Our CHOICE OLD WALNUT BROWN uses Brown, Amber and our traditionally made floor malts in this flavoursome ale. At 6% it reflects the strength of ales being produced at the turn of the 19th Century. Using the traditional malts of our time, our ale has the distinct nutty palate, and walnut coloured hue, of this flavoursome historical style.

JonMoore (2060) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2005
Bottle conditioned. Clear dark brown with a sparse off-white head. Aroma is chocolate malts. Taste is the same with caramel and some fruit. The texture spoils it for me though, flat and watery.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2005
Nutty, earthy, floral and lightly roasty aroma. Clear mahogany brown with amber highlights is topped by very shy, large bubbled tan head that recedes rapidly to the slightest ring. Chocolate maltiness and orange blossom hops with fairly roasty dark malt bitterness. Medium body with low carbonation and somewhat watery texture. Seems like this could have been a very nice beer if the bottle-conditioning had worked. Bottle (BB 0306, Tuckerís Maltings).

Ungstrup (33459) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2005
A hazy brown beer with a thin light brown head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of caramel, but also some notes of hops. The flavor is very light - a little like a Newcastle Brown, but still with a better body which makes for a far better beer. The flavor is malty and roasted with notes of caramel and nuts.

Sigmund (6289) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2005
500 ml, bottle conditioned. Dark brown colour, no head, minimal carbonation. Delightful, intense and complex aroma with strong fruity and roasty notes - plums, prunes, coffee, chocolate, leather. Also hints of oak and spices. Nutty and roasty flavour with a pronounced bitterness from the roastiness and the hops. Hoppy bitter finish / aftertaste. Interesting beer, even historically.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2005
Bottle. Brown colour with a off-white head. Light nutty hoppy aroma and a taste. Medium body and a light dry finish.

omhper (22763) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2005
Bottled at RBESG. Nut brown. Sweet and roasty with medium body. The mouthfeel is clean and rounded, it has notes of coffee and some vinuos character. Somewhat syrupy finish.

johndoughty (4772) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2005
Pours totally flat with a dry nutty taste.A good example of a very traditional British style.Very easy to drink and easy to forget its strength.Long may we continue to be given the chance to taste a decent brown ale like this.

rauchbier (3754) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2004
Bottle conditioned, from Tuckers Maltings courtesy of John White. Deep chestnut red with thin off white head and gentle fine condition. Gentle buttery caramel, milky coffee and gentle hops in the nose, initial roasted barley in the mouth with a building coffee and chocolate sweetness towards the end. Finish has a nice prickle of roasted bitterness with some nuttiness, a pleasant fruity sweetness and some chalky hop notes right at the end.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2004
Bottle Conditioned. A dark brown coloured beer with a short-lived off white, almost creamy in appearance, head. The aroma is nutty and chocolatey and also features raisins and rum. The taste is of dark chocolate, wood, burnt tea loaf and nuts. It is very rich and tasty but maybe a little too complicated?
