COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AleSmith Nut Brown is a tribute to one of our favorite British styles. Deep mahogany in color, its rich, malt-forward flavor profile balances notes of biscuit, mild cocoa and earthy hops. A creamy mouthfeel and full body enhances its drinkability, making Nut Brown an extremely sessionable ale that embodies our commitment to quality.

EithCubes (5551) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 22, 2016
12oz bottle, BOTTLED ON 02/11/16. Nose light roast and strong cocoa powder, nutty with bg red fruit. Pour is brown that still lets a lot of light through up even close to the tip, gradient somewhat to the bottom, where there’s a lot of ruby and some amber seepage. Head short rocky tan. Only lightly crisp, lots of red berry that starts to sweeten up fast and resemble sliming clove, but the backed-off cocoa and light cola moments are pleasant, as is the faint woodiness and blacker malt. Low but very smooth bitterness, a great mix of malt and grain flavors, smooth on the whole and pretty quaffable. Medium body, clean and still fresh-tasting. Would be reaching a bit for me to call it classically British, but it is distinctly not in line with normal American browns, and there’s interesting own character to boot. [2016.08.22: 3.7]

mmmbeer (1389) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2016
12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a barely heavily brown with darkened maroon shading transparent when held to a light source. Dark tan ring about the glass for a head, nominal lacing. Aroma of toffee, baker’s chocolate, and nuts. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt is finely sweetened, middle has some firmness to it, finish has some nuts in it. Could drink this all day and not complain one bit.

ignorant (84) - madrid, SPAIN - AUG 19, 2016
dark brown with brown reflections still translucent ruby with bright, fine white foam. clean fresh aroma and robust roasted malts, nuts, vanilla or caramel accented by the nutty aroma of chocolate malt and fruity hops and fermentation. Soft chocolate flavor, roasted nuts and nut. The pleasant light sweetness in the mouth is balanced with a subtle bitterness that prevents the beer is cloying and with a slight dryness produced by the chocolate malt. Feeling very soft mouth, somewhat dry.

willisread (2275) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle from AEON liquors. Pours a clear brown with a finger of foam that dissipates fairly quickly. Toasted almond, cacao nib and toasted bread all come off the nose with a touch of grassy hops as it warms. More of the same on the palate, slightly sweet though. Finish is drier. Not bad but nothing special really.

Bottle in wine glass. This is a real muddy one. Nutty and brown sure is a fair description.

eduardovl (1353) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 9, 2016
330ml served in a pint glass. Pours a dark amber to nut brown color with lots of suspended particles inside. Forms a big and creamy beige head with medium retention that forms some small spotty lacings in the glass. Nose is sweet and roasted. Strong notes of toffee, chocolate, caramel malts and nuts. Grassy and resin hops style. Taste is slightly sweet, in overall. Strong notes of toffee, chocolate, caramel malts and nuts. Hints of grass and resin. Mild hops bitterness. Medium, creamy and very smooth body. Chocolate and nuts in the aftertaste. Good drinkability. An AleSmith never disappoints.
