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’.

Another Sam Smith winner. Very smooth and nutty.

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’.

Smells and looks great but it is lacking something special in the taste. the hops do not show up, not even the little bit they should for the english style and the nuttiness is the predominant factor. very nutty and caramelly as has been commented by many people. nice and smooth to drink but there are others with more flavor.

How come I never like this beer as much as I ’should’? Sam Smiths is a great and traditional brewery and this is one of its classic products, so why don’t I like this more than Newcasle? Well the answer of course is taste and how true imported ales never seem to do very well. Always past its prime. Loss of flavor leaves this beer thin bodied and a bit cardboardy.

This beer rocks. A beautiful amber color. The nose is floral and peppery. A bit thin and bitter for a nut brown; not all that well balanced. I personally like a brown which is a bit on the malty side. Has a very nice, crisp, clean, dry finish. There are much better brown ales out there, but this one definitely deserves a taste.

Aroma of caramel, nutty taste a little bland.

Nice aroma - sweet malts with just a bit of fruitiness or light chocolate. Great dark brown color with off-white head. Persistent. Medium watery body with pleasant carbonation. Flavor starts a bit sweet with a little tang, then gets you with some nice bitterness. A nice finish with nutty after.

This is a damn fine ale. Smooth going down the gullet. Good flavor and I love the roasted flavor. ;)
