Samuel Adams "Hazel Brown"
Boston Beer Company - Boston, Massachusetts USA
American Brown Ale (ABV 5.2%) (IBU 20)

[Suggested Glassware: Dimpled Mug]

Rating: 3.7/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a clear medium brown with an average (1-2 finger) light brown creamy head that reduced down to a medium film and large collar with fair runny lacing.

The aroma was most definitely loaded with Hazelnut and also had a toasted caramel malt and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee and a slight coffee roastiness.

The taste was malty, nutty and lightly sweet with a hint of caramel early on, with the finish possessing a mild toffee presence and a roasty coffee ending. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with the roasty sweet nutty taste fading ever so slowly into the back ground.

Mouthfeel was a step or two below medium in body and quite creamy in texture with a good solid medium carbonation.

Overall a fantastic, unique tasting Brown Ale that had all the flavors blending so well that it made this drinking experience simply wonderful. Only thing I wish is that they sold it in six packs year round...
