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.

ClubGonzo (5300) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a deep brown, ruby-hued body, crowned with a medium khaki-colored head retention of some longevity. Nose is nutty malt tones, grains, almond-like sweetness, hints of toffee and soft, mild coffee. Taste is nutty, biscuit-like dry malt tones with hints of filter coffee, toffee, straw and grains. Complex, yet drinkable. Full to medium body, medium carbonation and a semi-dry finish with some subdued hop notes. Pretty enjoyable, but I suspect brown ale will never be my favorite style, generally speaking. Iíd really like to taste the Mild version of this, as it was originally brewed to be! :-)

larsga (7155) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2013
Medium beige head. Clear deep dark reddish brown body with carbonation. Earthy spicy nutty aroma with banana-like fruit notes. Dry earthy nutty banana-like taste with faint background acidity. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry vinegary nutty earthy aftertaste with wild berry sooty notes. L.ingering finish of rye crisp bread. Itís not bad, but itís not right, either. Somethingís gone wrong with this bottle. (0.65l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo. Label looked like the one in the photo, including the "English style" bit, but ABV was given as 5%.)

NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle from Binnyís in Bloomington. Iím fairly certain this is the same beer as the English Brown Ale, so whatever. Pours a deep brown with a tan head. Huge head, actualy. Nose is nutty, cocoa, light herbal hops and a fruity note. On tasting, drying roast, nutty and cocoa forward. Moderate bitterness overall and a clean finish. Pretty fantastic brown, though overall not my first choice of style.

arminjewell (9236) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Pour on tap, dark murky brown pour with slightly off white head, aroma brought notes of cocoa powder, hints of caramel, toffee, slight hints of grain, nice nutty notes, slight fruity notes as well with an earthy and spicy note. Taste is a nice mix of toffee, dark fruits, nice caramel, brown sugar, nutty notes go into some spice, slight cocoa powder, finishing slightly sweet. Nicely crafted.

Tastes like the nuts are in there for fans of nuts. Good flavor all the way through. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
