3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber color, thin head. Toffee, tea, malt in the nose. Nice feel to the palate. Syrupy like a bock, more malt coming through. Nice session-style brew.

Had this one bottled in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, under the alias "Nut Brown Ale". Nice light brown pour with a good white head, nice nose of oatmeal and peanuts, and excellent chocolate malt and hops balanced throughout. Very nice!

A bottle of ’Nut Brown Ale’ from the varity 6-pk. Poured a average size head smelling of hops and roasted nuts. The body was more of the same with alittle sweetness added. Hoppy ending.

12 oz bottle. Amber pour with a small off white head. Nutty malt nose, as is the flavor. Lightly bitter walnut finish. Good, but not spectacular.

Lighter brown then the nut brown was, this one was also more disappointing. I enjoyed it less than the Nut Brown Ale for certain. The color was also way off because it was almost yellow. Not bad, not the best though.

Labeled as nut brown ale, but apparently these are the same according to this site. Anyway, i always like brown ales, and this is definitly very nice. Best thing about this is the rich nutty taste. Try it out.

This is the "Nut Brown Ale" in bottle format. Pours a ruby red/brownish/orange, with little or no head. The Aroma is in the name..nutty but not overpowering. How nutty does it taste? Not as nutty as that scene from Austin Powers, but it is quite smashing. Smooth as well, with just a hint of carbo that hits the back of the tongue. There is a malty bitterness in there. Overall, though,it is pretty straightforward, though I imagine it is better on tap.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2006
Well, it’s not only available on tap. The_beer_god sent this to me, and I am very glad. This is a classic cross of a more American nutty Brown ale and a sourish English version. Nice head, but dissapates quickly. Exceptionally sourdoughy yeast, nice malt with bread but sweet. Nutty, but very fresh. Natural. Slightly thin, yet no traces of cardboardy oxidation at all. A nice surprise! The body was totally sufficient to carry what is really a fresh and fragile beer.

Light golden brown color, nice for a brown ale but a little bit too light for my tastes. Malty aroma with minimal other qualities though some nuts are present. A bit sharper than other Brown Ales, carbonation is almost a bit too much for the flavoring. Cool ending.
