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.

Very nice brown ale. Hoppy and effervescent. Some crisp finish to this malty rich beer.

Can. Pours a clear amber brown with a tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has sweet grains with a bit of nuttiness and a bit of a bread note. Flavor has a combination of sweet grains and bread with just a hint of toffee.

kramer (5348) - 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.

Pours brown, not too surprisingly. Chocolate and caramel with a distinctly nutty finish.

Maxbier (655) - 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 (4451) - 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 (1321) - 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.
