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

chicagobears (422) - 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.

AndresTM (310) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - OCT 11, 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."

ketchepillar (1106) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - SEP 15, 2014
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 (149) - 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.

ozarkspops (366) - - JUN 22, 2014
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 (1696) - 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.

Drjohnrock (431) - 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.

Bottle brought back from New Mexico by my buddy Holt. First NM beer I've tried. Nice brown cola color. Aroma of nuts and roasted malt. Taste is smooth. A good brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
