Brewed with the finest malted barley, imported hops and Spinnakers' own deep well aquifer pure mineral water, Spinnakers Nut Brown Ale exhibits a refreshing light body with hints of delicate nutty flavours. Serve slightly chilled.

Bomber bottle. Nice smooth head and okay brown body. Aroma of hazelnut, syrup, hints of molasses. Flavour is an unintrusive and weak hazelnut with graham crackers notes. Very little going on here in fact.

On tap @ Spinnakers. Light brown pour with an off-white head. A lot of toasted malt aromas. Some roast, a bit of chocolate, and caramel. Toasted hazelnuts, too. Slight fruity ester quality. Flavor is nicely sweet and malty. A lot of toast and caramel. Hints of roast and chocolate. A lot of bread and some roasted nuts. Not bad.

Toasted nut aroma with a brownish color. A small head that dissapeared quickly. Flavor was malty and again nutty. Sweet and flavorful. A good brown ale.

Loved the colour. Small dissipating head. Mild coffee with cream aroma mixed up there with the malt. Taste? Well, I definitely did pick up some nuts here. Not a lot but some. Spinnakerís makes very softly carbonated drinks, I think thatís their forte. Itís an odd thing to say, until you remember the same can be said of Fullerís.

Iím more of a fan of this style than other beer geeks, so I can safely say that since this is Spinnakerís best "sessionable" beer Iíve tried itís the most likely one Iíll buy again.
