This doesn't have the complex, rich, fruity character of that famous Nut Brown from across the pond. But it is chestnut colored, malt forward while still being refreshing and eminently drinkable. Malt is smooth and lightly chocolaty but there is no overbearing sweetness on the palate. Just a touch of slightly floral and minty hop character makes up the balance not provided by a more characterful yeast. This is a style I'm very fond of (mild and brown ales in general) which has virtually disappeared from the American landscape. Kudos to Rhinegeist for a thoroughly enjoyable pint.
(Cincinnati was a great beer city back in the day, and seems to have an interesting beer culture going now. There, a guy from NE Ohio said it. I'll be hiding in my basement now. Right next to the keezer.)
