COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This type of ale is called nut brown because of the roasted, nutty flavor from dark malt. Our Nut Brown is deep amber and malty with mild hop character.

Framingham, MA - Has a dark brown color and a roasted malt smell. Taste is roasted with the nut flavor coming out as the beer got warmer and it finished moderately bitter. Overall I am not a fans of this style, but it was pretty good.

I had the pleasure of having this brew on the hand pump & cask conditioned, the head was very soft & lacy & followed the beer down the entire glass, faint nutty aromas, very little flavors in the front of the beer, but once the back of the flavors kicked in then you knew it was a nut brown, very distinctive aftertaste which was very nutty, very well balanced, overall a great brown ale

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2004 On Tap 7/6/02 Cambridge, MA: A similar, but not as good the cask version. On cask NERAX '02: Huge molasses, toffee aroma. Cloudy dark orang color, ends very sweet. Great hops taste throughout. If this wasn't so sweet, it would have been the best beer I tried at NERAX.

Gregory (357) - Pullman, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2002
CASK- Fairly bland brown ale I thought. The chocolate, and the caramel is tasted. A nice full aroma with scents of cofee. The palate I find to be too light. Not bad, could be better.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2003 Springfield, PA. Low body and little flavor. Darker brown than most other nut brown ales.
