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’.

Nice dark color and rich aroma. The palate is good but not great, a little too malty for my taste. Its a very good beer, but there are beter brown ales out there for less than half the price.

I have enjoyed all samuel smith products that I have purchased, this ale has a very distinct flavor and aroma but it is very enjoyable.

A great brown ale. very smooth and a pleasant roasty flavour. nice sweet caramelized maslt taste. the hops are understated so as not to detract from the great malt but not there are just enough hops to keep this from being cloyingly sugary. tremendous brown ale.

As brown ales go this one is excellent, light in body, but very malty, roasted with nice signs of hazelnut and a briefly dry finish. It’s also smoother than your average brown.

Great beer! Great color, goes down smooth. One of my favorites! Everything a Nut Brown Ale should be.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2003 Rerate 8/30/03: Reddish-brown body, clear, small tan head, English hops dominate the nose. Slightly nutty, more roasty, some hops, mildly bitter finish.

My least favorite Sam Smith brew. Certainly not bad, but nothing spectacular as has been the case with their other beers (Oatmeal Stout, Imperial Stout). Slight caramel and fruity flavors. Some nuttiness and malt flavors.

I like most Sam Smith beer, but this stuff didn’t sit as well as most of their stuff for some reason. Might have been the bottle I had, the nutty taste just didn’t mix with the maltiness right.
