Mt. Carmel Nut Brown Ale (6/10)

Cincinnati's Mt. Carmel Brewing Company produces this Nut Brown Ale.

It pours a mahogany color, kind of a coppery dark brown, with a finger thick white head.  It leaves behind a thick layer of lacing that tends to stick around.

The aroma is hoppy and yeasty.

The flavor starts and finishes hoppy, not unbearably so, but enough to offset almost every other flavor I pick up in the beer.  I got some hints of smoky roasted grain and maybe some maple, but hops is definitely dominant here.  Since I'm decidedly not a hop head, I'm giving it a 6/10.

I had this at World of Beer at Easton, but it may be available elsewhere in Columbus.

IBU:  unknown, but I'd estimate about a 45
ABV: 6.0%
My Rating: 6/10
