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.)

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a medium beige head. Aroma is malty and roasty. Flavor is the same but with a hint of nuttiness. As usual for Dundee, watery but cheap and decent.

Alright, I purchased this one as part of the Dundee Summer Sampler box at the Ferguson Road Kroger - Alright, I emptied my twelve ounce bottle into a clean, clear glass and was impressed by its malty/bready aroma and dark trandparent hue. Tastewise, this one has roasted nalt, caramelike flavor, but is a bit watery on its finish. Still, it would be a fine everyday beer for those who like the nut brown style.

BucannonXC5 (743) - 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.

TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 28, 2011
Pours a dark amber with a slowly diminishing head. Aroma dominated by malts as expected. Very smooth and flavorful. The hazelnut really comes through in the flavor. A nice fall ale.

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

smaynard6000 (550) - Apopka, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Pours a deep brown with a thick beige head. Fizzy. Aroma is similar to other brown ales, bit of caramel malt and a touch of hops. Light bodied and smooth. A bit of hazelnut. Not bad, but not much here to recommend.

Mildly intriguing aroma and a thin brown pour leads to a mild taste and basic mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured into one of my Newcastle Geordie Schooner glasses. Mahogany brown color with a generoud tan head. Aroma is hazelnut and some earthy malt. Flavor is a bit one dimensional, but nutty with a nice level of hazelnut character. Many hazelnut browns seem to overwhelm with the hazelnut flavor, but this strikes a nice balance. Fairly smooth mouthfeel with a slightly dry finish. I rarely see any Dundee beer in my area, so I probably won’t be drinking it again, but its a decent run-of-the-mill brown.

redpooba (396) - New York, USA - MAR 12, 2013
A brown ale with an off white head. The beer tastes like a brazilian nut coffee with just a hint of hazelnut perhaps in the background. Finishes clean

sudomorph (375) - 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.
