The traditional English fermentation process is alive and well with our limited release Nut Brown Ale. In it, we paired the strength of North England's brown ales with the darker hue of their southern counterparts. Our Nut Brown Ale's nutty aroma and dark walnut colour with relax even the stiffest upper lips, allowing them to enjoy it with rich males, aged cheeses and BC's very own smoked salmon.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Not sure of the age on this one, as it was in the back of the fridge at the lake (I donít recall bringing it). Medium brown, amber highlights, off white head. Bready caramel, light chocolate, light hazelnut, boxboard note in the finish. Not bad actually.

Dark clear brown-ruby color, steady small beige head. Nutty caramelly aroma. Medium-bodied. Caramelly, nutty flavor. Light minty hoppyness in the aftertaste, sweetish. Quite close to English ESBs.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2011
Pours a lovely medium brown with solid, lasting head. Aroma is what you would expect; roasted nutty caramel malt. Taste is fairly full which is great since so many nut browns end up watery. Finish is pleasing. Itís great for the style without pushing any boundaries.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2010
Pours a deep mahogany-copper with a modest head. Sweet malt aroma. Decent brown ale flavour with characteristic Granville Island residual sweetness. Thin body, ok carb. Quaffable.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 29, 2010
(650ml bottle) Purchased at the BCLS on Fort Street in Victoria, BC. I immediately got a maple-nut aroma from this beer. It was fairly strong when first out of the fridge, its since morphed to a toasted caramel malt but I still have glimpses of Draught Dodger in the back of my mind - only this is bolder and more full. The 5% ABV is somewhat surprising as it really tastes as though there is a higher alcohol level. This is really good. Iíd love to have this around year-round. Good stuff!

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2010
Poured a cola-like body beneath a rocky, offwhite head. Aroma was just "okay", and the taste was quite malty, not so great at first but improving towards the end. Decent mouth, with a slightly tart finish.
