COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
his reddish brown ale is known for its nutty sweetness and enticing aroma. Similar to New Castle Brown Ale, our Brown is patterned from the Northern New England brown ales and has a slightly lower alcohol content (approximately ABV: 4.8%) than our other brews. Our Nut Brown Ale received the bronze medal in the English-Style Brown Ale category at 2004 The Great American Beer Festival.

Pours a copper, with minimal tan head. Aroma is nutty, caramel and some earthyness. Taste is dull, right on the cusp of being sweet but doesn’t. Medium mouthfeel. Overall its decent and drinkable.

Draught at the pub. Orange-amber body with a short white head. Light yeasty funk, perhaps some sweat from the hops. Watery body, bitter, I’d say this were the same beer as the amber if not for the slight uptick in fruitiness. Or the Nut Brown was poured into the Amber glass and they hoped I wouldn’t notice.

a lighter brown pour without much head... a decent attempt at a brown ale but nothing great, a watered down version of a Newcastle Brown Ale, but not even close to the same flavor or quality

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2007
Clear, rather pale amber – surprisingly. The small white cover leaves a lasting ring. Highly toasty, almost Vienna-like malts with white almond notes showing through as leafy hops come and cut through the rather high sweetness level. Brief finish, refreshing carbonation, but slightly sloppy texture.

Clear copper body with beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, nut. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, nut, light chocolate. Low carbonation, light-medium body.

TomDecapolis (4396) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - AUG 6, 2007
On tap at the brew pub. Pours a translucent amber with golden highlights…not brown and it had small bubbly lightly off white head. Aroma of light nuts, some toasted malts, caramel and citrus. Aroma on the light side. Flavor of lightly toasted malts, some nuts, citrus, hop flavor and light hop bitterness. Not sure how this won GABF in 2004 and 2005 in the brown ale category…doesn’t seem to fit the style exactly.

freekyp (1463) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 16, 2006
Though the nose carried a nice nutty aroma, none of the earthiness typical of the style was apparent in the flavor. The profile was very similar to their amber, but with a less hoppy finish. Rather watery and overall unsatisfying.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2006
sampler at the brewpub. Amber in color, with sweet malt, nuts, and vanilla in the aroma. Taste is the same and is sweet, maybe a bit too much diacetyl, if thats what it is, but overall not a bad beer.

on tap-pours a white head with amber color. Aroma wasn’t detectable. Taste was nutty, malt, sweet, mild carbonation. Not my taste.

Preface: This is not my favorite beer style. Review: An American Nut Brown that stands up well to its British counterparts. Really has that fruity-aleness that I guess drinkers find attractive about a nut brown as a darker beer style. A brilliant example of the beautiful brown but not red color that is the trademark of the style.
