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.)

Pours a dark brown color. Smell is a bit malty. Taste is malts, some nuts, a touch of hops. Overall a pretty good beer.

njbfr (113) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Pours a very nice red with a thick, frothy, almost white head. Aroma is almost non-existent. Nice lacing. Taste is boring. Almost no discernible flavors at all. Finish is almost astringent. Disappointing.

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

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.

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.

Dundee Nut Brown Ale from the Dundee Brewing Co. in Rochester NY. This is a pretty standard Brown Ale. Not too cloying or over malted. That is to say that while there are dark malts for the style, they don’t compete as the top flavor. The chocolate malt stays in the background. There doesn’t seem to be any black patent in the bill. Not at all hoppy. The palate is very smooth, making this a nice session brew, even at 5.3% abv. The label claims it has natural hazelnut flavors, but not that I detected.

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

12oz bottle, from my local Kroger. Clear brown / red color. pours with a 1-finger off-white head. Kinda bubbly, but leaves good spray of lace. Stronger, pronounced carbonation, though smooth overall. No stickiness in the finish. Sweet taste overall, light bitter in the finish. Nutty, toasty flavor. Caramel malts, little chocolate. Very faint hops. Mostly just kind of a plain, watered down, lightly dusty flavor... Not a terrible brown ale, but not really interesting.
