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.)

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.

Froma bottle much better than expected. A brown beer with a clean smell. Easy going. Fairly mild and well behaved, unlike other dundees I’m familiar with. Some rope and leather in there but not over the top. Goodly amount of co2. Overall a decent beer experience, btter than expected for this brand.

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.

Bottle. One of the bottles from their Seasonal variety pack (though I don’t believe this one in particular is seasonal for them, but couldn’t say for sure). Has a nutty, caramel aroma - not too strong. Taste is similar with some chocolate in there as well. Slightly hoppy finish. Pretty mellow taste, definitely a decent beer. Dundee always has solid beers for a low price, gotta respect em for that! 5.3% alcohol.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear super dark amber with a medium tan head. Nose of toffee, malt, some hops. Decent mouthfeel, flavors of brown sugar and hops. Overall, not too bad.

Aurelius (4178) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Sweet, light roasted nut aroma. Clear, medium brown. Tipsy squirrel buddy on the label. Fairly bitter, lightly sweet, medium roast. Slightly heavy mouthfeel. Better than some of Dundee’s style interpretations, still there’s not much to commend this as a craft brew. Goes a little sweet at the end as it warms. ABC Liquors, Betton, part of a mix pack.

nakedwhendrunk (2145) - 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.
