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’.

Pours dark red and brown with a frothy cream colored head. Aroma is rich, sweet, and complex with dark fruit, molasses and dough. The palate is surprisingly light with a sweet flavor and low carbonation. The flavor and finish are somewhat bitter, sugary, and slightly fruity and nutty. Overall the beer is a little thin for what I’d expect from a brown ale, but it is quite enjoyable.

drink cool 10-14°C. Eye: pours a cola brown color with a rather quickly dissipating white to beige head and medium to low carbonation. Nose: sweets, cassis, berries Mouth: wild berries, hops and nutty malts Palate: milky, oat meal, somehow dusty, and nuts as well as nut shells and leaves Overall: nice beer, not as chewy as I expected it to be.

jamaty (1240) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Caoba, brillante. Deja pasar la luz ligeramente. Bonita espuma ligeramente manchada y bastante consistente. Aroma tostado, de frutos secos, almendras…Cuerpo ligero, carbonatación media. Y en el sabor, rica malta aderezada de frutos secos… almendra amarga. Porque el final lo es. Otra buena cerveza de la casa, aunque no entre sus mejores..
