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’.

Bottle. A- Nuts, malts, bread. A- Brown color, hazy liquid, minimal head. T- Slightly malty, nutty. P- Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- A fine brown ale. The nut tones are very prominent. The British are some of the best brown ale makers and this shows it.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into an english pint glass; thin aroma to go with a thin, tight head; nice, dark cola brown color; almondy nuttiness flavorings; medium body; overall, a pleasant, comfortable brown ale.

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 (232) - 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 (399) - 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.
