poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, served at room temp.

dark amber beer with minimal bubble showing supports a Pecan Sandy colored head. Good lacing.

aroma: faint caramel with equally faint hoppiness. Alcohol esters present. the aroma is good but not very strong.

mouthfeel: is good, fully and chewy.

taste: malt bomb like eating whole wheat bread, a touch of sweetness with just the right amount of hops to cut through the malty sweetness.

notes: surprisingly good, easily the best Dundee beer I've had. will buy again.

Clear chestnut brown with a solid finger-plus of off white head. Decent retention.

A bit of esters, some floral hopping, and a healthy dose of toasted malt. Hazelnut aroma is like watered down frangelico.

Sweet toasted malts upfront, then some fairly clean bitterness, followed by caramel and hazelnut. A bit sweet for me. Surprisingly elegant and drinkable.

Medium bodied with lowish carbonation.

A surprisingly well done take on an northern english brown. A bit too sweet for the style, but the hazelnut flavoring is well integrated. An easy drinker for sure, but well made.

Appearance: Pours out a clear, dark garnet-hued body with a sensibly sized, ivory-hued head.

Smell: Sweetish, malty notes of semi-sweet chocolate, pale malts, toasted caramel, and the addition of hazelnut over a thin dried herb backdrop.

Taste: Pale malts, chocolaty malts, and caramel-tasting malts melding together, along with the dash of hazelnut flavoring, to give an overall nutty taste, as one might expect and rightfully demand given a cheeky squirrel on the front label. Lightly spicy, faintly floral hops with a low bitterness. Sweetish, still reasonably nutty on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Fairly smooth mouthfeel.

Overall: A pleasing nut brown ale; simple, but solidly structured. While it's not quite a Rogue Hazelnut Nectar, the entire Dundee 12-pack mixer cost me only a few quarters more than a six-pack of Rogue's.

My local trader, Tone77, brought over a whole buncha beers for me the other day and I am anxious to try all of them. I am not striving for fancy or chasing after the latest hot commodity, but instead sampling as widely and variously as possible.

From the bottle: "Originally brewed using the Yorkshire square system of fermentation, the nut brown ale calls the North of England home. A hint of hazelnut, a dash of rich caramel and a sprinkle of chocolate malt all intertwine with the flowery bouquet of Willamette hops to produce a round-bodied ale worthy of its homeland. Take a leaf out of our buddy, Cyril the red squirrel's book, and enjoy a Dundee Nut Brown Ale in your own drey. (Drey is a squirrel's nest. See, you learned something too.)"

Ha! I like learning while I drink. Cyril, by the way, is featured on the front label, in his smoking jacket with a lit pipe, an open nut brown ale and an acorn cap. I will be forced to make do with just a beer.

My aggro pour created a two-plus finger cap of fizzy light-tan head with moderate retention. I could really smell the hazelnut on the nose. Color was a deep-brown with NE-quality clarity. As the head subsided, I leaned in for a better whiff and the hazelnut was still very evident, but now with a chocolaty quality. Mouthfeel was medium-to-full, approaching, but not quite achieving creaminess. It was a sweet beer, to be sure, with the chocolate and hazelnut interacting nicely on the tongue to give it sort of a candy bar quality. It was on the finish that I caught the floweriness of the hops, and by flowers, they mean lilac, violet, or something equally perfume-like in its scent. Overall, not a bad beer, but just a bit too sweet for a self-avowed hophead.
