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’.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a rich medium to dark brown with a translucent red hue and had an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown foamy head that had decent retention and produced some nice lacing. The aroma was that of a roasted caramel malt and a leathery yeast with notes of coffee, dark chocolate and molasses. It tasted very malty and mildly sweet with a hint of chocolate at first and finished with a slightly bitter coffee flavor that stayed with you for a nice long while after the swallow. Its mouthfeel was tremendous, smooth and creamy in texture and a solid medium in body with a very soft carbonation. Overall a superb Nut Brown ale, one of the best I have ever tried. But then again most brews from this brewer are just awesome!!

550 ml bottle. Pours clear copper with a light brown head. The aroma is moderatly malty - bread and roasted malt together with some grassy hoppiness and also a little yeasty. Pleasant creamy mouthfeel with soft to lively carbonation. The flavor starts light sweet with some fruity acidity and a bitterness that becomes more pronounced towards the finish. Roasted malt with some caramel and nuts and mild coffee in the aftertaste - all aromas a little hidden. Overall not too exciting but a nice brew.

Fules (477) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 10, 2016
Gyönyörű mahagóni szín, közepes, nem túl tartós hab. Illata édeskés, aszalt gyümölcsös, diós. Íze édeskés, karamelles, pici kakaóval és aszalt gyümölcsökkel. Icipici keserű, alacsony karbonáció, közepes test, jó összhang.

BenL8 (35) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 4, 2016
330ml bottle at home. A classic for every occasion. Nice brown colour with little foam with a bready and very biscuity aroma. Some caramel and maybe some chocolate. Quite thick mouthfeel. Flavour is quite complex, very biscuity and lots of caramel, chocolate and a hint of herbal hops. Great classic.

Bella brown ale, tonaca di frate con poca schiuma, aroma fantastico di nocciola, invece al palato spicca meno.
