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’.

Nice thick head, good nutty aroma and full flavor flavor that disappeared to leave a crisp aftertaste

Odd because this almost smells like latex paint. A little sweet. Nutty flavor and very smooth. Really not much as far as standing out but is a pleasant drink.

I hear this is a good beer, but all I got was skunky narstiness, (try brown bottles !)

desurfer (1246) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2003
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.

Deep brown pour with minimal head. Nice aroma with a hint of malt and fruit. Well balanced flavor with malt and hops. Overall not bad.

brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - SEP 27, 2003
This is suprisingly not watered down for a brown ale. A nice rich flavoring that has a hint of peanut. Good after taste too.

UNCCTF (512) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - SEP 26, 2003
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.
