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.)

chinchill (1367) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 2, 2013
12 oz bottle in a pint glass. Very clear brown. Starts with a decent tan head, but this retreats rapidly, leaving little more than a ring but good lacing on the glass. Mouthfeel: well-chosen carbonation. Medium-thin body. Beyond crisp, this one is a bit harsh and acidic feeling. Nice, unusually dry (for style and ABV) finish. Aroma: mild: toasted malt; nutty and lightly spicy. Taste: a tad light for style; no serious flaws; nice dry nutty finish, perhaps reflecting the "natural hazelnut flavors". O - Not a typical brown ale, but overall an average quality brown ale. Very good value as part of Dundee ’craftpack’.

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.

Dundee Nut Brown Ale is a very clear, very sparkling brown ale with a dense, waxy, off white head that has great retention and lacing. It smells nutty, malty, a little sweet and metallic. It’s light bodied and quite lively. The finish is pretty clean. The flavor is pretty well balanced. It’s nutty with an herbal bitterness. There are notes of chocolate, metal and something Irish. It’s really easy drinking. The metal flavor is a little distracting, but there’s enough flavor to keep some interest. I could go through a few of these.

Tasty brew from a Dundee sampler pack. Pours dark brown with a nice head. Flavor is slightly sweet with a hint hazelnut. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Perfectly brown appearance, nice tan head. Decent nutty taste. Low IBUs. Pretty average nut brown ale.

hockeybeerguy (909) - 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.

EtTuCthulhu (897) - 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.

ccex (891) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle from sampler pack pours a clear light brown with small white head and some lacing. Smells like caramel malts and hazelnut. Aroma is the same. Body is a little thin for my tastes. Pleasant nutty finsh. OK, but it’s a stretch to call this craft beer.

12 ounce bottle. not a super strong taste but pleasant malty taste. Solid cheaper beer. Would drink again
