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.

McGarnigle (585) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Bomber. Deep mahogany/brown colored beer. Not an especially big beer (or sexy style), it has a rich malt body and just a bit of hops. Lots of chocolate malt makes it a bit roasty and dry. A bit too much so for my taste, but it’s still nice.

Nuffield (3892) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Roasted, nutty, easy drinking; decent color and appearance. A good representation of the style and distinctive in its own way. (at 2015 Summer Beer Dabbler, St. Paul, MN)

emartell (293) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - AUG 30, 2015
Aromas a nuez, caramelo, en menor proporción malta tostada y ligeramente frutos rojos. Cuerpo redondo, color café con destellos rojizos, carbonatacion media y corona de espuma media con ligera retención. En boca nuez, caramelo y malta. Al paladar se integran bien los sabores de la nuez y el caramelo, se percibe maltosa y las notas tostadas se detectan en el retrogusto. En general una buena cerveza, no empalagosa y fácil de beber

jdjuice (463) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - AUG 30, 2015
Probably the most impressive to me of Alesmith’s standard IPA, XPA, ESB, and Nut Brown lineup. Really well executed use of malts to get a complex balance of grains, roastiness, biscuit, bread, faint chocolate, nuttiness, etc., that is exceedingly easy to drink but also has a good heft to it.

23Skidoo (38) - SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2015
Bottled Mar. 2014. Supposedly doesn’t improve with age, but doesn’t feel like it degraded either. Great aroma: caramel, nuts (yes!), toffee, hints of coffee. Light, but not watery. Velvety mouthfeel. Moderate lingering bitterness, just enough. Very good, will be a new benchmark for the style for me.

Towey1989 (729) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle at The London Craft Beer Festival. Pours a clear chestnut brown colour with a fizzy tan head. Aroma of toasty malts, nuts, caramel, slight vanilla, subtle toffee, and some spicy, earthy hops. Taste of toasty, roasted malts, nuts, caramel, some vanilla fudge and slight earthy hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A bittersweet, toffee, nut, slight earthy hop bitterness in the finish. Such a smooth, malty beer with a nice earthy bitterness to balance it out. The best American brown ale I’ve had so far.

portableparty (2104) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2015

abemorsten (3266) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2015
655 ml flaske. Klar mahognifarget kropp med et lavt lysebrunt skum. Mørk karamell tydeligst i duften, men også hint av tørt løv. God toastet maltsødme, litt bitter sjokoalde og et hint av syrlighet. Hint av røstede toner i ettersmaken. Medium fylde. Denne hadde tålt lagringen godt med tanke på at den ble flasket 22 februar 2013.
