look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
Appearance: Poured into a pint glass, the beer is a light brown. Pour produces a nice fluffy white head at least 1 inch in height. Head fades to a full cover and leaves some lacing.
Smell: Light roasted malts. Not getting anything realy nutty; seems like a weak brown ale.
Taste: The roasted malts come through right away. No hops bitterness anywhere. I'm not really getting much of the "nut" in the nut brown ale either.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied (trying to push to medium bodied anyway). Well carbonated, keeps this light and lively.
Drinkability: A very drinkable, sessionable brown ale. However, I think the high drinkability is the beers downfall as it seems this beer is a bit "dumbed down" to keep it simple and drinkable. Nothing memorable or envelope pushing here.
Serving type: bottle
