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’.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 3, 2003
A deep red beer with a light brown beutiful head. The aroma is roasty, fruity, and fresh. The flavor is roasted, very woody but not dry, smooth, and slightly sweet with a note of breadmold in the beginning. The sweetness lingers on the lips. It's a very complex beer, with a lot of aftertaste.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2005
(Bottle 55 cl) Not surprisingly a nutty brown colour with a rich, beige head. Completely dominated by rich malts with notes of caramel and nuts. Quite full-bodied and dry with only a discreet bitterness. Very pleasant and drinkable. 160301

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 29, 2002
Dark amber ale. Very nice hop aroma, and some malt. Not outstanding, just an evident bitterness and some hop aroma in the (quite long) final.
