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.

kramer (5174) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Can. Pours a clear amber brown body under a small frothy beige head that fell to a thin film. The nose is sweet, nutty, slighty husky, light roast coffee, and a bit of caramel. The flavor is a little heavy on the hazelnut like nutty sweetness. It comes across as a bit thin, but I suppose that’s the point of an English style Brown. Finishes slightly husky and earthy with a lingering nutty sweetness. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Not the best among the style, but it’s fairly solid.

Maxbier (444) - Maryland, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Medium brown pour (SRM18), with two finger tan head. Aroma is nutty roasty light malt. Slightly roasty medium malt feel, mild hop character (just enough so it's not sweet). Very nice, very drinkable, hint sweet but not sugary nut brown.

obguthr (4171) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Can: Mild aroma of dried leaves, pecans, coffee. Clear brown, thin yellow head. Coffee and pecan flavor, a little better intensity, but still fairly mild. Neutral, neither sweet nor dry. Light body, easy carbonation. Quaffable and sessionable, but not too boring.

degbert (1225) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Can. Pours a really clear and lovely medium brown with a soft, fine-grained, off-white, lacy head. Nose is smoke, dust, roast, and nutty yeast. Dry and rich without being overwhelming on the tongue; smoke, black tea, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and roast pecans. Finish is long, clean, and a touch tannic. Really good example of one of my favorite styles. I could drink a lot of these.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Aromas of toasted malts and caramel, with hints of nuts and suggestions of coffee. When held to the light, the pour is a clear but dark reddish-brown with a short-lived tan head and minimal lacing. M-m-m This a very tasty brew considering the ABV. Its malt forward in flavor - toasted malts, nuts, bread, and caramel. Medium body and moderate carbonation. In summary, my first beer from Nebraska and it was worth the wait. The is not flat like Newcastel.

Bottle. A- Malty, slightly nutty, subtle caramel. A- Dark mahogany color, clear liquid, beige head. T- Malty, caramel, slightly nutty, toasty, toffee. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. O- It’s a Brown Ale. Brown Ales are never really anything exciting. This pretty much fits the mold. Fairly bland and lots of malts.
