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.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 3, 2007
Pours brown with a thin head. Aroma is malty and slightly nutty. Slightly thin bodied but malty and sweet. Very good and very reasonably priced as well.

Aurelius (4178) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2007
A sturdy offering. Cereal, musty, roast aroma. Fair label, watery cola color - clear and dark. Cocoa, cereal, lightly nut sweet. Finishes out with some astringency and green nuts. A little bit of work would make this a frontline brew.

T2Tool (352) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - MAY 21, 2007
One of my favorite Nut Browns. Pours brown in color with a tint of red. Has a nice tan head. Has a nutty, roasted smell and also can detect seom caramel malts. In tasting, also felt a faint taste of chocolate to go with the nut and caramel.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Bottle from Squire’s. Hazy deep brown pour with ruby edges and nose of caramel malt, hops, brown sugar, almonds, and red wine grapes. Tastes malty, with brown sugar, fig, and a nut medley including almond, cashew, and walnut. Smooth and enjoyable.

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 28, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2011 Rated a bad bottle originally, so Iím not inclined to mention that score. This time re-rated at Beer Run on draft. Pours a hazy brown color with a medium sized creamy head. Good head retention. Aroma of nuts, caramel and faint stone fruits. The taste is chocolate, caramel, citrus, hops and light toastiness. Medium bodied. Score almost double. Wow that bottle was bad.

beerbill (3415) - Laurel, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2009
12 oz. bottle that I received as a gift from my friend Russell. Pours a hazy brown with a thin-moderate off-white head that faded to a film after the first two sips and left scant lace. Very pleasant aroma of hazelnuts and chocolate. Very nice. The flavor steps back a bit from the aroma and is not as rich. There is a solid dose of English malt up front along with some mild hazelnut and just a bit of coffee. Overall, this is a pretty solid English style brown ale.

kbutler1 (1351) - Minnesota, 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.

egajdzis (5336) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2010
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.
