Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium to dark mahogany brown with a half finger, light brown head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of dark, sweet malt, hazelnuts and light brown sugar. Flavor follows, sweet dark malt, nuts with some light brown sugar and chocolate, slight tea like notes. Light bodied with good carbonation. All the classic nut brown ale flavors are here, but a bit subdued. Nicely balanced and nutty, it left me wishing for a more robust version. For a light session nut brown, good flavor and balance.

@ North Campground, Bryce Canyon Utah.

Sweet 70’s The Price is Right set piece looking can. Tall boy! Chestnut brown beer with a frothy head. Tea bag nutty brown malt and earthy chocolate aroma - this will be an English nut brown. Or is an English nut brown I guess. Taste is nutty with a little chocolate, a little English tea-ness and all ok. 4% and tastes like it but better body than Newcastle.

Pours a handsome chestnut brown with a tall head in the big wine glass. A hint of roasted grain in the nose. Soda water mouthfeel with a lot of sparkle.

The dark malt provides a modest undertone for this brew. It's not very sweet at all and has a little more scratch to it than many Brown Ales. There is a touch of pinon nuts in the back of the mouth. Hops are subdued, but this has some slight bitterness.

Given the delicate nature of this supermarket brew, it's quite gulpable. A maltier bit of flavor would help this a lot, but it's really just a thirst quencher. From the 16 oz can purchased at Emigration Market in Salt Lake City.

Served on tap into a shaker glass.

A- Poured a dark brown with mocha colored frothy head that left glass coating and dense lace.

S- Lighter aroma of nutty and brown sugar notes.

T- Tons of nutty and brown sugar, and chocolate notes. Pretty big roasted malt, caramel, and bready notes.

M- Medium to lighter bodied, prickly carbonation, and very refreshing.

O- Remarkably flavorful for 4% ABV. Tons of rich malt character and one of the best brown ales I have ever had.

Heady beer with a deep brown color and ruby garnets. Smells nutty with the tiniest hints of red fruits and a lightly sweet milk chocolate aroma. Tastes like Irish Brown Bread with flavors of molasses throughout and a gentle nut character. Finishes oddly dry and sweet at the same time, my only complaint is I wish this beer had a touch less carbonation. At 4% ABV this is a damn near impossibly flavorful beer.

You really should fix a squeaky bike. Same for this brew. It has potential, but it is missing the American in American Brown Ale.

It pours a nice brown and it has some head. There is an aroma - nutty and just a hint of roasty. The taste is thin and light - it reminds me of Mexican beer - disappointing and not very flavorful. It says malt forward on the can, but that would be because there just isn't much going on at all. The aftertaste is quickly forgotten.

I suppose you could drink a bunch of these and maybe they would start to grow on you. It certainly is light enough to do so, but I intend to avoid this
