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’.

rauchbier (3665) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2003
Bottled. Chestnut red, good cream head and moderate condition. Initial toffee aroma becomes roasted before turning to hazelnut cookie dough. More roast barley and nuts in the taste along with caramel that lingers into the finish to be joined by a long spicy hop bitterness to keep you interested right to the end of the bottle.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2003
Pour produced a stained Oak color with a medium head. Taste was full of flavor and went down smoothly with a slight afterbite. Good brew. Don't know if I agree with all of the high ratings, however.

Ungstrup (30392) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 3, 2003
A deep red beer with a light brown beutiful head. The aroma is roasty, fruity, and fresh. The flavor is roasted, very woody but not dry, smooth, and slightly sweet with a note of breadmold in the beginning. The sweetness lingers on the lips. It's a very complex beer, with a lot of aftertaste.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2003
Nise of malty nut tones. As you would expect, nut brown in appearance with light brown head. Great malt hazelnut taste with dry hopped finish and a long lingering finish. Complex and classy like all Samuel Smith ales. Certainly one of my favourite brewers now.

A good brew with a good smooth taste which is much to my liking.I have found another brew that I could drink all night at a bar or party.

thedm (5139) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAR 27, 2003
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.

BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 24, 2003
A brownish amber color with a frothy head. It has a nutty flavor with a hint of metallic aftertaste.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2003
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.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 21, 2003
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.
