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.

Light brown. Thick head. Drinkable. Not very nutty. Hints of raisen. Average body. I expect more from Arcadia, and I expect more from nut beers.

Nephilium (1327) - Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Mild nutty aroma, pours a reddish-brown with a thin white head. Thereís a touch of roasted notes and a bit of sweetness, the alcohol is noticeable in this beer, which is surprising considering the low ABV. Itís light on the palate, and drinkable... but there are much better Brown ales out there.

Mahogany pour with a small off white head. Hints of chocolate, raisins, dark fruit. Mild bitterness on the finish. Thin bodied with good carbonation. Decent beer but I will reach for other browns next time Iím in the mood.

Almond and caramel flavor in a medium bodied brew. There was a floral smell and a bubbly palate. There was a deceptively big alcohol taste.

This is a cloudy red brown beer w/ a foamy head. Mild and earthy w/ a hint of sweetness, this is a drinkable brown with mild carbonation. Toffee-like malts dominate w/ a touch of roast and firm, hoppy bitterness in the finish. There is a very slight metallic off-not in the finish but it only bothers me if I look for it and doesnít hinder drinkability.

Small off-white, light brown head. Hazy body that was lightly cloudy. Color was a dark cross between red and amber. There was a light toffee and nutty aroma. The body was medium with a thin texture and average carbonation. Overall, there was good color, light toffee nutty aroma, no bitterness. OK.

Onslow (1135) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Clear reddish-broan brew with frothy off white head. Looks like a cola except the head lasts longer. Aroma of malts, roasted malts, nuts, dark fruit. Taste has a littel sweet at the start, followed by roasted grains, hints of chocolate, a bit of nuttiness, some dark fruit elements. Finsih is lightly bitter with burnt grain overtones. Palate is a little thin. Very good!

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Clear reddish brown wit a very large brown head and wispy lacing. Aroma of heavy grains with caramel, nuts, roasted malt and dough. Taste of moderately roasted malts, nuts, chestnut, light chocolate and light maple. Thinner and malty, itís ok.

Bottle at home. Aroma: lightly nutty, not over powering. Appearance: poors a light brown, slightly red, not much head. Taste: not as much nut flavor as I was expecting for a nut brown, background flavors are a little strong but none overly distinguishable, maybe chocolate. Palate: seems heavy but drinkable. Overall: enjoyable, not great as far as nut browns are concerned.
