It has a good honey nut ale taste that really catches my attention.

No hop profile at all. Apparently I don't enjoy spiced Brown ales

I really enjoyed this beer. It is a good seasonal beer. It has a nice amber/caramel hue to it with a light amount of carbonation. While the nose on it was kind of weak I picked up some delicate spice aromas. The taste was not a mess of overly spiced beer but it was very lightly spiced solid ale with a great malt taste. While there is nothing that stands out about this beer I think it is a very solid beer that would be a staple in my fridge during the holidays if I did not have to buy a 12 pack of Sam Adams junk to get just TWO bottles. I think that it ridiculous to put the solid beers in a case and only include two. Unfortunately because of this I have had the only one I will have this year (My GF stole the other)
