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’.

Deep red with a moderate lasing tan head. Has a sweet, fruit/nit taste. Felt smooth during drinking.

Pours a nice deep,dark red. Aroma is a little skunky in mine, im sure it would be different on tap instead of the clear bottle. Flavor is malty and spicey. Lots of smoky bitterness in the end. This brew is ok but all Sam Smith’s brews are decent to excellent.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2004
Chestnut brown. Nice light brown head. Off-white ring disappoints a bit. SMoky caramel nose, very light, but extremely balanced. Nut flavors are obvious, very nicely blended malt. Tasty yet subtle, tobacco finish, yeasty. Fine texture, smooth, gentle medium carbonation. The brown ale against which to compare every other.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 17, 2004
Deep ruby-to-brown colour, pretty looking pinkish head. Full sweet caramelly aroma, big malty and nutty flavour. A BMW among brews.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 From the bottle at Yeoman’s Road Pub in Tampa. Smells almost grape like, sweet, but not cloying. Pours very nice with a thin head. Tastes both nutty (roasty) and mildly sweet. Decent mouthfeel, but a tiny bit thin. Overall a very solid beer.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 14, 2004
A very nice amber brown color with light brown head. Smells of nuts and honey. Tastes the same and really goes well with spicy food. Very smooth and overall a great brew.

Beautiful mohagony colour. Taste is very sweet with the requisite nutty flavour, but with a long dry hoppy finish. Good stuff.

Sully (1380) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2004
The description of a nutty ale is eminently apt. Beautiful colour when phas oured and a brilliant presence in the lasting body. The nose is as nutty as the description and has ’session’ billed all over it. Sit down, enjoy, and have another, another, another. SS, you are the dudes, sorry the gentlemen.

Pours a nice dark brown color. Very crisp and carbonated. You really can taste the roasted malt. Little bit of a nutty flavor. And caramel too.

Pours a warm brown with thin head...very malty and nutty (definately hazelnut)...very nutty taste with a sweet mild finish...fantastic!
