The Brown Ale style originated in the pubs of England, where beer drinkers desired a beer that was both flavorful and complex, but at the same time mild enough to be a session beer. The Santa Fe Brewing Company's interpretation of this style uses a combination of high mash temperature, hard water, and low-alpha acid hops to produce a product that is both true to the style and distinctly Santa Fe. Brewing jargon aside, Santa Fe Nut Brown Ale is an easy-drinking beer, mild, smooth, and always a favorite. Try a keg at your next party! Malts: 2-row pale, 30-37 l. Carastan, Chocolate Hops: Willamette

Fatehunter (1474) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. Light brown to amber color with a half finger of head. Good lacing. Good, if faint smell of roasted malt. The roasted malt comes through in the taste too. It mixes a little haphazardly with a hops in the middle. The bitterness wins out. Smooth texture turning towards bubbly. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A fine and average brown ale.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear darker brown color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose is nutty and toasty with just a little bit of bread coming through for me. Taste is lightly toasty and slightly nutty on the back end. Decent beer.

onceblind (4965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Clear dark Amber with a thin beige cap. Interesting nose of very light Costa Rica coffee and herbal hops. Chewy toast flavor with a kiss of herbal bitterness and toasted dough.

AndresTM (344) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2014 Mid aroma of malted grain, cereal, hazelnuts, and caramel. The mouthfeel is on the thin side, with moderate but adequate carbonation, making for a very sessionable drink. The taste mostly follows the aroma notes, for a nutty, caramely sweet with a slight grainy bitterness to it. The finish is clean and gently dry. Straightforward, simple, unexciting, but it gets the job done and goes quickly.

"Light caramel and nuts in both the aroma and flavor, but both aspects are fairly weak, with the added benefit of a watery thin feel. Not offensive, but not real good either."

Beer #3 of NM 100. On tap at Gecko's. Hazelnutty. Too syrupy and sweet. Finishes dryer though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beachmaster (202) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 20, 2014
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a dark brown, with a medium light khaki head that quickly fades, leaving fair lacing. Nose is medium roast malt. Taste is mild malt, with an odd iced-tea-like flavor. Very short finish. Moderate carbonation. OK for a session beer, nothing special.

Deep brown pour. No head. Toast, nutty, roast and burnt sugar aroma. Medium body. Enough carbonation. Flavor is balanced. Burnt toast. Bready. Mild to no hops. What hoppiness there is seems to be earthy medium dry finish. Mild bitterness. ---Rated via iPhone

dbhenry (126) - El Paso, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2014
I had this on tap. It has a pretty nice malt flavor, although understated, and it is very under-hopped, so it lacks anything to distinguish it. It is a golden brown color with a nice head.

BOSSbrewer (2249) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Pours a dark reddish brown. Crystal clear. Thin tan head. Aroma is lots of sweet malt with some floral. Flavor is malty and nutty. Very smooth. Very clean medium sweet finish. Nice beer.
