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.)

Cybercat (3497) - Georgia, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Comes out of the bottle a clear, bubbly chestnut with a fairly thick and fluffy pale wheat head. Malty aroma is not strong but has nice caramel and nutty hints. Satisfying, if not outstanding, flavor has a malty core and hints of hazelnut (no surprise) and caramel. Texture is about average in the fizz and fullness departments. If no great shakes, still tasty and enjoyable.

Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is malty and a little bit of roasted nuts. Flavor is the same starts out with some malts then comes a bit of roasted nuts. Like most of this brewers beers its kinda watery but cheap.

Gorbalev (2950) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2012
Bottle, Dundee mixed pack, thanks inlaws! Mild sweet malt aroma. Golden brown appearance,, small bubbly white head. Nice foamy mouthfeel. Taste is - odd. Watery up front, nutty malt taste in middle, odd sweetness in finish. Slight hops as well. Drinkable, but bland.

jmagnus87 (2732) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2012
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark brown with about 2 fingers of rapidly diminishing white head. Not much there by way of aroma, a little caramel and maybe just a slight hint of pine. Taste is light sweet. Caramel with a little bit of hazelnut...maybe. Light bodied with a thin texture. Soft carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, it’s ok. As with most Dundee products, it’s a good intro to craft but nothing I would seek out.

Pour is a dark brown and translucent with a large tan head. Aroma is malty with some roasted nuts. Flavor is the same. Starts out with some malts then comes a bit of roasted nuts. The body is a little thin, but it goes down easy and tastes decent.

An attractive orange brown fall color with thick head. Rocky thick head. Yeah it has a nutty smell and taste, with a bit of spice and the general lack of complexity that characterizes this style.

Bulk_Carrier (2249) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JAN 28, 2013
The appearance had a medium dark brown body with a somewhat off-white frothy head with some slight lacing that slides down the glass as it goes. The smell has a sweet nutty malt with some caramel, subdued in a weird sort. The taste has a slight coffee bitterness followed by some light maltiness. The palate is light and has a fair amount of carbonation in the body. Overall, this is just a decent beer that I would have again, but would rather have it on tap if offered.

puboflyons (2222) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 19, 2011
It pours dark amber with excellent clarity and a small but lingering head. The aroma is average to above average with malts, nuts, and sugar. The body falls in the thin to medium range. The taste is also average to above average for the Nut Brown style with a slightly more presumptuous bitter bite on the tail end. Not a bad beer on the whole.

Chudwick (2209) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - MAR 5, 2012
12oz bottle - pours clear brown with off-white head and nice lacing. Nose is caramel. Flavor is a tiny bit nutty and adds floral hops. taste is a little sweet and a bit more bitter. Body is medium and texture is watery.to thin. Medium finish that is almost dry. Again, good in flavor, but modest for the style.
