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 (34658) - 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 (25063) - 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

Bottled at Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Pours well... nut brown and clear with rich firm head. Aroma of toast, hay and molasses. Sweet with clean mouthfeel. Some drying grassy hops with notes of paper and syrup. Gerntly roasty with a touch of pears. Low to medium bitterness in a drier salty finish.

Bottle in the lovely Princess Louise. Bright clear amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Smooth airy palate with light fine carbonation. Tangy malts with touches of unsweet toffee and molasses. Light dried fruits, some bitterness. Finishes dry and crispy carbonated nibble. Decent malt led beer.
