COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally brewed using the Yorkshire square system of fermentation, the nut brown ale calls the North of England home. A hint of hazelnut, a dash of rich caramel and a sprinkle of chocolate malt all intertwine with the flowery bouquet of Willamette hops to produce a round-bodied ale worthy of its homeland. Take a leaf out of our buddy Cyril the red squirrel’s book, and enjoy a Dundee Nut Brown Ale in your own drey. (Drey = a squirrel’s nest. See, you learned something too.)

GTAEgeek (1235) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 28, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Nice brown color with a medium, tan, rocky head and lots of lacing. Big peanut and caramel notes, with some light chocolate and chili notes. Nice savory and sweet flavors, with very light bitterness. Light to medium body, syrupy, and slick. Overall, this is a simple, but tasty beer.

"i proved i was a sucker for this type of beer with the Leinenkugel Fireside Nut brown, but this one didn’t quite do it for me. Not bad. The carmel nutty sweetness was pleasant enough, but the beer was juuuust a bit on the thin and boring side with not a lot else going on."

Transfer from BA review on 5-18-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a medium clear brown color with a billowing off white head with big carbonation bubbles entrapped within.. The head has good retention and eventually fades to leave a light level of lacing. Smell – The smell is of brown bread, caramel and hazelnut; sweet roasted nut describes it best. Taste – The taste is rather surprising. While I was expecting something of sweeter malt up front it was rather dry. A dry roasty biscuit flavor meets the tongue. While caramel is big in the nose it is not heavily present in the taste at all. The initial roasty biscuit flavors are meet with a roasted nut flavor more toward the middle of the taste. This mix of flavors lasts to the end of the taste where a little bitterness sits and lingers on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body and carbonation are both very average. A thicker body would have suited the flavors better, but the lighter body makes it go down very easily. Overall average. Overall – Not bad, but it lacks some of the caramel sweetness and thicker body that would likely have accentuated the taste of the beer. All in all it has a good roasty nuttiness, but is a little too bitter.

hotstuff (4096) - Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2014
Rated on 10-17-2011 (Bottle) This beer’s appearance is a medium sized smooth, fizzy ivory head with short retention, copper transparent body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, nutty, light chocolate, and a suggestion of hops. The flavor is malt, chocolate and nutty. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light bodied. This beer has a weak and boring flavor. It lacks character and is a beer that is not on my want to drink again list.

njbfr (113) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Pours a very nice red with a thick, frothy, almost white head. Aroma is almost non-existent. Nice lacing. Taste is boring. Almost no discernible flavors at all. Finish is almost astringent. Disappointing.

Dark brown color, off white head. Malt, toast, earth, chocolate, metallic aroma. Flavor is the same. The metallic seems to stand out in an unpleasant way

BucannonXC5 (857) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Firestone pint glass From: BevMo in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif. Price: $14.99 for a BevMo variety 8-pack (w/ BevMo card) Purchased: Dec. 31, 2013 Consumed: Jan. 4, 2014 Misc.: N/A Poured a reddish amber clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of khaki white head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Lots of uneven foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Very good retention on the top. Smelled a pleasant whiff of caramel, toffee, roasted nuts, hazelnut, espresso, light chocolate and some honey. Not a lot, but very good. Tasted pretty close to the nose, but not quite as good. Got roasted bitter nuts, hazelnut, espresso, caramel, toffee, honey and some metallic notes. Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. This beer had its moments for sure. A couple of my ratings could have changed a tick or two either way, but the finish wasn’t matched by the start.

sudomorph (617) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2013
355ml bottle. Pours a clear, brown with a one finger, off-white head that thins to a film but leaves a layer of lacing. Aroma has notes of bread and caramel mixed with a touch of fruit and a hint of chocolate and spice. Taste is malty but balanced. Hints of caramel and bread balanced with bitter with a short finish. Medium body and carbonation. Fairly crisp in the mouth with a smooth, easy drinking finish. Overall this is an easy drinking and enjoy beer. Enough flavour for most without being offputting to the non-beergeek out there. I would drink this again but probably wouldn’t search it out. Just too many other things to try.
