What makes this beer different: Very flavorful for a brown ale
Will I be drinking this again: They are retiring the beer, so probably not.
7/27/2010: I remember reading somewhere that this beer is being retired by Goose Island. Sad because before I even knew much about craft beer, this was one beer that I could easily recognize. I guess with the big beer fad going on lately they decided to focus on higher ABV beers.
Goose Island Nut Brown has a nice toasty smell, with some brown sugar in the mix. The flavor is really good; nutty, caramel, roasty, and I am even getting a little bit of chocolate in the finish. Very drinkable. Average mouthfeel and carbonation for the style, although admittedly I could never pick out the difference between an English/American Brown Ale as far as styles go.
Picture of the day: This chick needs a reality check.
