Brilliant clarity, nice khaki head that lingers.

Aroma is very nutty, with toasted malt and caramel sweetness contrasting fruity specialty malt notes.

Flavor is equally toasted and nutty, though the specialty malt fruitiness is more pronounced. In the end, the toasted malt dominates, with a dry, lightly bitter finish.

Appearance: Nice "smoke". Pours a dark, but clear brown; transparent. 3/4" beige head, quickly fades to frothy 1/8". nice retention. Good lacing rings.

Aroma: Caramel malts; roast, but not the heavy bloody/flinty smell some brown ales have. Can smell the maple, especially after it warms up a bit. Distinctive, with a very sweet aroma.

Mouthfeel: Midweight to light.

Taste: Dry, clean arrival, with a roasty, mild sweetness across mid-palate. Slight taste of alcohol; dry finish with a slight lingering roastiness.

Overall: Wow. Really impressed. Glad I bought two. Will be buying again, a real winner.

Mt. Carmel Nut Brown Ale has a medium, fluffy, cream-colored head, a sort of brilliant rust-red-brown appearance, and a lace curtain left on the glass. The aroma is of sweetness, maybe some syrup, malt, and possibly a bright fruit of some sort. Taste is of sweetness, a touch of syrup, brown bread crust, and a noticeable, somewhat unpleasant bitterness, like one will get from pecan shell. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Mt. Carmel Brown Ale finishes semi-wet and easy drinking.
