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’.

Ohh my what a fine brown ale this was. Sweet, nutty hazelnut aroma. Dark brown in color, and beautiful mouthfeel, and a delicious aftertaste. Samuel Smith does it again and again!!

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2003 This is excellent. Brown appearance with a good silky texture and lacing. Excellent aroma. The nutty flavor comes out nicely with a bitter finish. My 2nd favorite brown ale to Rogue and yet another fine brew from Sam Smith.

Good ale. Crisp brown color with burnt nut flavors. Finishes slightly bitter. As with most of Sam's beers, this one had good balance.

Beautiful, warm, welcoming brown beer with classic head. A hint of toffee/hazelnut in the aroma. The flavor is subperbly smooth with classically refined bitter nut tones. Beautiful.

Translucent,brown with a big,pillowy,tan head. Rich malt aroma,with underlying nutty,and herbal hops. Good mouthfeel and perfect carbonation. Caramel,nutty flavors fill the mouth.Slightly sweet and hoppy(herbal) finish.Excellent creamy mouthfeel,and the subtle,flavors are inviting as well.

presario (4625) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 10, 2003
Quality in every way, except for the clear bottle. Excellent mouth feel. Deep brown/red colour. Light head with good lacing. Good flavour of light nuts, malt and hops. The big bottle is empty way too fast as is the glass.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - MAR 2, 2003
The mix between the creaminess and nuts didn’t do it for me. Looks very nice—big, quickly dissipating white head. The hoppy smell in the glass wasn’t borne out by the taste. I felt the malt was overbalanced, and that it took away from the great astringent nut taste. It felt disjointed. Mouthfeel was nice and solid and the finish was clean but not bitter enough. Good but lacking in some areas.

A solid nut brown ale. Good flavor; smooth and drinkable. I was hoping for a little more given the cost.

THIS ALE HAD GOOD COLOR WITH A NICE FIRM HEAD. ONE OF THE BETTER IMPORTED ALES OUT THERE WITH NO RUFF EDGES. VERY DRINKABLE. A LITTLE EXPENSIVE
