Nut Checker has a dark brown hue and a toasted toffee flavor. Willamette hops, from the namesake valley in Oregon, are nice mild in this beer. This beer will be maltier and sweeter than a lighter mild ale. The toasted and nutty flavors will mingle nicely with the fruity and herbal hops profile from the Willamette hops. This brown ale is a hybrid of English styles and American hopping. The extra bitterness ties back to testicular cancer, because not checking can lead to a bitter experience.
