COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BBC Nut Brown Ale has a diverse grain bill which lends this traditional English ale a variety of flavors that coalesce into a remarkably smooth and pleasant drink. Additions of various pale, caramel and dark malts create a smooth, sweet malt profile with hints of roasted nuttiness. Multiple additions of English hops round out the flavors and give this classic beer a true flavor of the Old World.

The aroma was nutty and VERY pleasant. The light brown body supported a thick, tan head. The flavor was an exciting cacophany of nutty goodness.

Here’s my take: creamy, buttery, and surprisingly a mellow nut plavor, on the back palate, there is a lingering and faint amaretto feel. there’s almost a pudding feel to the ale, perhaps caramel. I’ve sampled a few of the BBC brews thus far, and this places second only to the Jefferson’s Reserve Bourbon Barrel Stout. I liken the aroma and back palate flavor to that of some of the He’Brew brews. The head is thick and almost khaki. I definitely recommend this beer, as the BBC definitely has found a winner here. it’s not exceptional, but for BBC it is definitely above average. While the hops are noticable, i still think theat if there were a bit more bitterness and hops complexity to it, i wouldn’t complain, but nonetheless it is a good brew.

sticky, bitter and a little thick. the hops don’t bode well with the rest of what’s going on. uninspiring.

Dark copper pour, low head, some lacing. Sour grainy aroma. Low carb, woody caramel flavor, with a sickingly sweet taste. Some phlegmy in the throat. A bit of nut, and a low sour artificial flavor, somewhat unpleasant, but doesn’t destroy the beer. Decent.

Pours a rich copper with a thick white head. It has a fruity, slightly malty aroma. The taste is of grape nuts/wheat berries and a slightly sweet maltiness. The mouthfeel is pretty watery, which is a little detracting.

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Pours a clear amber color with minimal head. Aroma is very malty with notes of caramel and yeast. Flavor is an initial clean matly bitterness with a minimal flavor finish. Mouthfeel is average carbonation is good. Overall a decent beer.

Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 27, 2007
Bottle. Poured a clear brown color with a small light-brown head. Slight lacing. Malty aroma. Slightly fizzy mouthfeel. Flavor is very nutty with a malty coffee aftertaste. A good beer.

Listed only as Nut Brown Ale, the color was deep ruby but the flavor gave only the barest hint of nuttiness. Perhaps a bit more Victory malt is called for. OK but nothing great.

I enjoy this nut brown. The beer is very flavorful and bold. It is easy to drink, but comes off as fresh and alive.
