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’.

Pours a nice deep amber with a good creamy head. Aroma of toasted malt, golden syrup and EKGs. Wonderfully balanced with a great finish. This brewery makes some of the best session beers in the world.

Crockett (1081) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2004
Pours dark red/amber. Light aroma with hints of roast. Earthy nutty roast. Medium sweet with notes of spice and salt? Malts come out in the end with a touch of citus. Not terrific. And I love Sam Smith.

Good tasting beer, but everytime I get this beer I get so thirsty from drinking it that I drink more. I love Samuel Smith's Imperial Stout (unfortunate my liquor store was out)

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2006 Nice aroma, short lived head. Excellent reddish brown color. Nutty, malty flavour. Raisin and apple notes. Cloying sweetness. Cheers!

Lives up to the name brown ale. Was hoping for more complexity and personality from this one but it's ok.

An intense burst of roasted nuttiness reaches my nostrils upon opening. Pours with a thick, creamy, billowy head, almost curdley. The color is a gorgeous dark brown. The taste is terrific! Sweeter and more intense than a Newcastle. A very, very English tasting Ale. Defined by its nuttiness, of course, especially walnut. Follows through with a smooth, smokey flavoring. A long lasting palate. A pleasure to drink. Near perfect.

Excellent nutty flavor, that drops off too quickly. Slightly watery. Smooth and good.

Boutip (5829) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2004
Bottle - Poured a clear brown colored beer with a medium head that has very little retention. Smells of hops is clearly present with a very subtle touch of nut sweetness. Taste is very ''creamy'' with again a sweet touch of hazelnut. Medium body with standard carbonation. Overall, this is a good beer but I would have enjoyed it more if the hazelnut taste had been more accentuated.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 11, 2004
Full reddish-amber with toasty malt aromas. Pretty sweet up front with hints of vanilla and roasted caramel. Also some drier, nuttier malt flavors and lingering earthy hop notes in the finish. Hazelnut flavor leaves a very nice aftertaste.
