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’.

DeliveryDriver (170) - Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Pours a clear amber with a big, creamy, light tan head that dissipates slowly into a cap and leaves some nice lacing. Strong aromas of caramel, butterscotch, toffee, and some nuttiness. Bold malt flavors, nice creamy body. Long sweet, toffee like finish. Solid brown ale, the finish brings it down a tad bit for me.

A malty and quite sweet aroma. Smooth and quite rich texture. Full flavoured with a nice balance of sweet versus dry.
