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’.

One of my favorite ales! Very smooth and refreshing after each taste. Not bitter or harsh at all, rather exceptionally smooth. A carmel flavor with just the perfect amount of carbonation. Perfect to drink while viewing a beautiful Bermudian sunset while smoking a wonderful cigar with the woman of your dreams! Nothing gets better than this.

What the hell...mine was like brown tap water. Looked pretty..smelled hoppy....but that only takes me so far especially when it tastes just like watered down iced tea. There was NO nut flavors whatsoever, and nothing discernible to make it a brown ale other than color. Since i blew 10 bucks on a 4 pack the rest better not be this bad (once i get around to them)...not what i expected/hoped.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2007 Rerate Dark copper pour, decent head. Caramel, toasty aroma. Toffee, caramel, nutty flavor. Thickish mouthfeel - hint of metal on the back end. Still solid though. Original 4.2 The pour of the thick creamy head was a sign of things to come. Good nutty flavor and crisp fresh aftertaste.

The nutty flavor was nice, and a bit sweet.

Beautiful reddish brown color with a thick tan head. The aroma is full of roasted nuts and bitter hops. The taste is extremely crisp and refreshing. Tastes like roasted nuts with a crisp bitterness that leaves the mouth feeling clean. Great social drinking beer. One of my favorites!

bright/dark amber; medium head. medium thick taste, the hops are kind of caramel sweet, but not as sweet/nutty as some browns; decent hops helps a lot.

another solid brown ale. The Palate is not overly pleasent... Not a very good shelf life either.

Bittersweet! Pours out with a deep nutty brown with a small head. Aroma was lacking with sweet hints. Taste hits quick with a bitterness which is imidiatly followed with a caramel sweetness and ends with a nutty aftertaste. Overall not bad but not the best I have had. Still have a case so I may re-rate later.

My favorite brown ale. Good body with a great finish. Good blend of carmel and ’nut’.
