COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich, smooth ale has a soft, malt character with a medium body. Look for hints of toasted malt flavor, slight hop bitterness and an amber brown color.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2007 Always a nice surprise when you go to rerate a beer and realize you havenít had it yet. I knew I had a Nut Brown Ale from Saranac, but the Nut Brown Ale I already had from them was "Seasonís Best Nut Brown Ale." Clear amber body with a moderate head. Aroma is lightly malty. Nuts and caramel dominiate.

From 2005 winter 12pk. Medium copper pour with a thick off-white head. Faint aroma of caramel, malt, hops and nuts. Taste begins with a sweet malt taste followed by an earthy and nutty flavor and a slightly bitter hop finish. Not too bad.

Dark red with tan head, thick start then quickly dissapated. Malty aroma, then tea in the palate along with hops, dry finish. This was packaged different than the "seasonís best" I already rated. Not sure if same recipe. I detected more aromas and all in that one.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 3, 2005
Pours a clear mahogany with a thin tan head. no lace to speak of. Smell s of subdued nutty malt with hints of tea leaves. Taste is spicy, nutty, sticky malt, tea leaves and a surprisingly assertive yet rounded hoppy finish. Mouth is a bit thin and also a bit sticky oddly enough. this is a solid holiday offering although something about the texture puts me off a bit. The Fifth Beer of Christmas.

Pours brown and has a tan head. Flavor is blah. Aroma is a bit malty. This brown ale is less than desireable.

Like saying that a brown ale could be íeasy drinkingí is new. Pretty darn unoffensive. If I liked the style, I could down these session style. Nice and malty, not as thin as most... from the bottle on this one... very malty... not bad... holds its own for the price.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Medium copper pour with a thick off-white head. Faint aroma of caramel, malt, hops and nuts. Taste begins with a sweet malt taste followed by an earthy and nutty flavor and a slightly bitter hop finish. Not too bad.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2012 Rated: 2003 version. Iíve seen this in the 12 beers of X-mas in 2000 and again last year (2003). I didnít see it between 2000 and 2003. The great red label says "Seasonís Best". Pours dark brown, with aromas of almonds, hazlenuts, walnuts, and toffee. Tastes smooth, with an abundance of nuts and caramel. Finishes smooth, with more nuts, malt, and subdued sweetness. One of my favorite nut browns. Very complex. I hope they have this for X-mas 2004.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 9, 2003
Medium brown colored brew with a thick light tan head that leaves some terraced lacing as it fades. Nose of hazelnuts ,caramel malts and some floral hop aromas. Taste is smooth, rich and nutty with hazelnuts in the forefront, though I can taste almonds as well. A very smooth and drinkable beer. Reminds me of the best British nutty browns. A definite winner in my book.
