Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar

type: Brown Ale
origin: Newport, Oregon
price: $5.99/22oz

Not bad, in fact pretty good for a brown. It's definitely not something I crave and not too exciting. I mean this brown is better then New Castle, but falls short of Moose Drool (my favorite brown). I think there is more head on the bottle then in the beer, geezuz look at that dome. I would have to say I enjoyed this beer, but really nothing special. Maybe make it an imperial brown and I will be a little more excited, aka more alcohol content then the 6.3% of the hazelnut. You can really taste the hazelnut as with most nut browns, even after, several minutes after, but the initial taste runs a little flat. I won't be buying this again, but if you are unlike me and love browns I would give it a shot. Also Rogue call this beer a nectar, again Rogue you are losing points as I am trying so hard to love you.
