I enjoyed this brown ale. I thought the pour was very nice and it had a good mouthfeel that was not too thick. The beer had a certain twinge of their others. Iíd like to try it on draft.

12oz bottle (Nut Brown Ale). Poured a clear light amber color with a white small head, and no lacing. Aromas of hazelnuts, cocoa, and sweet caramel. The taste is very malty with lots of sweet caramel and a bit of toasted malt flavor and a touch of hops bitterness in the finish. Body is relatively light with a good bit of carbonation.

12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Nut brown ale label. Pours a clear reddish amber color with a medium sized frothy brown head. Good head retention and decent lacing. Malty aroma with nutty notes, a hint of chocolate and citrus and leafy hops. The taste is pale malts, nuts, leafy hops and a bit of a salty note. Thin-medium bodied. Decent, not great.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Very malty, with lots of cereal and nuts.
Appearance: Poured from a bottle, but no head what so ever, which was disappointing for a Brown Ale. Hazy amber color.
Taste: Light sweetness, but nothing much.
Palate: Light body with a thin texture, average carbonation.
Overall: Itís drinkable, but I certainly wouldnít search it out.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nut Brown label. Pours a clear honey color w/ a thin white head that disappears rater quickly. No lacing. Smells biscuity, bready, caramel, with a little roasted malts. Hint of hops but not much. Medium-light body, thin in the finish and balanced in the finish.On the tongue, I get the roasted malts (not big) first, followed by caramel, bread, and biscuit along with some hop bitterness but no hop taste to be found. A rather average beer.

This had the Nut Brown label from the sampler pack. Amber color with a thick khaki colored head. Nose of wet grains and table sugar. Sweet beer with lots of malt syrup and white sugar, some roast grains, a few earthy notes and faint smoke in the finish. Not a very interesting beer.

Bottle is labeled Nut Brown Ale. Pours a clear amber body with a tall ecru head. Aroma of citrusy hops and caramel. A bit of nuttiness as it warms. Taste is caramel, toffee, toasted almonds, and a citrusy hop bitterness. Solid drinker but more of an amber than a brown.
