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: JUN 4, 2003 Nice malty aroma. Its initial pour yielded a nice light brown head full of medium bubbles with a dark brown transparent body. Initial taste was full of flavor and went down very smoothly while leaving the remains of a subtle after bite. All in all, it is a very nice first brew to sample this evening.

A brownish amber color with a frothy head. It has a nutty flavor with a hint of metallic aftertaste.

A stained wooden color with medium head. Aroma is of roasted nuts. Again the nuts are very noticable in the taste, much more so than Rogues. A beer you have to be in the mood for.

Has a nice ruby/brown color with some carbonation and a slightly skunky smell. Taste is of roasted malts and has a moderately bitter finish. Overall I am not a big fan of brown ales and this beer is not for me.

Bottled. Not being a brown fan becauce I haven't found one that really has any flavor. This one fits the bill. Tasted as what it should be. A boring beer.

This beer really is nuts! toffee and nutty aroma, dark ruby hue with an off-white head, I could sense nuts, malts, toast and woodiness in this brew, this is almost like a cross between an altbier and an ale, long malty finish, this beer has a tremendous aray of flavours and is highly recommended.

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!!

Shag (2638) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 14, 2003
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.
