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’.

Even though the bottle I got looks like it was around since the 70’s, this was a very tasty Ale. It has a strong nutty flavor.

A very good beer but mostly disappointing due to the general quality of Samuel Smith’s Beer in general and the fact that this is my favorite style. Good color, good nutty aroma, good full flavor, but it was just missing the added kick that usually puts Sam Smith on the top of the brewing world, you know?

Beautiful color, rich aroma, great head, and fantastic body. Strong taste of nuts. An excellent brown ale.

This is a great brown ale, full of flavor and very nutty. Nice color and head. Has much more character than the standard Newcastle brown ale.

A nice, mellow, smooth ale with a decent flavor. Very nice head and color. Not my style, but good for what it is.

Good stuff. Nutty as its name suggests.

a decent brown ale. Excellent clarity and a dark rich brown color. Crisp malty taste with a good blend of hopps.

Initially ultra-carbonated with a nice brownish-red fluff hea atop the ruby body. The head settles into a layer of rocky cream. From the first whiff, this beer smelled badly skunked. After aeration, nutty maltiness appeared and the air cleared somewhat. Malt-nut blend tilted in the nuts flavor with a slight bitterness and tinniness on the palate.
