COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beautiful deep brown hue and a nutty sweetness identify this style of ale from Northern England. Although malt and caramel flavor dominate, hops provide a medium level of bitterness at the finish.

On draught at Downtown Grille, Knoxville on 8 July 2006 (as Woodruff Nut Brown Ale). Quite light coppery colour. Subtle soft malty notes with a hint of smoke. Not too much caramel (good for me). Just a hint of nuts. Easygoing and easy-drinking. Pleasant if undemanding.

Draft sample at the 13th Annual Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Soda brown pour with a yellowish head that settles to a ring. Subdue malt aroma. The flavor found caramel and nut. Light body and a nutty malt aftertaste.
