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.

I enjoy this nut brown. The beer is very flavorful and bold. It is easy to drink, but comes off as fresh and alive.

This is a pretty nice looking beer w/ its slightly cloudy brown color and small head of evenly sized bubbles. The nose is mildly roast w/ some caramel and fruity apple notes. The flavor is mild and drinkable, just a touch of darker malts and roast, medium dry w/ brisk carbonation. It is decently balanced though I feel it would benefit if the carbonation was toned down a hair. Decent enough brew but it is neither perfectly executed nor particularly flavorful so I’d say it’s just a bit above average for the style.

Dark brown color with some ruby and dark orange highlights around the edges. Minimal head with an aggressive pour. Not much lacing left on the glass either. The head was of an off white, cream color. In the smell, I was picking up a decent amount of roasted malt, walnut, and hazelnut. Dry, leafy hints in the nose also. Breadiness. Doughy with notes of caramel on a subtle level. With the taste, I was again picking up the roasted, smokey, "nut" flavored malt. Touches of black coffee come through at the end and stick to the back of the throat. Not overpowering, but lasts long enough until the next sip. Medium mouthfeel that leans ever so slightly to the light/thin side. As I said, coats the throat somewhat, but doesn’t linger as long as one would expect. Somewhat crisp. Not as dry as I was anticipating. This is a decent little brown ale. Not the best, but definitely worth a try, in my opinion. Solid. I wouldn’t have a problem drinking a few of these. It seems that every Bluegrass Brewing Co. beer I have had lacks a bit with head and head retention however.

Bottle. Reddish-amber color, pale head, leaves a hint of lacing. On first pour, aroma has a strong vanilla-chocolate scent, which gives way to a predominantly roasted-nut malt scent once the beer warms up slightly. Flavor has the same vanilla background, over a roast-nut malt. Tiniest hints of hop floral and light coffee. Smooth and very little bitterness.

Reddish brown color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, nuts, some pine, and floral hops. Taste of caramel malts, some roast, nuts, and toast.

ContemplateBeer (1755) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 29, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2014 Aroma: Lean chocolate malts, power of suggestion nuttiness, maybe a bit of spiced bread. Appearance: Filtered dark amber brown pour with a tan head that settles into a skin. Flavor: Lean chocolate malts up front and throughout, with more impressions of spiced bread toward the finish. However, the finish lacks any sort of bitterness and is a bit watery. Palate: Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A simple brown ale that you could drink for hours; however, it’s simplicity keeps it from the heights of the best of the style.

kbutler1 (1377) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2010 Bottle. Pours a reddish brown mahogany color with a nice big tan fluffy head that is slow to go down. Looks pretty good actually. Malted milk chocolate is the first thing that comes to mind when I smell this beer and maybe some nut like hazelnut, actually it smells a lot like Nutella! Weird. Medium mouthfeel. Roasted malt taste with a touch of smokiness. No real hop bitterness to speak of. Subtle sweetness and pretty smooth. Very light taste of light roast coffee as well.

My first ever live rating! Brown, decent beige head. Really nice aroma - roasted walnut, tobacco, some caramel, too. Clean and crisp. Notes of toast and caramel, dry finish. Tasty for the style.

Draft pint at Bearden Beer Market. See-through brown with a lasting little ring. Nose is light cocoa and toasted walnut. Flavor is the same, with a hint of woody hops. Medium body is just a little dry from the roast, and slightly watery.
