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’.

Pours a nice deep brown with a huge tannish head. Aroma of malt with bits of fruit. Some nuts in the flavor, though malt is more apparant. Nice finish to a good brown.

Amberish color, foam exploded out of the bottle. Malty aroma with a hint of fruit. Initial taste was slightly sweet then quickly went dry. Nice lace,no real nut taste. Nice beer if the only other choice is Miller or Bud

3fourths (8293) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Brown sugar, barkdust, paint thinner in the aroma. Ammonia and turpentine again... skunky you say? Just a little. Not enough to warrant no rating, because every bottle of this that I've ever had tastes the same. Maple, skunked paint thinner, with medicine like flavors in the finish.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2005 Medium sized off-white head. Dark amber colour. Malty, very nutty, balancing bitterness, long finish. Nice english ale.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 18, 2003
Color is just like what you see to the left. A nice puffy head with a little less lacing than I like to see. Aroma is not very nutty but the caramel maltiness was there. Flavor was slightly sweet with a slight english hop background. Finishes very smooth and easy, stays in your mouth but easy drinking. This was pretty good, I always like a good samuel smith beer.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2003
Nice amber color with a good lasting head - lots of lace. There is not much character to the flavor or palate of this one. Not impressive, but I won't waste it.

bob32256 (171) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2004 My second rating of this beer was much better than my first; the color is a dark brown with a tan, long-lasting head; nice aroma of hops; very smooth; taste of coffee and dark chocolate; the finish is bitter, but pleasantly so; a very good ale

TheBeerGod (5366) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2003
Pours brown with a tan head. Smells malted but somewhat skunky. I wish they would use dark bottles. Decent malted nutty taste and finish. Decent beer but too reminescent of Newcastle. Not a very original or complex beer.

looks and smells fine, but then...Should be a lacquer rather than a liquor: you hear those stories where people drink their rubbing alcohol at rehab for the alcohol content; well here is some more.

Dark brown, lighter brown head. Roasted and nutty aroma. Flavor of roasted malt and nuts. A tiny bit too thin, but all in all a good brown ale.
