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.

In short: Superior yet classic nutty Brown-Ale
How: Hand-bottled flip-top brought to Montreal by WeeHeavySD. Thanks Jon.
The look: Clear ruby brown body with a short-lived beige head (Iím sure a fresh pint on tap would have a good head retention)
In long: Very nutty on the note. Body felt rather full and presented flavours of toasted nuts, crisp caramel and toasted bread. Leafy hops were not very tasty and were happy just to do their balancing job without interfering with the malt flavours. The beer felt creamy yet crisp at the same time. The carbonation wasnít very lively but that was to be expected with a days-old hand-bottled flip-top. Despite the hand-bottled this was one of the best session Brown Ale Iíve had so I can easily imagine how good a fresh pint from a tap must be. The bottle we drank was a 3.5 but because of the hand-bottled thing Iíll be as generous as an oil tycoon to a republican campaign.

MartinT (8396) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2007
My Bottom Line:
This quenching Brown Ale is ripe with nutty caramel and bready tones, a chewy cornucopia of malt flavors for such a low gravity ale which eventually gets balanced out by supporting hop bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the burgundy brown.
-Maltiness reaches chocolate sweetness too.
-The body is lean, but rather round for a beer this gravity.
-I will definitely try this again on tap at the brewery, as it must be excellent fresh.

Hand-bottled; thx Jon!

Poured brown with an off white head. Aroma of chocolate and caramel. Chocolate, nuts, caramel, and some fruit flavors present. Very good brown ale. I wish I could get more around me. Thanks Sick_Boy for letting me try this!

Draft @ Alesmith. Pours a brownish-amber color; light tan head with good retention and lacing. Creamy, oily nut aroma; some chocolate and caramel. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: creamy nuttiness and toasty caramel; viscous; excellent chewiness and generosity for a brown ale; dried fruits and a slightest citrus on the mid-palate. Medium, nutty and creamy finish; excellent brown ale.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Draft at Stone Brewery. Aroma was toasted malt, chocolate malt, and smokiness. Pretty good brown ale, but more of a hybrid with a smoked beer or something.
