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.

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 (1922) - 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.

(Draught) Pours a medium brwon with amber highlights and a small head. Does not have much of a nutty flavor, but does have some bite to it.

Not too much aroma. Good nutty flavor carries throughout. The more you drink the more of a bite comes through.

Libeerian (209) - Garner, North Carolina, USA - MAR 12, 2003
Listed only as Nut Brown Ale, the color was deep ruby but the flavor gave only the barest hint of nuttiness. Perhaps a bit more Victory malt is called for. OK but nothing great.

Good, but fairly standard. Warm nut tones with a slight sweetness.
