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’.

This nut brown ale is a great tasting ale with good malt taste but aftertaste is slightly off for me. Although good, it is not how I remember the beer. A decent pint to enjoy during the spring thaw. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Medium amber, clear, good lacing. Medium body, watery middle, refreshing mouthfeel, with good acidity which makes up for the low alcohol. Avg length, flavorful and faintly nutty, dry finish. Moderatly bitter, dry, Roast malt, rusty, little hop presence, besides bitterness. Invigorating, keeps you awake, not a relaxing, comfort drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beerfest5 (1127) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 21, 2014
In my humble opinion, there is no easier beer to drink than this one. Pours a cola-like brown into the nonick pint glass, normal pillowy head that lasts for awhile, nice lacing on the glass. Nose of bready sweet malts, toffee, some roasted flavor, walnuts. Taste is liquid velvet, caramel, buttery toffee, absolutely delicious.

The nicest English real ale I’ve had since I was in England and had Owd Roger. Very smooth with a good aftertaste.

BLADT (467) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 4, 2014
From 550ml bottle. Pours a dark, blood dried brown with one finger of beige head atop. Clean smelling, with limited nuttiness on the nose. Some brown sugar there as well. Flavor is pleasant malts (nothing dominate) with metallic roundness and hazelnut burn through. Only the metallic taste detracts.
