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’.

Nice brown colour. Something skunky in the aroma. Very nutty, caramelly and quite malty. Sweet finish.

imdownthepub (10220) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2003
Bottled, Pasteurised. Chestnut brown beer with thick white head. Roasted nut aroma with a thick sweetish body, fully malted, a little fruitiness. Sickly finish and a little sour.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2003
Pours brown-amber with a creamy off white long lasting head. Hops dominate aroma, with caramel and honey in the background. Medium mouthfeel, though not as soft/smooth in the finish. Nice malty sweet start with a bitter crisp finish. Bit of chocolate biscuit in the aftertaste too. Hint of smoke at the back of the mouth. Not bad stuff.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - OCT 20, 2003
Appearance: This pours a very nice clear reddish brown color with a thick tan head. Aroma: The smell of this beer is somewhat nutty and roasty. It's a very pleasant aroma. Flavor: The taste is nutty, malty with a clean finish. The body is light, but the flavor is full. This is a very good beer.

Pretty disapointing, especially given the high price. I agree with the turpentine like smell and taste comments. It's pretty bizarre. I'll have to force down the other three just so I don't feel like I wasted my money.

McWhite (108) - Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2003
Nice thick head, good nutty aroma and full flavor flavor that disappeared to leave a crisp aftertaste

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 6, 2003
Odd because this almost smells like latex paint. A little sweet. Nutty flavor and very smooth. Really not much as far as standing out but is a pleasant drink.

I hear this is a good beer, but all I got was skunky narstiness, (try brown bottles !)

desurfer (1219) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2003
Nice nutty aroma, as the name suggests. Flavor is sweet but not overpowering, with a touch of lighter hops. I'm usually not a brown ale guy, but this was pretty good. Samuel Smith delivers again.
