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.

Kind of like newcastle, but without the syrupy sweetness. Dry finish. Great nut brown.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Draught at Fathers Office. Dark brown with a medium beige head. Toasted bread, light roast, coffee, and light spicy hop aromas. The flavor has light toffee and sweet caramel with coffee and light burnt/roasted flavors and some dark chocolate. Medium-light body with overly fizzy carbonation. The flavor profile is spot on, but the malt could be a little more substantial and the carbonation was too high.

jgb9348 (5524) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Deep dark brown coloured body with a nice tan head. Aroma of coffee, nuts, chocolate and plenty of malt! Medium to Full-bodied; Deep malty taste with nuts and some hops showing through. Aftertaste has some sugars and a little fruitiness - very well done. Overall, a very well balanced brown ale - worth trying if you are here in San Diego! I sampled this beer on draught at the Liar’s Club in San Diego, California on 23-September-2006.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - APR 29, 2009
Growler. First rating in new house. Pours clear brown with a creamy khaki head. The nose and flavor are both quite nutty with a bit of toasted bread and some herbal hoppy notes. This is a bit fuller bodied than your typical brown ale. Nice carbonation with nice malty dry finish. There’s a lot of nice things going on here, but in the end its a brown ale.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Growler from a trade with WeeHeavySD. Pours a clear dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of nuts, caramel, and roast. Great flavor, a little nutty, but a little light body. Great session beer...I might have been able to drink a growler by myself :)

Sample from a growler. Dark brown pour with a medium tan head. Malty aroma with nuts and coffee. Creamy vanilla flavor that is a tad sweet up front, followed by a roasty coffee and nuts finish. Truly outstanding for a brown ale.

Thanks to Homerwantsbeer for sharing a growler. The beer pours a clear dark amber-brown color with a miniscule white head that disappears quickly. Spots and short strings on the glass. Equal parts fruit and malt in the nose. Medium, clean body with flavors of malt, caramel and sweet fruit, and a mildly hoppy undertone throughout. The finish is sweet chocolate malt with a fruity/nutty aftertaste. Pretty good all around.
