3.33/5 rDev -2.1%
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a light brown color with a small cream colored head. The head fades quite fast to leave a persistent film on the top of the brew and very little lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a roasted malt and caramel smells. Mixed with these aromas are some nutty smells as well as a toffee aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready and roasted malt flavor with some caramel sweetness. . As the flavor advances some toffee and nut flavors then hit the tongue mixed with a light fruit taste of apple. In a not so smooth transition the sweeter flavors start to fade more toward the end as a light bitterness of a citrus and earthy nature come to the tongue. In the end a lightly bittered and semi-sweet roasted flavor are left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather average. A little more body and a little less carbonation would have likely suited the brew better, giving the roasted malt, caramel and nut flavor mix a more decant and suiting feel.
Overall – Well it’s not offensive and it is OK, but its lack of smooth transitions and its rather weak mouthfeel would likely prevent me from recommending this one to others. Just OK.

Food Pairing: Enjoyed this with some potatoes and pork loin, which had been brined with herbs and roasted with pumpkin sauce. Complimented the earthy flavors of the dish fairly well, but the Mudslinger was slightly too light to stand up to its counterparts richness.
A- Modest head which disappeared rather quickly. Very clear, appealing deep amber to orange/brown color.
S - chocolaty in a tootsie roll way, pear, sweet malts. Faint overall.
T - Mild nutty and malt background of diluted chocolate flavors lend a light sweetness which thankfully doesn't overstay its welcome, instead getting a bit better towards the end. Bitterness is in check as well.
M - Light and refreshing.
Overall - Not nearly as rich as its name may imply, and is in fact a highly accessible, drinkable beer which may be best enjoyed in warmer weather.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Reviewed live.
A- Two-finger very light brown head. Walnut color body with high clarity and decent carbonation. Several minute long retention with nice fluffy lacing.
S- Overcooked malts, chocolate and creamy notes. Poorly balanced.
T- Bitter, malts are not sweet. Earthy, English hops. Odd flavor, not what I was expecting.
M- Smooth and fizzy.
O- This one's kind of a stinker. Not tasty, not fitting the style. Just odd.

Mahogany almost reddish hue. Minimal head.
Malt. some roastiness, a little bit of grassy hops.
Predominantly malts. Some bittering towards the end. Toasted bread malts. Little bit of nuts.
Eh, decent brown, but not really anything overly exciting.

Nice sweet smell out of bottle.
Nice unfiltered reddish-brown color
Head is tan but not aggressive, but lacing hangs on the glass thoughout.
Smell out of glass brings more subtle malt notes.
First taste is malty but not overpowering. Nutty after.
No real bitterness. Any bite is typically at the tip of the tongue or roof of the mouth.
Feel is overall smooth.

Clear brown colored beer with a thin tan colored head, it actually doesn't look like much.
Smells malty with a mild molasses and wheat toast slightly burnt aroma. Scents of chocolate and coffee with a little caramel syrup. Smells better than it looks.
Starts out semi-dry with a mild roasted malt flavor. Toasted grains with some coffee, it is quite mild tasting.
Mouthfeel is OK.
Overall super easy to drink even if it is a little too lightly flavored for my taste. Still I would buy again sometime when I just want a mild brown ale at a good price.

Bomber into standard pint.
A: pours clear brown with copper highlights. A quarter inch of offwhite head that was pretty fluffy and fell to a thin but complete cap and is leaving some lacing on the sides.
S: beery. Sweet caramely notes. Otherwise not much there.
T: sweet but not cloying. Lots of caramel malt flavor followed by a bit of herbal hop that balances out the beer. quite drinkable.
M: light and smooth. Increases the drinkability. Could easily finish a couple of them.
O: not well aquainted with the nut brown ale style but if this is average to good then I like 'em.
