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.

jhp40219 (319) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 11, 2010
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.

Bottle 355 ml
Appearance: Rustic amber with reddish hue , light top.
Nose :Medium depth , brown malts , sweet-earthy side, light coco hints at end.6+
Flavor/Palate : Fairly soft bodied almost creamy in texture. Slightly acidic , woody earthy foliage feel. Nutty with autumn foliage. Unconvincing attempt.

Pipper (325) - Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2009
On tap at The Beer Engine Lakewood, OH. Pours a medium ruby red, almost no head and weak lace. Slightly watered down raspberry/tangerine taste with a thin mouth feel. Not an outstanding nut brown but it’ll do.

Odde (308) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2010
sticky, bitter and a little thick. the hops don’t bode well with the rest of what’s going on. uninspiring.

Concealer (838) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Copper brown pour with a little white head. Good toasted malt nose. Taste is sweet toasted malt with a semi bitter finish.

bartlebier (1977) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 18, 2014
(backlog recollected in abstinence) Tap tasting flight, @source downtown pub 09/2012. Tasted like a maltier UK bitter with nutty accompaniment and a watery finish. Thin palates and ethereal yeast profiles are the scourge of many sportsbar/brewpub brews: often the taste is gone before it arrives.

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.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - FEB 10, 2005
Draft - little to no aroma. Dark brown body with a medium-sized head of large beige bubbles that quickly turned into just a ring around the glass. Malty with a touch of finishing nuttiness. Not terrible, but not great.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 8, 2005
On tap at the brewpub. Brown reddish amber with a good-sized head. Sweet tasting. More roasted than toasted. Nutty and meaty (?) scent. Not real interesting.

ContemplateBeer (1581) - 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.
