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’.

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.

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.

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.

One of my favorite brown ales. Enough malt to keep a malt fiend like me happy. I still prefer scottish ales and strong ales but this is nice for a change.

A beautiful brown ale, nice head. Very inviting aroma of malts and what I guess is hazelnuts. Taste is malts with more hazelnut. Very smooth, but it seems almost "greasy" and doesn’t sit too well. Maybe that’s just me.

Used to be my favorite nut brown ale, but i’ve found better now, but either way its a good brown ale, and I would still drink it
