The Nut Brown pours as a richly brown coloured brew. I taste a decently complex brown ale here, some present but not overbearing roasted notes, mixed with some floral notes. The beer tastes brighter than it looks, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Overall, the carbonation reduces my enjoyment of an otherwise palatable beer. It has a touch of sourness to it, with a smooth finish that lightly coats the mouth.

I'd recommend this beer as something to at least experience but not when better options like New Holland Brewing or Samuel Smith are available.

Poured into a Kansas City Royals pint glass, but do not worry, the mediocrity of the team does not affect the beer. In this case, the beer was just mediocre. Thin, thin, thin and only slightly flavorful. Light brown in appearance (is this darker on tap?), and no head to speak of. Luckily, I only had one bottle of this in a mix-and-match 6'er. Won't try again from the bottle.

2.74/5  rDev -20.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Fair head for a brown with some lingering lacing on the glass. Color is very clear for a brown. A very mild nutty aroma. Not impressive. Taste and mouth feel are extremely thin. There's really not much here to satisfy. Given Arcadia's strong distribution in Michigan, I expected a lot more from them. This is way too bland. Pass it up.
