COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
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.

Sigmund (5044) - 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.

tiggmtl (4548) - 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).

johndoughty (3960) - 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 (3598) - 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.
