Im starting off the year of BMC reviews with Leinie's Fireside Nut Brown.

The bottle produces a brown liquid. Decent carbonation, but nothing really special.

Smell is very BMC-like, plus load of dry nuts. Very nutty to the point of being off-putting.

The taste is awful. Very dry and nutty, like dried cashews and peanuts. The malt feels dry and kind of like dirt. Well mud to be exact. Ends slick and sweet.

Fireside Nut Brown
Appearance-Pours deep Maple Color, foamy yet thin head

Smell- Very Earthy smell, no real discernible smell to point out, other than slight coffee/ nuttiness

Taste –Very Toasty nutty taste. Almost peanut like. Very thin bitter aftertaste. Kind of a simple beer, just nuttiness, no other complex flavors.

Mouth –Feels a lot thinner than it looks, almost watery

Overall – Not a bad beer, but almost to overpowering with the nutt flavor and not enough else going on.

Served on draft.

A: dark brown, auburn highlights. Thin whIte head at first, disappears quickly. Nice clarity.

S: roasted malts Are balanced by a bit of maple on the nose, faint hints of chocolate as well as bubblegum

T: the flavor starts out pretty sweet with maple an brown sugr, definitely leans towards the sweet side of things, a small amount of roasted malt makes an appearance but hardly balances out the malty sweetness

Mf: light body, mellow carbonation

O: this is perhaps the sweetest brown ale I have had, lacing in balance, almost tastes like artificial sweetness is in the beer
