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

A- Poured with a brown body into a pint glass. One finger light tan head forms with decent retention and a silky texture. Small foamy ring leaves no lace.
S- Caramel, nutty malt, buttery and lager yeast hints mostly. Has some dark fruit and a bit of an adjunct feel.
T- Onone hand there are nice toasty nutty malt, caramel, raisin and roast hints. On the other hand this is sort of brought down by a diluted macro yeast and adjunct flavor. Some Euro hop notes, grassy and herbal.
MF- Slightly watery feel with foamy high carbonation. Slight bitterness left on the palate.
Brings some pretty good malt and yeast flavors but it ends up feeling diluted and made with adjuncts.

Poured a 1/2" off-white head. Clear walnut brown color. Very little smell to it, only a hint of malt. Taste gives you some toasted malt but it's really a very simple toasted brown and comes across more like a glass of tea. There is a crisp lager finish to it. I expected much more from this sample, but I guess I don't know why, because it's still just cheap mainstream stuff.
