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’.

Smooth and a nice overall impression. Color is good, head decent. A solid performer with a good flavor. Too bad it is as pricey as it is.

The nutty aroma and strong roasted body leave no doubt that this is the leader of the pack as far as brown ales are concerned. A much, much better alternative to New Castle.

I like the bitterness of this nut brown ale. Leaves a wonderful taste on your palate, like most Samuel Smith’s beer does. Maybe too bitter for some, but I welcome the bold taste choice.

This is similar to New Castle brown ale, but the flavor is more rich and distinct. One of the best ale’s I have had. Rich nutty taste, and extremely smoothe.

One of my favorites to relax with at home.

Good aroma, malty, with some hops for balance. Not one of my faves.

Good brown ale. Nice nutty flavor with a bitter finish. A good alternative to stouts/porters every once in awhile. Will probably drink again

I remember really liking this beer when I tried it years ago, but now I have no idea why. Little aroma, though what’s there is nutty/caramel. The flavor is nothing exceptional -- mild bitterness and a little nutty maltiness. Very smooth, with a bitter nutty aftertaste.

Kathy (241) - Washington DC, USA - APR 28, 2002
Rich, creamy head with a vaguely lemony scent. Reddish-amber color, like the color of almonds (nut brown!). The flavor is mild, not too complex, and with a pleasantly bitter finish. A nice beer, but not one I would seek out on a regular basis. Not enough oooomph for me.

A beautiful reddish brown color, not much aroma, head dissipates rapidly, disappointing lack of flavor, not strong, not light, very dry, it just dulls the palate, nothing developing, this isn’t a whole lot better than a Leinenkugel’s Red, which is a beer to gulp, not sip, probably needs food, as there’s really not much of a lingering finish here.
