COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed at Samuel Smith’s small, traditional British brewery with well water (the original well sunk in 1758 is still in use), best barley malt, roasted barley, yeast and aromatic hops. Nut Brown Ale is relatively dry with a rich amber-brown colour and nutty flavour derived exclusively from small amounts of dark malt. Brown ales are a specialty of northern England. Fermented in ’stone Yorkshire squares’.

This is a unique and special beer. Very attactive brown color with a creamy smooth nut flavor. Last time I had this was with Lebanesse food. Great stuff.

This is a beautiful beer. I’ve read the numeous reviews for it, and I don’t get it. This beer has the traditional Samuel Smith’s house flavor, which can also be picked up in the aroma. Flavor is mildly nutty, with hints of chocolate, and maybe a tad bit of sulphur. No, it’s doesn’t have a million and a half IBU’s, but it is world class.

This beer is the embodiment of flavor. This has a very unique flavor unlike weaker brown ales and actually tastes like a variety of nuts. Nice smooth conistnency and a small-medium amount of head.

These guys really need to dump the clear bottle. Anyhow, aroma was primarily nutty and actually I thought similar to Rogues most excellent version only not as strong or deep. Poured with a minimal brownish head. More red than I would have expected looking at it in the bottle (almost a Bombay mahogany). The mouth feel was initially round and full moving quickly into a bite of hops and carbonations, but right back to the creamyish mouth feel. Tastes nutty with identifiable hops at the edge giving it more of a nutshell flavor. Some sour floating under the surface. Overall it was OK. I imagine if I was a big fan of the style I would have liked it more?

Had seen this frequently and finally wanted to try it. Caramel notes blended in, but a sour bite to it that offsets it--not sure if its good or not. Definitely England, but a sour version of such. Why can’t real ale that gets shipped over here be more flavorful as it is in cask over there. And 86 the clear glass bottles, please.

Ok. medium brown color. yeasty mellow aroma. tastes like a stouter version of a newcastle brown ale. Below average for a samuel smith offering.

Dark brown with a fairly thick head. Not a bad flavor, fairly malty and nutty. Aftertaste is fairly bitter. Pretty drinkable but probably not something I’d buy too often.

Bottle. Dark brown in color. Huge frothy off-white head. Sweet smell. Tastes slightly sweet, slightly malty, nutty, with a hint of alcohol. Good mouthfeel. Slightly bitter aftertaste.
