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’.

12 oz bottke. : Pours a clear chestnut color with a light tan rocky foam head that dissipates rather fast into a light coating. Very slight earthy smell with a light nutty smell with a light butterscotch scent. Very faint, but it opens up a bit as I drink more. Bready clean malt foretaste with an earthy nut flavor into a slight earthy hops flavor. : Medium bodied with very light carbonation and a semi-dry finish.

A good but not great beer. Too malty and bitter for me. A nice color and not to much aroma.

Marrón, con espuma abundante. Muy dulce, ya en el aroma tira para atrás el azúcar, en el sabor igual, azúcar por encima de la malta tostada. Como una belga dulzona más floja de alcohol.

Poured from a big bottle. Nice deep brown coloring with a small foam head. Smells of malty chocolate. Tastes of bitter chocolate. Slightly bitter after taste. It's decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Una delle più buone che ho assaggiato di Samuel Smith. Gusto molto intenso di nocciola, con note di caramello, malto e un tocco di cioccolato. Notevole!

Bottle, pours a coppery color with a white head, tastes of bread, chocolate, and hint of nuts. Very nice beer.

Great nutty aroma. Pours a deep brown with two fingers of light brown head. Quality caramel malt flavors come through, complimented very well with a nutty flavor. Nice and clean on the palate. An excellent beer, especially on a cold day.

This nut brown ale is a great tasting ale with good malt taste but aftertaste is slightly off for me. Although good, it is not how I remember the beer. A decent pint to enjoy during the spring thaw. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
