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, pours clear light brown with a fading tan head. Not much hops in the aroma, mostly caramel, fig, and a little earth. The body is light-ish, moderate carbonation. Taste of caramel, raisin and grain, with mildly bitter finish.

I bought this bottle at drink of the world in Zürich. I drank it tonight. This beer is not bad, average. The taste is close to a German Bock. The body is brown and the foam is thin, average carbonation. The taste is a little smocked, dry malt, plum and discreet note of nuts at the final, a bit watery, some hop.

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2016
- rot-braune Farbe mit leichter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - leichte Aromen nach Toffee, Nuss und etwas Dörrobst - passende Carbonisierung - der Antrunk ist unaufgeregt mild - der Körper bleibt schlank, ohne ins wässrige abzugleiten - alle Aromen verbinden sich zu einem runden, gut trinkbaren Ale - im Abgang kommen die Bitterelemente etwas stärker zur Geltung, was dann aber auch erstmals zu einer leichten Wässrigkeit führt Fazit: Gut trinkbares Ale, ohne Höhen und Tiefen

From estucerveza. In Ikea’s pint glass. After dinner. Raisins, nutty, with a good amount of bitter hops. Amazing in aroma, pretty drinkable and good taste

Mørkebrun med skum der hurtigt forsvinder. Hasselnødder og brændte mandler, men uden at være sødlig.

Quick3Beers (944) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 3, 2016
Pours a very slightly reddish brown from a bottle, off-white head leaves some lacing. Aroma is a bready toffee. Flavor is like bread dough with some caramel, rather watery, a little metallic although that’s fading as I drink it. Good beer.

martpez (125) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2016
Nutty and malty with the flavors coming from the malts. Has the classic slightly rusty sam smiths taste (which is surprisingly pleasant it tastes of bronze and tradition)
