look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Consumed 8/24/12

Appearance: Clear, light brown - more of a dark amber with a lot of ruby when held up to the light - off-white head, fades to a creamy ring, leaves some lacing

Smell: Brown ale malts, caramel toffee, and some lightly toasted malts - a light sweetness throughout - sweet hazelnut coffee - overall, kind of smells like hazelnut coffee with lots of sugar and Pacman yeast

Taste: As the name would imply, this is basically a brown ale with hazelnut flavor - caramel, lightly cooked, lightly toasted, with some toffee - mildly bitter - light hazelnut coffee and some dark bread - sweet, but not too much - very mild and mellow, almost to the point of being watery

Mouthfeel: Unexpectedly light, but nicely smooth, creamy, well-carbonated

Overall: Good if you love hazelnuts, otherwise "meh"

This is a decent brown ale, but it is only memorable because of the hazelnut flavor. And the hazelnuts are not even very aggressive. I would be happy to drink this again, but I certainly do not feel an urge to go out and buy bombers.
