COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Nut Brown Ale is a full bodied English-style brown ale with a deep mahogany color. We use six different types of premium malted barley to create a flavor that includes hints of chocolate, raisins, dates and almonds. The malty sweet finish is balanced by a smooth bitterness and a subtle fruitiness in flavor and hop aroma.

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 3, 2003
Dark appearance, with sweet vanilla and caramel aromas. A good brown ale, sweeter than most, with a sweet, hoppy, metallic tasting finish. Though I'm not a fan of browns, I can say that this hits the mark.

Dark amber from the tap in Battle Creek. Dusty grain sweetness in the nose. Sweet caramel flavors with an astringent strength to it. Nice average session beer.

deep brown color with a thin light beige head..big fat bubbles. aroma is mostly chocolate with a little alcohol. one of the few browns that i would say isnt really all that nutty. slightly roasted malts dominate this beer in my opinion.

Tap. Pours a drab brown but has some lighter tan/red tinges. Quite clear. Small off-white head that lasts. Huge amounts of lacing. Starts with a good light caramel malt which develops into a medium-light body with some nice drier hops flavor. The finish has a nutty/roasty flavor that is quite dry as well and mildly bitter. Alcohol is barely perceptible, though there is a touch of something possibly metallic. Overall a great balance, just not quite as much complexity as I'm looking for compared to some of the best browns I've had. The malt is very subtle and gets pushed around by the hops and dry, nutty, raisin-walnut flavor. As I finish, I swear there is a hint of citrus hops towards the finish. Maybe not quite citrus, but a tart fruitiness, that seems a bit out of place with a nut brown ale. Aroma is of dry roasted malt and maybe some maple/walnut type aroma; like a waffle with syrup on it. Carbonation was not a problem.

I'm not the biggest fan of Nut Browns. Hoppy microbrew. Sweet and very bitter. Not Arcadia's best.

BBB63 (6154) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 6, 2003
Reddish brown hue with a small but lasting off-white head, some lacing, light to medium-bodied. Nutty, chocolate, coffee aroma with a undertone of orange and barnyard smell. Sweet initial taste is replaced by a dry hoppy finish, nicely balanced. Very dry and fizzy mouthfeel. Above average brown ale, recommended.

It has a transparent brown color and a decent thick head. It smells like sweet cocolate. The flavor is rich with creamy notes of chocolate, maple syrup, nuts and malty goodness. I enjoyed this nut brown, definatly worth a try.

Dark brown color. Some chocolate raisin tones in the nose. Doesn't really follow through in the flavor. Mostly a thin tart grape with a short bitter finish.
