Samuel Adams Hazel Brown is a copper/brown colored beer with a roasted/toffee nose and a clear, well- filtered body. The nose on this beer is quite pronounced, and it certainly whets the appetite for the tasting experience ahead.

And the tasting experience is every bit as good as the nose leads you to believe. Flavors of caramel, a little bit of coffee, plenty of toffee, hazelnut, honey, and some pine- like and earthy hops keep your palate pleased with each passing sip. The body of the beer is medium and the flavor profile is well- balanced.

Hazel Brown is sold this year as part of the Harvest sampler pack. It is a good- tasting brown ale that will appeal most to those who like the taste of hazelnuts, but there is much about this beer to enjoy by everyone. The nutty flavor, pleasant finish, and good balance make it a good craft beer for most any occasion.

I'm not a big fan of hazelnut beers but this is pretty good, if not great and a bit simple.

Copper-brown, it has a medium pale tan head soon thinning to ring.

Aroma is strong toasty, slightly caramelised bread crust, barley with strong hazelnut, bit of wet bread & earth.

Taste is toasty caramelly-earhty up front with hazel soon joining. The hazelnut is firm but not overpowering, it's pretty balanced and his toasty-bitter-sweet finish and aftertaste.
