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’.

UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 4, 2002
I think this is the best brown ale, period. Malty, with just "a kiss of the hops". A stately beer, not drawing attention to itself, but renowned as one of the best.

Caramel nose, deep brown color. Nutty and spicy tastes. Full round mouth. Classy beer that is reserved, but oh so good.

uhorpheus (215) - houston, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2002
Rich dark brown with thik head, creamy taste but went down a little thin. More like the taste of a lighter stout than a brown ale.

Dark brown with amber undertones topped with a medium thick to thick head that leaves lots of lace behind. Sweet yet sour malt aroma with a nutty hoppiness in the background and a hint of chocolate. Sweet chocolate malt flavor witha nutty hop background and a chocolatey finish. Medium bodied but relatively smooth.

This brown ale had a wonderful malty nuttyness to balance its bitterness. Loved it.
