Notes/Commercial Description:
Rugged Trail Nut Brown Ale is back on tap in our Tasting Room for a limited time. Originally released as “Nut Brown Ale,” Rugged Trail was eventually given a makeover and became one of our first year-round beers. Rugged Trail boasts a deep bronze hue, rocky head, and subtle hop aroma. Toasted Amber and Chocolate malts impart a rich nutty character and creamy texture, making Rugged Trail an obvious quaffing delight! 5.0% ABV and 33 IBU. 2014 Availability: draft and growler fills only.

Looks like a nut brown. Gorgeous khaki head with a creamy density. Deep red-brown body with some light allowance.

Sweet hazelnut malts with coffee notes, herbal hops, earthiness, toffee, and a hint of harvest fruit. Delicate, yet robust.

Kind of a thin flavor. It's not marred by any metallic notes or sweetness. Light and dry. Breakfast coffee, almond, toffee, scorched earth, tree bark, hints of alkaline (cocoa/hop bitterness), herbal flavors, hazelnut, and a kiss of red apple. Quite nice, sans the lack of intensity.

Drinks easily. Very soft-bodied. Round and rolling, in the mouth. Lightly carbonated for an enduring session drink.

Happy that Troegs brought this back so that I could finally review it. Cheers!
