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

Tessic (926) - Brantford, Ontario, - SEP 22, 2012
This nut brown poured a dark amber colour with a nice, foamy, tan coloured head. To the nose there are scents of sweet malt, passion fruit and dough. First sip was delicous with flavours of lightly sweet malt, light smoke and floral hops. Finish is rich and mildly sweet with earthy smoke lingering.

Chestnut pour, no head. Nose is medium kilned malt. Bittersweet. Middle is soft caramel and nutty grain. Finish is slightly sweet with hints of toffee. Very much in the British brown realm

Slipstream (2218) - USA - MAY 10, 2015
Pretty malty and lightly sweet. Flavor has some complexity but not in an especially good way. A little yeast, iron, dashes of lemon and coca cola. Nothing great.

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 (5313) - 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 (362) - 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."
