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.

(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.

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.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2004 Rerate 04/01/2004: Tried a glass of this at the BBC in the Cincinnati airport. This was a lot better than the last time I tried it. This was their current seasonal selection. Clear dark brown with a medium thick beige head. Thin lacing. The aroma is very nutty, along with a touch of malt. Nicely smooth with a roasty and nutty character. Malt and hops are also present in the flavor. The finish is crisp and nutty. Overall my experience with the beer this time around was much more favorable.

11/12/2002 (3.0): Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. This was just called "Nut Brown Ale", so maybe they brew it every year on their anniversary. Dark brown with a thin head. For some reason I got impressions of bubblegum in the flavor along with the malt. It also had a slightly sour finish. This was an odd beer.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2006 Revisited May 24th, 2006 at BW2’s, Louisville, KY. A nice malty brown ale. Not very nutty like, say, a Sam Smith. Maybe it should just be called a brown ale. On tap at Clifton’s Pizza in Louisville.

I had a brown ale from this brewery at their pub in the Cincinnati airport on May 21, so I think the seasonal thing is inaccurate, or maybe the airport had a keg left over. Anyway, this is a nice dark brown ale, malty but with a good solid bitterness in the aftertaste. Head retention is nice.
