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.

hopscotch (10642) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2004
Very handsome, crystal clear, copper ale. Large, very thick, creamy white head. Excellent, creamy, very full lacework. Leaves behind the same lacing that heavy cream leaves on the side of a dairy bottle. Sort of thin, but the aroma and flavor have some nice, faint notes of caramel and toasted nuts. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, lightly bitter, very dry finish.

muzzlehatch (4829) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 2, 2005
Sample at the JH in Harvard Square, Cambridge. Near-opaque dark walnut with beautiful lace promises much more than it delivers in the nutty, ashy cigarette-laden harsh but vaguely interesting nose, or the extremely boring, lightly malted, grapy body...thereís little more to say.
