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.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - DEC 18, 2004
cask conditioned: Mahogany in color. Fat, light hazel foam. Prevalent leathery house character in the aroma with notes of toffee, plummy malt, rye, and bushy hops. Hints of roast. Fluffy carbonation. Tea-like softness. Complexly flavored with tangy leather and stewed plum notes. Continually soft and fruity with coconut and mango suggestions. Scratchy yeast and grainy malt textures buoy the earthy hop astringency with hints of fruitcake and acidity. Juicy malt structure hints at toasted, lightly husky malt. Pulverized malt notes are enlivened by gentle tropical fruit acidity and rich caramel. Understatedly nutty malt finish underlined with a delicate sweep of coarse hops. Needs more malt emphasis in both aroma and flavor. Excellent session brew, though.

[The bartender called this "nut brown", so Iím not sure if this rating is in the right place.] Red-brown with a thick, long lasting head. Nutty, worty caramel aroma. A bit sour with a thin body and a thin flavour. I would not have this beer again.

Shag (2637) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 24, 2004
Like everyone else, on draft at the Cincy airport. A brown appearance with a light head. Some hazelnut and toffee characteristics. A very carbonated mouthfeel. Overall impression of Bluegrass so far is an average brewery.

PorterPounder (5699) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Had on tap at their brewpub in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport. Medium copper appearance, thick off-white head with good lacing. Aroma has a bit of a caramel sweetness to it with some fresh lake water undertones. Some nutty sweetness in the flavor with some caramel uindertones. MOuthfeel is decently thick. Overall, not a bad Brown Ale.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2004
Dark amber-red. Smells brown, nutty and peaty, some caramel. Same in flavor, a bit of woodiness to it. Sticky palate, hung around the mouth nicely.

burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2004
The aroma was nutty and VERY pleasant. The light brown body supported a thick, tan head. The flavor was an exciting cacophany of nutty goodness.

boto (1891) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 17, 2004
Draught: I had this at a satellite location in the Cincinnati Airport. The beer poured a dark amber (but not quite brown) color with little head. It had a nutty, sweet aroma. There was also a hint of roastiness in there. A sweet and nutty taste, with a bit of a dry aftertaste. Some roasty notes to the taste also.
