brokensail (11077) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Brown in color with a nice finger of khaki head. Strong toasted malt aroma, a nice nuttiness, and a surprising amount of roasted malt. A fair amount of of cocoa, good toffee sweetness, and light scents of burnt nuts. The flavor is a bit more bitter than expected, but still has some toffee and toasted malt sweetness. Lots of roasted malt, almost burnt nuts, and a touch of earthy hops. Heavy on the bitter chocolate at the finish.

hopscotch (9214) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Handbottle... Crystal clear, deep-copper ale with a small, creamy, khaki-colored head. A generous measures of praline and toffee in the nose flanked by a suggestion of milk chocolate. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes toasty, chocolaty and then dry. Excellent nut brown.

daknole (9142) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 30, 2011
Sampled at the BA Spoedway release. This version had a touch more fruit forward, but was drier on the palate. A bit more toasted nuts as well. I could drink a lot of this beer. Another winner.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 16, 2011
On tap at the BA Speedway release. A very good beer! Pours with a deep brown body with a lasting tan head (good lace). Aromas are bready, toasty, grainy (lovely malt presence), brown sugar, fruity and estery (classic british yeast notes). Very nicely blended, rich, but not heavy, enjoyable. Flavors are deep, nutty, malty, brown sugar, toasty, bready, light caramel, estery and fruit. I could drink this all day. Very smooth, creamy, medium bubbles with a toasty finish. Very well done. I drank the 12oz sample with ease and enjoyment!

JohnnyJ (4392) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Draft at the BA Speedway release. Cloudy brown pour, with a medium sized sticky light tan head. Nuts, bread, lightly toasty, lightly fruity, chestnut, and a bit of earthy hops. A really nice brown ale, Nautical is already one of my favorite browns, even though I am not a big fan of the style.

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - JUN 9, 2011
First rating. Special version of this brew on tap at alesmith. Pours brown with a tan head. Nose is very nicely roasted and distinct. Taste is sweet, rich, oatty and different. Likey

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JUN 30, 2011
Draft @ Alesmith during the recent BA Speedway release - This beer is similar to the Nautical Brown. However, it has a touch more esters, a little more bitter and drier. Overall, it’s good, but I like the Nautical Brown better.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Sample. Rating #5. Nice little change to the nut brown. Seemed a bit drier than the regular version and it’s still quite good as the regular of course. (1767)

I love their brown ale and to make it with the english yeast was a nice surprise. A little sweeter and not as nutty.
