COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BBC Nut Brown Ale has a diverse grain bill which lends this traditional English ale a variety of flavors that coalesce into a remarkably smooth and pleasant drink. Additions of various pale, caramel and dark malts create a smooth, sweet malt profile with hints of roasted nuttiness. Multiple additions of English hops round out the flavors and give this classic beer a true flavor of the Old World.

Sampled from tap on 10/14/2006 at McQuiston’s Malthouse in Madison, Indiana... Dark amber color with a thick creamy head. Mild carbation lending to this beer’s smooth and creamy mouthfeel. The aroma is roasted malt and nuts. Initial flavor is full, rich, malty, weak coffee. Then it becomes nutty and buttery (butter pecan?). The finish is drier, some bitterness, and like weak coffee again. There is just enough bitterness to balance this beer and stay slightly hidden. Medium body. I was quite pleased with this beer and really enjoyed it. This is a solid Nut Brown Ale. 6 oz draught, $1.50 at McQuiston’s Malthouse.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2006
Pours with no head, body is a dark ruddy red-brown, some cloudiness. Aroma is buttery, nutty, sweet, almost too much. Taste is bitter, slight oxidation. Sweet, nutty, very mineralized. Finish brings out nuttiness. Body is pretty watered down.

Nuffield (3810) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2006
Dark brown, clear, with a lingering dark cream head. While cold it has a smokiness, fading with warmth to a more vanilla, milky coffee. A little thin, with some lingering notes of cigarette ashes. Drinkable but not memorable. Thanks Kevin!

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - AUG 22, 2006
Bottle, very slight gusher. A tad on the dark side for a brown ale with a nice dense 1/4 inch head. Nose-roasty and sour milk. Tatse-slightly lactic and sour, woody, peanut shells, obligatory chocolate, roasty, medium malts. A decent interpretation of a dull and bland style.

kramer (5357) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2006
12 oz bottle, via Kevin. Pours a clear dark amber under a one finger light brown foamy head that faded to a thin film. Aroma is very nutty with a light hoppiness. A little chocolate malt as well. The flavor is a little grainy but quite nutty and full flavored. The finish is lightly bitter with some chocolate. Mouthfeel is thinnish with fizzy forced carbonation. Texture is trying to be creamy but the carbonation interferes. Overall, this was maybe a little better than average for a Brown Ale, but still nothing exciting.

bottle - This is a basic, decent brown ale. It smells of roasted malts. It tastes like roasted malts with some nuttiness. There’s a mildly dry finish and not much hops presence. It’s uncomplicated and not bad.

Terminus (3342) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - AUG 13, 2006
bottle-im just going to say this. thanks to kevin for this brown ale. Its a pretty basic brown with a nice nose of light hops and peanuts-honey roasted. flavors are standard brown ale. a pretty basic brown that was nothing speical but nothing offensive as well.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2006
12oz bottle pours brown with ruby highlights and a short offwhite creamy head that laces some. Aromas of nuts and caramel, along with some earthy notes. Flavor is probably the nuttiest nutbrown ever. I get roasted peanuts, caramel, a little toffee, but really a lot of roasted nuts. Medium bodied, average carbonation, and a malty smooth finish. Good solid robust flavor in this one. Not bad at all.

Hazy brown color with a big tan head. Aroma is very malty with nuts. Really smooth. Flavor of malt, nuts and a little toffee/chocolate.
