Hazelnut Brown AleHazelnut Brown Ale
Notes: A traditional mild brown ale brewed with English malts, hops, and fresh Hazelnuts. Malty and nutty with a mild hop presence makes this Brown ale approachable for novice beer drinkers, but can satisfy those who like a malty dark ale.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass at the Carolina Ale House in Columbia, SC. The appearance is a clear dark amber with a large white head. The aroma is sweet caramel malt.

Filled from a growler station about two miles from the brewery. Enjoyed with company while brewing, the collective review of this beer was unanimous: River Rat needs to go back to the drawing board on this brown ale. The look of the beer was spot on but it lacked in taste, especially on the back end, where the mildly malty impression gives way to a, well, watery finish. This is by no means an indictment of River Rat, who has some excellent offerings; I was just expecting a little more.
