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.

8 oz taster at brewery, Medium brown color with a light malty aroma. Body is smooth, sweet and nutty. Very lighty and appropriately hopped, especially coming from the west coast. Finish is roasted and long lasting. This is one of the best brown ales I’ve had.

This was great. Very nutty and roasty aroma. Very nutty flavor with brown sugar and roasted malts, and caramel. Very smooth beer and quite drinkable even if you’re a beer noob.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 2, 2010
UPDATED: APR 3, 2010 On draft at AleSmith (San Diego, CA): Pours out a beautiful, translucent medium brown, topped with a one-finger tan head. Aroma of smoked almonds and other various nuts, whole coffee beans, milk chocolate, and lightly roasted malts. Flavor is similar to the nose. More smoke, deep malt bite, nutty, and lightly hoppy. Very delicious. Wish there was more flavor to the finish. Drinkability: If this was a blind tasting, I’d know I was drinking something exceptional. Pairing: Cornflake crusted chicken seasoned with various herbs. Rebuy: Yes. #375 on 02042010, DG.

On tap at Blue Palms. Hmmm--this must be another of my 500+ rates in one of my notebooks, never to be entered in the database. Clear copper brown with a one finger beige head that stayed for the duration. Toasty malts and toasted nuts dominate the aroma with some roasted coffee notes. Flavor follows suit with just a tinge of caramel and some hazelnut and vanilla. Bitterness peaked at a 3, slightly roasty and dry. A little pine hops.Moderate carbonation with a light body. Very good.

A: The pour is a deep, opaque brown color with a mild cream colored head. S: The nose is very nutty, as you would expect. There are some nice toffee and toasted, biscuity malt aromas as well, along with some caramel sweetness. T: A rich nutty and toffee flavor with a hint of coffee, perhaps. The sweetness of the bready malts is the backbone of the beer. M: A medium body with a moderate level of carbonation with a slight creaminess. D: I’m not always the biggest fan of brown ales as they tend to be a bit sweet, but this had a nice combination of nutty and toasted flavors that I found inviting.

joeneugs (5355) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Pours very dark reddish brown with a beige head. The aroma is very nutty with some chocolate. The flavor is very nice with nuts, chocolate, brown sugar, and just supremely balanced with a great mouthfeel. This should be the gold standard for brown ales.

Classically nutty brown ale. Interesting smoky complexity balanced out by a nutty sweetness. Brown in color with a white frothy head. Almost no noticeable bitterness in the finish.

Draft at the brewery tasting room. Poured a clear dark brown color with a tan head and orange highlights. Nice aroma and flavor with roasted nut, milk chocolate, and light grass elements. Medium bodied and delicately sweet. Great brown ale.

rmhancock (21) - USA - JAN 23, 2010
Deep brown , chestnut to ruby hue. Rich malty flavor balanced by a slight chocolate finish. Not too hoppy. Clean, fresh malt aroma heightened by the nutty scent of the chocolate malt and fruit aromas from the hops and fermentation. Mouthfeel (body/texture): Smooth
