Pours a nice nut brown color. Aroma is of caramel malt, hazelnuts, fruit and spices. Taste is caramel sweetness with nuts at the beginning followed by a nice bitterness. Body is medium with good drinkability.

Not quite sure what the fuss is about this stuff. It’s got a nice nutty/toffee aroma, but it’s also kind of watery, and has way more mineral taste than I’d like. Decent but kinda blah

550 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark golden brown with lasting light tan head and thick lacing. Aroma is mild and sweet: malty, with a hint of roasted nuts. Flavor is same, with malt dominating upfront, and nutty character in the finish. Thin to medium bodied, moderate carbonation, malty sweet finish.

550 mL bottle poured. Love these uniformed bottles by the way. Pours a copper color with a lasting head. Super sweet candy malt aroma. Flavor is really mild. Slightly nutty, not quite as much as I expected. Dry malt finish. Another pretty good beer from these guys. Enjoyed it.

Still probably my favorite nut brown. Delivers on both taste and nostalgia. Good flavor.

Amber with medium low carbonation, light caramel and chocolate aroma and flavor, the nutty character is very subtle. Well attenuated, dry and crispy. A good beer, good brown ale, English style.

Toll malzig-nussiges Bier. Nicht zu süß, schön trocken-malzig mit tollem nussigen Unterton. Schöne Ale-characteristik, leicht herber, nussig-malziger Nachgeschmack. Lecker!

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass
Appearance: pours a thick, sudsy off white head that slowly recedes with moderate lacing. Color is a mostly clear light brown with plenty of streaming carbonation.
Aroma: rich roasted malts, caramel, nuts, earthy hops.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, frothy, with a wet finish.
Flavor: terrific combination of roasted malts, sweet caramel, ripe fruit, and a definite nuttiness. There are some tangy and earthy hops in the backbone.
Overall: a world class beer for sure. Perhaps the standard by which all other English style Nut Brown’s should be judged.
