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.

17thfloor (2436) - 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.

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.
