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 well-done English ale. Nothing more, nothing less. Drinkable, error-free, good feel, a tad thin but unusually clean.

An okay beer, nothing special though. Better than any local brown’s I’ve had though. Not too sweet, good carbonation, but fairly light on the hops.

couldn’t finish - too skunky - waiting for brown bottles before trying it again

Just tried a fresher batch. This time, no skunky aroma. A worthy nut brown, but the samples do vary in quality.

Not as sweet as some browns, but a very good brown ale. Nice roasted flavor, and a dry, hoppy finish.

Yummy! Great nutty flavor, sort of like having hazelnut coffee in the form of beer... Very attractive color.. looks like very dark whisky...

What a great beer. I cannot decide whether I like this or Newcastle better as a dinner beer.
