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’.

550ml bottle at princess Louise, holborn. Pours clear relatively light brown with a large off white head. aroma is nutty, malty, slightly burnt toast, toffee. It is quite a thin, watery beer but great tasting. Roasted malts, nuts and toast. Dry burnt toast finish.

Thats a well brewed ,greatly balanced brown ale of wich kind im not used to here in quebec. The complex nose of bourbon-ish woodness brings me some sweet subtle pear. A little thin in mouth but the subtle sweetness in mouth with light caramel and roasted malt bitterness carry on a long and great finale. Great.

Pian niska, nietrwała, szybko gaśnie do kożuszka, barwa brązowo-miedziana, klarowna. W aromacie zioła, karmel, rum - generalnie delikatny zapach, nieintensywny, przypominający angielskie ESB. Po ogrzaniu dochodzą rodzynki i miód. W smaku też mało intensywności, czuć lekką karmelową słodycz, ciemne pieczywo, kwas chlebowy. Kontra w postaci ziołowo-korzennej goryczki również na niskim poziomie. Wysycenie średnie do niskiego, pełnia niska. Obiecanych orzechów nie wyczułem. Angielski Nut Brown Ale niestety również nie zachwyca. Może jest dość pijalny, ale zdecydowanie zbyt wodnisty, cienki, zapach bardzo nikły, smak jednowymiarowy.

Old rating. Pours a medium brown with a beige head that dissipates fairly quickly. Nice aromas of hazelnut, pecan, toffee and caramel. Taste is more of the same with a good bit of toasted malts. Mild nutty finish with a slight sour undertone. Great stuff.

(Flasche) Es hat eine kupferne bis bräunliche Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer leicht bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Der Geschmack nussig, karamellig, nasses Holz und dunkle Schokolade. Der Geschmack ist wässrig, sonst wie das Aroma, etwas spelzig und spritzig. Die Bittere kommt zusammen mit Röstaromen nur leicht durch

Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours browny amber with a thin tan head. Aroma is fairly mild but you do get quite a bit if caramel and hazelnut up front with perhaps a tinge of grass from the hops. Body is light and carbonation low. It drinks pleasantly but nothing really jumps out. There's some caramel and hazelnut like the aroma suggests with a slight hoppy finish. It becomes slightly sugary as it warms up too. Not too bad but nothing out of the ordinary

Bottle (355 ml) bought @ Winooski Beverage Warehouse.

Appearance: Hazy amber/brown with a small off-white/beige head and little lacing.

Aroma: Quite nutty with toffee along light fruitiness and roasted notes.

Taste: Mild. Hazelnuts, light toffee, hints of fruits and light roasted notes.

Palate: Medium body. Moderate to medium carbonation. A bit thin mouthfeel. Mild nutty finish.

Overall: Mild, but well balanced and easily drinkable nut brown ale. Tasty despite being mild.

Weak aroma of malt and hazelnut. Pours a reddish brown, short lasting tan head. Pleasant mild taste of nuts and malt. Medium body with a hazelnut finish.
