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’.

Fatehunter (1579) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Poured into a tulip glass. A medium brown color, almost the same as the color of the label. Two fingers of dirty head that held nicely. Quite an experience for the nose: nutmeg, alcohol (weird with so low ABV) and grain. Good malt at first but not sweet. Followed by candy sweet, then a slightly bitter ending. Silky smooth, low carbonation and medium bodied. What a treat. Outstanding beer. The texture was incredible. Find some now for yourself.

tekstr1der (120) - New Hampshire, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Clear brown pour with thin tan foam. Aroma of caramel and biscuit with a slight, not-unpleasant astringency. Flavor is remarkably balanced - sweet caramel malt offset by a semi-dry nutty finish. This is smooth and delicious. A favorite of the style.

Nevalainen (230) - FINLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Color is brown with tan head. Aroma of nuts, caramel. Taste is sweety, with lightly bitter finish. Very good beer, but I’m missing something, maybe a bit stronger taste.

Towey1989 (378) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep brown colour with a foamy off white head. Aroma of chocolate, raisin, roasted nuts, some brown sugar and caramel. Taste of roasted nuts, chocolate, raisin, caramel and spicy, earthy hop bitterness. Light bodied but quite a watery texture. A dry, bittersweet, nutty, cookie finish. Really nice malty flavours with great British hop bitterness. Shame it’s so thin for a 5 percenter.

Belíssima cor marrom envelhecido. Aromas intensos de malte com notas de caramelo, nozes, toffee, chocolate. E no paladar, corpo médio com os sabores seguindo a linha dos aromas. Excelente!
