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.

sticky, bitter and a little thick. the hops don’t bode well with the rest of what’s going on. uninspiring.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2013 Pours a soda brown with a amber hue. Very little head even with an aggressive pour, and head completely disappeared within moments leaving no lacing whatsoever. Faint aroma of roasty hazelnut, malt, caramel and toffee. Very nice, but far too faint. Taste is very nutty up front. Not just hazelnut either, but a nice combo of several different nuts. Roasty malts, caramel and toffee come through very well, especially in the aftertaste. Palate is thin with a watery texture. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Overall a decent beer, but the palate and faint aroma really hurt it.

lumpsowers (287) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 12, 2009
Dark copper pour, low head, some lacing. Sour grainy aroma. Low carb, woody caramel flavor, with a sickingly sweet taste. Some phlegmy in the throat. A bit of nut, and a low sour artificial flavor, somewhat unpleasant, but doesn’t destroy the beer. Decent.

Stellaaaa (250) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Pours a rich copper with a thick white head. It has a fruity, slightly malty aroma. The taste is of grape nuts/wheat berries and a slightly sweet maltiness. The mouthfeel is pretty watery, which is a little detracting.

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Pours a clear amber color with minimal head. Aroma is very malty with notes of caramel and yeast. Flavor is an initial clean matly bitterness with a minimal flavor finish. Mouthfeel is average carbonation is good. Overall a decent beer.

Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 27, 2007
Bottle. Poured a clear brown color with a small light-brown head. Slight lacing. Malty aroma. Slightly fizzy mouthfeel. Flavor is very nutty with a malty coffee aftertaste. A good beer.

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.

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

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.
