Best by October 2012:
Into a pint glass::
A: deep brown colored body with a small off-white one finger head that has no lacing, body is too hazy for any bubbles to be seen rising.
S: some caramel and nuts up front with a bit of roastiness.
T: nuttiness in front of the caramel and roastiness and gives a slight sweet finish.
M: medium with a good balance between wet and dry. It is mostly creamy.
O: I've been seeking this out for a while and am glad I finally got it. However, perhaps slightly disappointed since it wasn't as good as I was hoping

This beer pours a bold, clear copper color with no head or lace. The aroma is nutty with a hint of bread crust. The flavor leads with roasted nuts with caramel and mild smoke notes. It's mouthfeel is light-medium and the finish is dry. Gritty McDuffs Best Brown is a decent beer, recommended.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle dated April 2012. Sampled on April 27, 2012. It is a nice looking albeit headless beer with dark amber tones and good clarity. The aroma is of malts and nuts mainly with a clean enough hop note thrown in. The body is thin to medium. The taste has a more than moderate bitterness to it along with malts with an off-dry finish. There are better browns out there but this is alright.

Bottle dates 'til June.
Clear, auburn brown. Thin gristle head is gone by mid-glass. Nutty aroma with a swampy tea hop vein throughout. Some bread at the end. Taste is nutty and toffee sweet malt with some hop tea spice to hold it all together. A bit thin but I'm treating this as a session beer so I'll let it slide.
Gritty's Best Brown hits all necessary points for a session brown but doesn't reach beyond them. It does come across as "together" and the sum of GBB's parts are better than any individual aspect.
