sweet.

O- I'd like more from the body of this beer, for some reason, and I think the taste could be a little bolder.

I was not "mad" about the Madtown Nutbrown. Definitely di not rank in my top ten for brown ales. The beer pour a nice brownish amber with ok head that did not lace. The scent carried earthy and malt aromas but nothing out of control. The taste was more like a watered caramel coffee. The mouthfeel was light in body with decent carbonation. Overall it was just ok....definitely worth a try.
