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.

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.

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.

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

finally getting my SD ratings in, albeit slowly. on tap at o’briens. pours a dark brown with a thin, light tan head and solid lacing. aroma is very nice with toasted, nutty malts, sweet caramel, mild chocolate, and a hint of dry, earthy hops. flavor was great with big caramel malts, roasted walnuts, bitter cocoa powder, and slight herbal hop notes with a dry, roasted, nutty finish. palate is medium bodied and nicely carbonated and very sessionable. overall, a very nice brown ale.

DialSquare (4203) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2010
From an old rating note - on tap at the brewery. brown pour with light brown head - malt aroma - nuts and oats in the taste. Not much else other than a rating. Would like to try again.

ben4321 (5565) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Location: Had this twice within a few days:
On tap at Neighborhood in San Diego, 1/6/10 and
On tap at the Brewery, 1/8/10

Aroma: The aroma is mostly roasted and nutty, some brown sugar
Appearance: Clearish caramel color with lots of lace
Flavor: Flavor is very sweet and nutty, toasty and sugary
Palate: Medium body, with a very smooth drink
Overall Impression: This was a pretty solid beer, it doesn’t stack up against some of the other stuff that I tried on that trip to AleSmith, but I won’t hold that against it, cause that is some stiff competition. This is a pretty good beer.
