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’.

One of my favorite brown ales. Smooth, nice nutty tones, pours with a good creamy head. Really, the only downside is that it’s fairly overpriced.

Chestnut brown, crystal clear w/ tones of ruby too. Creamy, light brown, good size head. Spices and nuts, and of course that wierd "sammy smith" taste. Caramel and roasted notes in the nose as well. Chocolatey & smooth, nice mouthfeel, long finish with lots of sweet, sweet malt.

UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 4, 2002
I think this is the best brown ale, period. Malty, with just "a kiss of the hops". A stately beer, not drawing attention to itself, but renowned as one of the best.

Caramel nose, deep brown color. Nutty and spicy tastes. Full round mouth. Classy beer that is reserved, but oh so good.

YogiBeera (2558) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2002
Bitter malty and nutty nose. Light brown body with hints of red. Also nutty and malty flavor. Thin. "Mmmh, that’s a pretty good beer" (pivos Dad)
