Dundee Nut Brown Ale

The Dundee Brewing Company of Rochester, New York is part of the Genesee family.

This is a 5.3% ABV brown ale with natural hazelnut flavors added.  According to the label "CONTAINS ALCOHOL".  No kidding?  It pours a medium-dark brown with tints of ruby.  There is a tall quarter-inch of creamy and foamy off-white head.  The aroma is nutty, not nearly as hazelnut as I had feared, roasted and toasty malt.  There is a good balancing bitterness on the finish.  This is a good, but not great, brown ale.
