tasted like band aids at first, but after settling in to it i can taste a little more of it.
never really been a fan of anchor steam but trying the nut brown ales today and gave it a shot. the others i had today were superior to this one, but it doesnt taste too bad.

A brown ale made with Citra hops? Why yes please, what a joyous experiment. Pours dark brown with ample mocha foam, much like a porter. Aroma is a juxtaposition of strong citrus/tropical fruit and dark malts. Amazing complexity in the form of citrus (orange, blood orange, lime), mango, passion fruit, papaya, peach, and brown bread, almond nougat, chocolate, coffee, and brown sugar from the malts. Some body and residual sweetness coupled with a dry bitter finish from the hops. Really quite an aggressive brown ale that captures the malt aspects of the style but obviously experimental in the hopping. I like it but maybe not every day.
