COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

A good session nut brown, could be a good step up for a not so crafty craft drinker. not a whole lot going on with the flavor but good brown ale you can drink a few of, for me thats a plus.

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.

Drjohnrock (427) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Twelve ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club. Medium dark amber/brown color, sweet malty nose, sweet malty flavor compromised by chemical notes, astringency. Probably not the best introduction I could have to this particular brewery.

Cannot get any of Santa Fe’s brews around here but we got lucky and got this 1 bottle. Love this brewery, visited it in the fall of 2012, great time.

jerohen (1962) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2014
Bottled, somewhere in Santa Fe. Red-brown colored, medium head. Malty nose, some hops, caramel. Caramel malty flavor, some licorice, dry in finish. Not bad, but not really my kind of beer.

shigadeyo (2964) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2014
1/27/2014: Santa Fe Nut Brown Ale... Nutty and roasty with a bit of hop flair in the finish; textbook Nut Brown that’s quite good; beautiful deep amber color. 12 fl. oz. bottle (5.13% ABV) from Brian. Thanks! Rating #216 for this beer.

Vestlake (82) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 2, 2014
This is a pretty good brown ale overall. Not as good as some of the higher rated browns, but nice aroma and taste.

chicagobears (401) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Pours a reddish brown into pint glass. Has faint aromas of honey, brown sugar and molasses. Nutty taste of almonds, wheat and honey. A slight dry smokiness in the finish. Nice finish on the palate.

Pours a clear dark brown with a light tan day. Aroma is smoked toasted nuts. Taste is malty and sweet up front followed by a clean nuttiness that finishes dry. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
