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.

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. Pours brown with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet and nutty. Flavor is slightly sweet and nutty, very malty. Pretty good, and might I add better than Kentucky Ale.

Brewsmith (148) - Torrance, California, USA - JAN 10, 2009
From a 12 oz. bottle sent to me from a friend in TN. Aroma is sweet malty toast and a little floral hop. Color is a burnt brick red with a tiny off-white head. Flavor is very toasty with some slight chocolate/coffee roastyness and a lemony hop flavor. Finishes dry and clean, does not hang around much. A decent brown.

toffsbury (114) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2012
Dark red brown, with a persistent low head. Aroma is sweet and malty with a hint of dark roastiness. Flavor is lovely... Dark roasted barley over biscuit and mild sweetness. Medium body with fair complexity. I would drink this again.

Malty and true to the style. Sweet, brown, and tasty. Caramel and toffee with no noticeable hops or bitterness.

Very average English brown ale. Nothing spectacular, but nothing off-putting. Great if you are in the mood for this sort of thing, but it didn’t knock my socks off.

Sweet roasted malt and an overall nutty flavor. Aroma is full caramel malt. Rich taste. Carbonation is medium. Medium bodied. A solid beer, but it seemed slightly overpriced for what it is.

Dark Brown with a good head. Not much aroma. Weak flavor and lacks hops in the finish. Undewhelming.

Nutty, almost hazelnut, with Caramel aroma, with nuts, chocolate, and a bit of floral hops. Very dark brown pour with a small tan head. Kinda sweet, with chocolate and nut. Pretty tasty brew.
