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.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2008 on tap. Sampled at the San Diego Festival of Beers 2006 9/22/06. I’ve had this beer a few times at the brewery and it always seemed a little thin. This time it tasted just right. No scent with little to no head, though I believe it was merely the fault of the pourer as my friend got one with a nice head. The color is nice and deep dark brown and the taste is exactly what you’d expect from something of that color. It was deep dark malty and delicious.

On draft at the Liar’s Pub in Mission Beach. A very good nut brown. Pours a deep brown color with a modest head. Malty aroma with hints of nuts and oats. Deep nut flavor, with malt blended in as well. Roasted as well. Kind of overpowering, but i liked it.

On tap. Dark brown in colour with a medium sized head. Malty and sweet but also with a nice bitter hoppyness. Notes of caramel and nuts.

On tap at O’Brien’s. Pours the rich, transparent color of California redwood with a thin layer of marshy ivory head. The aroma is brimming with malty tones highlighted by loads of toasted hazelnuts. Nutty, fleshy crystal malt husks dance in front of my nostrils. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated mouthfeel. Some hints of light raisin fruitiness with a smidgen of cinnimon spice, but mostly just pleasant dark malts. There’s a bit of an acidic tinge as well thats a pleasant addition to the flavor profile. I’m starting to bit up some very light clove spice in the final smack as well, along with some dry mocha powder. Well balanced, definitive brown ale.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - AUG 2, 2006
Really nutty brew! Lots of nut flavor, with caramel hints as well. abit more roasted malts than I was expecting, maybe abit too much. Still a good beer, but not one of my favorites from Alesmith.

(Draught, Stuffed Sandwich) Pours a deep brown body with an average-sized beige head. Aroma of molasses, nuts, chocolate, and roasted malt. Flavor of cocoa, dark fruits, nuts, and caramel. An enjoyable brown ale!

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - JUL 29, 2006
On tap pours deep brown with ruby highlights and a nice big off white long lasting head. Aroma is mostly chocolate with carmel and some subtle hopping. Nice bold and chewy brown with mostly chocolate flavors, would be nice if it had a bit more hops to help out, but a good example of style.

marcus (7311) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 29, 2006
On tap at AleSmith. This dark brown ale poured with a fluffy tan head. Very malty aroma and a medium chocolatey body. Not sweet or bitter, and the finish is a bit chalky. Overall, a very soliid brew.

sample at brewery. maybe i’m biased against the style, but i didn’t find much to write home about here. surprising chocolate, pretty balanced and smooth. i guess i spent most of my time while drinking it considering my next move.
