look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, served at room temp.

dark amber beer with minimal bubble showing supports a Pecan Sandy colored head. Good lacing.

aroma: faint caramel with equally faint hoppiness. Alcohol esters present. the aroma is good but not very strong.

mouthfeel: is good, fully and chewy.

taste: malt bomb like eating whole wheat bread, a touch of sweetness with just the right amount of hops to cut through the malty sweetness.

notes: surprisingly good, easily the best Dundee beer I've had. will buy again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Clear chestnut brown with a solid finger-plus of off white head. Decent retention.

A bit of esters, some floral hopping, and a healthy dose of toasted malt. Hazelnut aroma is like watered down frangelico.

Sweet toasted malts upfront, then some fairly clean bitterness, followed by caramel and hazelnut. A bit sweet for me. Surprisingly elegant and drinkable.

Medium bodied with lowish carbonation.

A surprisingly well done take on an northern english brown. A bit too sweet for the style, but the hazelnut flavoring is well integrated. An easy drinker for sure, but well made.

3.98/5  rDev +22.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours out a clear, dark garnet-hued body with a sensibly sized, ivory-hued head.

Smell: Sweetish, malty notes of semi-sweet chocolate, pale malts, toasted caramel, and the addition of hazelnut over a thin dried herb backdrop.

Taste: Pale malts, chocolaty malts, and caramel-tasting malts melding together, along with the dash of hazelnut flavoring, to give an overall nutty taste, as one might expect and rightfully demand given a cheeky squirrel on the front label. Lightly spicy, faintly floral hops with a low bitterness. Sweetish, still reasonably nutty on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Fairly smooth mouthfeel.

Overall: A pleasing nut brown ale; simple, but solidly structured. While it's not quite a Rogue Hazelnut Nectar, the entire Dundee 12-pack mixer cost me only a few quarters more than a six-pack of Rogue's.

My local trader, Tone77, brought over a whole buncha beers for me the other day and I am anxious to try all of them. I am not striving for fancy or chasing after the latest hot commodity, but instead sampling as widely and variously as possible.

From the bottle: "Originally brewed using the Yorkshire square system of fermentation, the nut brown ale calls the North of England home. A hint of hazelnut, a dash of rich caramel and a sprinkle of chocolate malt all intertwine with the flowery bouquet of Willamette hops to produce a round-bodied ale worthy of its homeland. Take a leaf out of our buddy, Cyril the red squirrel's book, and enjoy a Dundee Nut Brown Ale in your own drey. (Drey is a squirrel's nest. See, you learned something too.)"

Ha! I like learning while I drink. Cyril, by the way, is featured on the front label, in his smoking jacket with a lit pipe, an open nut brown ale and an acorn cap. I will be forced to make do with just a beer.

My aggro pour created a two-plus finger cap of fizzy light-tan head with moderate retention. I could really smell the hazelnut on the nose. Color was a deep-brown with NE-quality clarity. As the head subsided, I leaned in for a better whiff and the hazelnut was still very evident, but now with a chocolaty quality. Mouthfeel was medium-to-full, approaching, but not quite achieving creaminess. It was a sweet beer, to be sure, with the chocolate and hazelnut interacting nicely on the tongue to give it sort of a candy bar quality. It was on the finish that I caught the floweriness of the hops, and by flowers, they mean lilac, violet, or something equally perfume-like in its scent. Overall, not a bad beer, but just a bit too sweet for a self-avowed hophead.

3.7/5  rDev +13.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. No date.

Appearance - Medium dark brown body. Offwhite frothy head with good stick and decent retention. Swirling instantly creates more frothy head.

Smell - Sweet nutty malt. Slight banana.

Taste - Slight coffee bitterness followed by a thin underripe banana maltiness. No complexity. A little light on the body, but still enjoyable.

Mouthfeel - Light and frothy due to what seems like an unlimited amount of body carbonation that easily converts to head when agitated in the glass or mouth. Mild astringency, which actually helps this beer out a bit.

Overall Drinkability - A bit plain, but has no off characters. Would make a decent session.
