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.

hombrepalo (1823) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2013
Sampler at BBC Downtown. Nut Brown, really?Pours a clear amber with minima head. Aroma is up front with hints of malt and a little caramel but no nuts. The taste carries this malt through, but lacks the backbone of the nuttiness.

Draft to taster at BBC. Looks solid; a transparent copper with iff-white lacing. Smells and tastes malty and nutty with hints of caramel and an average mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

17thfloor (2430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Pretty good brown ale. Like the roundness and nuttiness, delicate mix of caramel, faint roast and chocolate, the stronger than expected hops are nice to but certainly don’t seem to age that well. quite well balanced otherwise. thinner with nice carbonation and very drinkable.

queenholly (2890) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Bottle. Sour vinegar aroma. Hazy chestnut with a gargantuan tan head... as in 4/5th of the glass large head.. as in I had to wait 10 minutes to taste the damn thing large head. Only to discover I had an infected bottle and will have to revisit this one at a later date. Sour lactic flavor, unpleasant.
