COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Although I don't pick up the standard but brown characteristics, this is a great beer that provides a lot of drinkability.

Caytinator (959) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Pint on tap. Mahogany color. no lacing, small head fades off, clear-ish. Nice sweet malty aroma, nice slightly toasty taste with no hop bitterness--middle-of-the-road for the style; points for complexity. They make beer in Nebraska? I’m impressed!

Draft at the brewpub. Malt forward. Bready American yeast aroma. No hop character in the nose. Taste is a nice malty sweet, light chocolate, mild caramel blend. Good session drinker.

nuplastikk (4567) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2014
12oz can. A pretty solid US brown ale. Malty, easy going, clean...yet some decent depth. Nutty, caramel brown malts,maybe a touch of amber malt, all very judicious. Medium bodied, filtered, quite drinkable. Good.

Transparent brown with just off white head. Caramel, toffee and toasted malt nose. Malt sweetness, toasted with a dry hop flavor finish. Super easy drinking with nice flavor. Not SSNB memorable but tasty.

DruncanVeasey (7285) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
Keg, Blind Tiger, Bleecker St, Greenwich Village, 20/02/14. Ruby ringed with white. Really attractive brittle coffee bean aroma with hints of pistachio and chocolate. Deep layered malt, mellow English brown ale flavour with Curly Wurly, milky mocha, almond and butter biscuit notes. Some blueberry in the blender. Really balanced, rounded and good.
