Our version of the classic English-style Nut Brown Ale has a blend of 6 different malts and very little hop bitterness. The malts are nutty and sweeter tilting toward coffee, toffee, and caramel.

Tap at Blind Tiger, Nyc. Nut brown color, good off-white head. Aroma has caramel and light toasted maltyness. Medium-bodied. Some caramalt in front, then bready notes with earthy hoppyness. Short, even watery finish. Simple.

Can. Pours a slightly hazy brown color with a smallish light tan head on there. Nose is a bit light, but has some toasting and nuttiness coming through with just a hint of toffee. Taste has just a hint of sweetness, but is dominated by a crisp caramel-toast note. Interesting brew.

onceblind (5312) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Deep hazy nutty amber with a thin light beige head. Basic brown ale nose of nutty pale chocolate malt and earthiness. Medium body with a quasi boring brown ale malt body. This brown ale is a prime example of why I’m bored of brown ales. No nuance, no fuss. Just brown malts on a medium palate.

Weak aroma of malt pours a cloudy brown color with no head. Watery feel with a light malt taste and transient malt finish.

cards04 (2217) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 19, 2015
Definitely one of the more interesting brown ales I’ve had considering the style is one of the most boring IMO. Nice coffee aromas.. Some roasted nuts too. Flavors are coffee with notes of burnt caramel. Solid brew.
