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’.

Rich dark brown with thik head, creamy taste but went down a little thin. More like the taste of a lighter stout than a brown ale.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 28, 2002
Dark brown with amber undertones topped with a medium thick to thick head that leaves lots of lace behind. Sweet yet sour malt aroma with a nutty hoppiness in the background and a hint of chocolate. Sweet chocolate malt flavor witha nutty hop background and a chocolatey finish. Medium bodied but relatively smooth.

This brown ale had a wonderful malty nuttyness to balance its bitterness. Loved it.

I have had great samples, sometimes rather nuanaced, bu not often enough to keep me from thinking this is ultimately overpriced for what is often a prune-beer light.

I found this beer to be very enjoyable. Hazy iced-tea appearance with rapidly dissipating head. Has a very creamy and nutty taste. The hops balance this brew out perfectly.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 4/7/02: slight skunky aroma at first but in time turned into a nice roasted nut aroma, very nutty in flavor, and perfect color for a brown ale, an exceptional brown ale

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 20, 2002
Re-Rate 11/19/02: The beer pours a translucent deep garnet to brown color, the head preposterously large, the texture creamy smooth, the lace a fine lattice, to coat the glass, both a light tan color. Malt dominates the nose, nutty sweet, hints of caramel, the start sweet, the top middling. The finish is sparingly carbonated perfectly hopped, dry malt aftertaste. A decent brew all around as far as I am concerned, but not one I try very often?

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.
