Brun er en upasteurisert og ufiltrert belgisk type ale. Øl fra Nøgne Ø er flaskegjæret, noe som medfører at man bør behandle flasken med varsomhet før servering, slik at sedimentene ikke forstyrres. Brun har en fin fruktighet som er balansert opp mot god maltsødme. Anbefalt serveringstemperatur 8 grader C. La det bygge en skumtopp. Vi anbefaler Brun som en god kompanjong til vellagrede oster, alternativt ulike kjøttretter.

Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Hazy brown pour. Slim tan foamy head. Sour brown fruit. Cigarettes. Prunes. Hemp. Burlap. Bark. Brown sugar - but more sour, dry and smoky than sweet. Less complicated than other Haand beers but nice and solid.

Fred82 (2123) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2011
500ml bottle from IPB at home.
Appearance : Deep brown with a small creamy head. Light lacing.
Aroma : Butterscotch with roasted malt and caramel. quite malty with light hops. Hops are more earthy and a bit floral. Light belgian yeast too. A little bit nutty. Some fruits.
Taste : Overcooked caramel with light butterscotch. Light bitterness that comes from the light hops as well as the caramelized malts.Notes of toffee. Earthy and a bit mineral. Finish has light notes of belgian yeast with light nutty notes.
Overall : Soft carbonation, nice mouthfeel. Nothing outstanding. a bit too much butterscotch. Quite drinkable. Nose gets a bit better with time. Yeast shines thru a bit more. Nice complexity on nose.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Aroma was typical brown ale. Smoked leaves, caramel, and pumpkin seed. Poured brun with white lacing. Tasted like a brown ale. Brown sugar, roasted caramel and a slight pine hop. Very light in the mouth and taste. Forgettable.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - DEC 26, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2009 50 cl bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Dark brown color, nice beige head. Aroma is typical Belgian; spices and yeast, but also malt. Flavor is moderate sweet malty, fruit, yeast and spices, with hints of hoppy bitterness. Not a kicking beer from NØ, but very drinkable. Maybe too fresh; I will rate it again when it´s released at Vinmonopolet in a couple of months.
