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.

On tap at Alesmith with Andy, James and Dallas for Dallas’ bachelor weekend. Almost black pour with light brown head that leaves a patchy lacing on the plastic cup this was served in. Aroma is nuts, but taste is not overwhelmingly so, which for browns, gets points in my book. Mouthfeel and flavor are porter-like and there is a definite sweetness in the finish.

On draft. Pours a reddish brown with a small light tan head that has good retention and leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is a good almond nuttiness, some caramel, light brown sugar, some light peanut, and some light coffee. The initial taste is sweet with caramel, some brown sugar, then a strong almond nuttiness. The finish has a light coffee bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
On tap at the brewery, served in a tasting glass. Pours hazy brown with a moderate, fine tan head. The head fades slowly and leaves a small amount of lace. The nose is nutty, with roasty notes, caramel, pine and earth. The flavour is medium malty sweet and nutty with caramel, toasted malts and lots of resiny hops. The finish is medium in length and balanced, with herbal hops. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a very nice English style brown ale. it has a nice mix of nutty malts and a generous hop bouquet. 2011-06-05

Goodgrief (1992) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - APR 14, 2011
Sampled at brewery. Dark brown pour, strong nutty aroma with hints of some sweet spice or something. Nutty and sweet, caramel and toasty. Some odd sweetness that wasn’t enjoyable. Well crafted, but not a favorite example of the style.

Growler thanks a ton to Joe! Pours a dark mahogany color with a medium grey head. A sweet nose of toasted malts, nutty and some chocolates. The flavor is a nice NBA; sweet fruity malts, light chocolate, milky, toast, earthy. Very smooth. A nice brew. Certainly shows the versatility of AleSmith.
