Full Sail Nut Brown Ale

CIMG7308

This new one from Full Sail features 2-row, Crystal, and Chocolate malts with Fuggle and Mt. Hood hops. Let’s check it out.

Stats:
American Brown Ale. 6.0% ABV. 31 IBUs. Oregon. January-March Availability.

Nice dark brown color. Decent head on this one, nice a fluffy, but it does tend to fade.

The nose is pretty much what you’d expect. It’s got a little bit of caramel, nutty-ness, and hint of vanilla.

Mouthfeel is actually quite light. Light-medium body with high-medium carbonation. I’d prefer to see more body here.

Caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, just a hint of toasted nuts on the finish. Backend isn’t too bad, but the flavor overall is awfully light.

Not the best effort from Full Sail here. 81 points.
