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.)

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.

Chudwick (2499) - 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.

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.

JMerritt (1898) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 30, 2011
Bottled, as a part of a fall sampler pack. Moderately dark brown in color with a slight orange tint. Large, light-tan head is mostly lasting. Moderately malty nose with lightly toasty hazelnut with some slightly sour bready/yeastiness. Flavor is very mildly sweet, mildly-to-moderately sour and heavy on wheat bread and some copper metallics. Stale bread finish is slightly sour and mildly bitter. As an aside, we used a bottle of this to make Beer-Pretzel Caramels (from Food Network magazine, Google it) that turned out very tasty.

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.

EtTuCthulhu (1385) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - FEB 4, 2013
This beer is an auburn color with a prominent white head, and the aroma is nutty with a hint of caramel alongside the yeast undertones. The taste is mildly umami and mildly sweet, and the palate of the beer combines a light-medium body, a thin texture, soft carbonation, and an abrupt finish.

BucannonXC5 (1131) - 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.
