Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a "pint" glass. Pours brown with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of caramel, nice fruitiness, and a hint of nuttiness. Tastes of fruit with a tad of nuts. Beer is light bodied and nicely carbonated. Overall, a very good beer.

This is a quality nut brown ale. Great toasty flavors and a rich, warm flavor make this one seasonal I constantly crave year round.

Sweet malty caramel smell. Light brown in color with a white head. Lots of malt flavor. I like the nuttyness too. Similar to Fat Tire, but much better. At $7 a six pack, this is great!
