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’.

Very pretty red color, deep. No skunk, even with the clear bottle. Far superior to Newcastle. Very malty, with a very English hop presence. Actually, not my favorite Brown... I have never been incredibly impressed with Sam Smith, maybe it’s my wanton need for American hops and malts, who knows...

660 ml bottle. Deep brick red and clear. Tan lasting nice head. Slight carmel fruity aroma. Smooth carmel malt flavor. Nice body. A malt lover’s brew for sure. Slight hint of bitterness in the finish.

This is a pretty good beer. Very enjoyable drink, as it goes down smooth and flavourful. I have only had it out of the bottle and would love to try it on tap.

Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2004
Slight fruitiness, caramel malt, sherry and wet cardboard in the aroma. Clear red-amber color, decent off-white head. Caramel and hazelnut in the flavor, just a hint of herbal hops, even finish. Medium-full body, pretty smooth. I’m glad I finally found an un-skunked bottle of this beer. A little oxidized, but not bad.

Dark Coloring. Slightly Roasted Flavor. Not a bad brown ale at all. Not overly nutty like some tend to get.

This beer has a very dark appearance with an off white rocky head. Pleasant roasty sweet aroma with some alcoholic presence. The mouthfeel is at first watery but flavours galore are apparant. Burnt pie crust, roasted malts, and smoky nuttiness are readily discernable. The brew starts sweet but ends a little bitter. There exists a copious amount of Lacing on the glass. For such a watery conconction and to pull off everything that I have mentioned I am sure is not an easy task. Kudos to Sam Smith and Co. This beer accomplishes a true balance between a hardy beer and a very drinkable potion that can be had again and again and again . Salud!

Clear reddish-brown with a huge tan head. Sweet roasted, nutty, malt aroma. Roasted, nutty taste. Sweet to start with a light bitter aftertaste. Samuel Smith’s has always been one of my favorite brewing companies (we go back a long way) and the Nut Brown is on of my favorite beers brewed by them.

Dark red/brown, ok head. Aroma from nuts and cherry. Flavor is creamy and nutty with a mild and pleasant finish. A very good beer.

Not much bad to say about this beer. It say’s drink me as all the Sam Smith’s do. Very little hoppy taste. Malty and yummy. I like this beer a bit warmer then recommended. Very light and easy on the palate...watery finish. No lingering aftertaste. Only negative is that I just drank my last one!
