Nutty Brewnette is a unique American-style brown ale. A blend of four different dark malts produces a flavor profile that is sweet with "nutty" notes like Newcastle. But a healthy dose of hops makes this beer hoppier and more balanced than most English brown ales.

Decent enough brown (not a big fan of browns personally). Brown in color (go figure) with no head (at least by the time it got to me). Slight roasted aroma. Start slightly malty sweet, top thin, middle bland, finish had some sweetness.

bytemesis (3683) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Tap in San Jose. Pours chestnut brown with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is quite malty, nutty, bready, a bit of worry sweetness. Flavor is nutty, toffee, roasted malts, a bit of smoke perhaps, medium sweet and light bitter. Some acidity. Lightish body.

"a little thin and not as hoppy as the brewer states. not bad, but nothing exciting. iíd put it as a similar beer to Newcastle...maybe slightly better, but not worth the price."

BJís Nutty Brewnette is not the most traditional but is a nice session brown. Darker brown pour emitting a light floral nose. Taste is kind of floral and lighter than most browns with not a lot of malt forward. Nutty Brewnette is a nice session ale but not real traditional or too creative.

snoworsummer (2610) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Draft at BJís Tysons Corner. Pours dark brown with a thin, fizzy light brown head. Smells like caramel, nutty, bready malt, light hops, herbs, some doughy yeast with light honey. Moderate sweetness with light acidity and bitterness. Medium body and low carbonation. Creamy finish.

kramer (5172) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Clear amber brown body with a thin fizzy beige head. The nose is very nutty and toasty, smells like thereís some artificial flavoring here. The flavor is pretty heavy on the nutty flavor as well, but not convinced itís a flavoring. Some husky and toasty notes on the back end. Light to medium bodied with fizzy soft carbonation. Ok, but pretty forgettable.

Tonkun (930) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Tap. Clear brown pour. Nuts, bread and caramel. Raisin, caramel in a medium slightly oily body. Nice

This poured a lighter brown with an off white head. Aroma was nuts, and toast and caramel. Flavor was the same, decent for the style really.
