4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from State Line. Pours hazy deep copper with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is huge Wheaties dipped in honey almonds and walnuts. Flavor is nuttier than Charles Manson, with a huge interlayered amount of nuts, including almond, walnut, hazelnut, pecan, brazil nut, plus a heavy corn flakey flavor. This one has a taste profile that is somewhat similar to Celebrator, only this one is nuttier and doesn;t have the boldness or heft of palate of Celebrator. If I could find a case of this, I’d buy it. I’d stock this year round if I could. It’s that damned good.

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.

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!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2008 Under the Nut Brown label. Clear medium brown with an average head. Light toffee aroma. Toasty, yet sweet, flavor ... hint of caramel, but not very much. Nuttines is there as well. Nice plaseant, if light, brown ale. (#2637 - 1/6/07)

Bottle courtesy of dkachur. Pours copper with a nice rocky white head. Smells of tea, caramel, dry malt. Tastes earthy and sweet with a doughy finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from the tap in Chester, VA. Odd BA says it’s retired but the keg tasted fresh.
Aroma- Malt, caramel and hops.
Appearance- A really nice dark copper color. Had a large off-white head.
Taste- I really enjoyed the flavor. A good mix of malt and fruit.
Palate- A medium to heavy brew with moderate carbonation. Has a dry finish.
Overall- Very nice beer, one of my favorite English Brown Ales.

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.

Good offering from St George. Poured from a bottle. Nice caramel color (preview of things to come). Not the thick head promised in the description. Creamy although no lacing. Slightly bitter on the finish.

Bottle. Clear light brown colour with a little fine head. Nice aroma of caramel, nuts-like and note of malt. Flavour of nuts, caramel and malt. Ends up with a dry finish. Good tasty and malty mouthfeel.
