Tommyknocker "Maple Nut Brown Ale"
Tommyknocker Brewery - Idaho Springs, Colorado USA
American brown Ale (ABV 4.5%) (IBU 20)

[Suggested Glassware: Dimpled Mug]


Rating: 2.9/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a clear dark amber brown with a large (2-3 finger) light brown rocky head that steadily diminished down to a thin film and large collar, which produced good sticky lacing.

The aroma was kind of faint of a toasted chocolate malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of caramel and maple syrup.

The taste was lightly sweet and a little malty with a mild caramel sweetness and a hint of chocolate early on, finishing mildly roasty with a slightly pronounced maple syrup presence towards the end. The flavor was short lived with the sweet roastiness fading quickly from the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body and watery in texture with a mild carbonation.

Overall I found this brew to be a bit light for a Brown Ale, although it did posses a good roasty taste and smooth drinkability, which makes it a perfect candidate for a session beer…
