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 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.

Smells like ammonia. Tastes very strange, almost like it smells. Slightly acidic, bad aftertaste, Color is medium brown.

This is suprisingly not watered down for a brown ale. A nice rich flavoring that has a hint of peanut. Good after taste too.

Very peanutty aroma and a similar flavor... very balanced between malts and a hoppy, ever-so-slightly bitter finish. Thanks Timdanchanta!

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2003
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

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.
