Poured this into my...uh oh...Budweiser pint glass. I'm sorry. Anyway, it poured to a kind of dark-red-brown color. The head was tall, sticky, and tannish in color. Good lacing throughout the brew. Hops hit me first on the nose. Rolled into some citrus notes and then some roastiness. Definitely roasty flavor. Nutty obviously with a nice, light hop taste. A light, crisp mouthfeel. Medium-bodied. I like this nut brown. Very drinkable, I just wish this wasn't my last one.

I have to admit, I didn't really go into this one expecting much but a run of the mill brown, and I was pleasantly surprised. Poured an nice dark brown with very little head, but left a fair amount of lacing on the glass. Very nutty smell, with some caramel and malt, and an odor of alcohol that was much less present on the mouth than in the nose. Nutty, not very malty or sweet, a very drinkable beer. Not as heavy or sweet as I expected it would be, but not weak by any means. Not the best brown ale I've ever had, but definitely above average. I'll absolutely be making this one of my regulars.

Only my second offering from this brewery but again I liked it.

A - Decent pour for a brown ale. It's brown and has a nice tan colored head with some slightly sticky lacing.

S - Wow that is pretty good. Brown malts, cashews and pecans covered in caramel.

T - I really like how they didn't load this beer with brown malt. This resulted in a very drinkable beer with slight cashews and walnuts and a smooth creamy sweet caramel finish.

M - Light to medium pretty on par with the style.

Overall if found again I would get it again. It's right up next to Samuel Smith's version and I liked the sweetness. Good beer.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a deep, copper-amber with 1/2" of thick, dense, foamy head that has good retention. The nose is faint caramel, nutty malt. The taste is light caramel malt but little else. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, smooth, and well carbonated.

In my opinion a fuller body and a heavier malt content would have gone a long way to improve this one. It was OK.
