A: Medium brown tint, but light enough to see through. Very little head, and what is there dissipates rather quickly.
S:Hint of Hazlenut, maybe almond? sort of malty as well.
T: Not as nutty as your usual nut brown, but with a hint of chocolate and a light body, this is a great springtime beer.
M: Light, a little watery, very little fizz.
Nut brown is one of my favorite beer styles, and i'm biased to like this one, as it's made here in Anchorage, and was the first of this style I ever tried. I've had many browns since, and though in comparison there are much better out there, this one is the one i compare the rest to.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, biscuit, caramel, and nut aromas. Taste is much the same with toasted nut flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice combination of toast and nut qualities.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a very dark mahogany brown with ruby highlights and a half finger light tan head that dissipates to a thin patchy film and ring around the glass, leaving light slippery lacing. Light aroma of bready and caramel malt, nuts and a hint of cocoa. Flavor of mildly toasted biscuit malt, nuts, hints of cocoa and grassy hops. Medium bodied. A mild, unassuming brown ale that hits all the right flavor notes, but is perhaps a bit low key in flavor. Finish is lighter than expected. Good and sessionable, but not too memorable.

In a pint glass, the beer was dark brown with some red highlights. There was a thick tan head that lasted forever, leaving a good deal of lace.
Mild caramel aroma. Some nuts.
Caramel taste. Hazelnuts. Rather muted.
A nice brown ale.
