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’.

A great nut brown ale from an awesome brewer. A raisiny, almost liquor-like finish after an earthy body. True to form: nutty, brown and incredible.

Decent enough, but I think I prefer Newcastle over this stuff.

Nice medium brown color, drinks easily, I couldn’t really notice the hops that I have come to love in ales...but overall not a bad ale.

after drinking this brew, I shook my head and gazed at the Bells Best Brown bottle on my shelf wishing Sammy Smith’s tasted as good.. Nice try sammy..

Bottled. In my opinion not as good as it’s reputation would suggest - not a touch on cask beer.

Great roasty flavours, but clean on the palate. Wouldn’t it be wondeful to have 6 of these large bottles lined up in front of you! Unfortunately I only had one. Enjoy yours.

A lighter brown - sweetish and nutty (duh) with a fresh bready backbone and a whiff of hops, but not interesting enough or strong enough to earn my top praise

Roasty-toasty aroma - much like roasted nuts mingling with roasted malt. Clear brown color with minimal head and light carbonation. Nutty, roasty flavors with mild toffee and caramel. Clean, with no lingering aftertaste or discernable finish. No detectable hops. Nice, but not overwhelming.

MWBF 2002: (updated from a previously skunked sample). Deep nutty chocolate aroma. Caramel-nutty flavor and lingering caramel finish. Nice brown color with small head.
