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’.

Dark brown colour. Aroma is sweet, with caramel, licorice, malts and nuts. Flavour is sweet, slight malts. Finish is slightly malty and dry.

Nice deep brown color, little head that fades to a clinging lace on the sides of the glass. Malty aroma. Tastes of malt and lightly nutty. Finish is pretty dry and sweet. Not very carbonated. Better than Rogue Hazelnut Brown.

Fine color and nice aroma. But I don’t like the flavor of this beer. It was hard to get to the bottom of the ½ l bottle.

Medium brown color. Medium white frothy head. Aroma is malty and nutty. A medium bodied brown ale. Malts are nutty and slightly sweet. Hops are evident but mild. This is a fairly typical example of English brown ale. Everything is sort of mild and middle of the road. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. A decent very drinkable beer. Milder flavor, smooth taste. Mouthfeel is a little thin. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Clear glass......Tried several. One was flat and very thin. The other was well carbonated, big head and noticeably better tasting. Good version: Big lasting head, nutty/sweet with a bit of a bitter finish. Balanced. Not great, good! Points given for the good bottle. Clear glass is Sam Smiths downfall when imported to the US.

One of my favorite brown ales. Smooth, nice nutty tones, pours with a good creamy head. Really, the only downside is that it’s fairly overpriced.

Translucent brown, earthy spicy nose. Earthy and spicy throughout with a subtle bitter dry finish.
