COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a traditional English style Nut Brown. It's slightly higher in gravity than our Pale Ale and gets its deep walnut hue from rich Belgian caramel malts and dark roasted British malts. English Fuggle hops are used in both the kettle and "dry hopped" during maturation to give our Nut Brown an earthy, balanced bitterness and a delicate fresh hop aroma, without that over-hopped bite. This is an excellent beer for the colder months and goes well with mussels, lamb and the richer, fuller flavored cheeses.

ChainGangGuy (4370) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 30, 2009
Appearance: Clear, brownish-amber body with a small, faintly beige-colored head. Lovely! Smell: Earthy, toasted nut nose mainly, with lesser notes fo roasted malt and brown sugar. Spicy hop scent in back with a faint touch of grassiness to it. Taste: Nutty dark caramel taste with hints of roast and brown sugar, though itís never overly sweet. Earthy, lightly spicy hop character with a mild bitterness. Finishes a bit dry, and eventually with a bit more lingering bitterness as it warms. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A nice, enjoyable nut brown ale thatís good for a pint or two.

I really enjoy this beer. This is what I expect in a nut brown. This actually has a rich toffee maltiness, with all kind of nutty flavors throughout, mixed with some dry chocolate and cocoa flavors. Highly enjoyable.

A nice session ale here. I caught alot of sour notes in this which was not expected. This beer has a good nutty flavor. Another good one from 5 Sizzions!

Pours a very clear brownish-red with small tan head. Better carbonated than previous vintages. More hop aroma and flavor than other Nut Brown brews. Not too malty with caramel and nutty flavors. Not bad.

Draft at 5 Seasons. This beer had a small sized tan head with fine sized bubbles that quickly and completely dissipated. The body was softly carbonated and transparent with a red-brown hue. The nose was malty, caramel and lightly hoppy. The flavor was mildly hoppy with a fairly smooth and dry mouthfeel. This beer had a fair amount of lacing.

TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 30. This draft brew was enjoyed at the brewery in Atlanta Georgia. Dennis, the owner, treated us royally. He kept bringing sample after sample to our table. We were given every courtesy and treated very well. Thanks to their fine staff. This brew poured a small head of off-white colored finely sized long lasting bubbles that left behind a excellent lace and a softly carbonated transparent medium orange brown colored body. It had a mild malt aroma and a smooth slightly tingly mouthfeel that finished with a very nice brown flavored tingle. It had a nice light brown beer flavor with mellow malty notes.
