Originally brewed using the Yorkshire square system of fermentation, the nut brown ale calls the North of England home. A hint of hazelnut, a dash of rich caramel and a sprinkle of chocolate malt all intertwine with the flowery bouquet of Willamette hops to produce a round-bodied ale worthy of its homeland. Take a leaf out of our buddy Cyril the red squirrel’s book, and enjoy a Dundee Nut Brown Ale in your own drey. (Drey = a squirrel’s nest. See, you learned something too.)

"i proved i was a sucker for this type of beer with the Leinenkugel Fireside Nut brown, but this one didn’t quite do it for me. Not bad. The carmel nutty sweetness was pleasant enough, but the beer was juuuust a bit on the thin and boring side with not a lot else going on."

Bottle (trade with Patrickctenchi for a Dark Lord - oh, he gave me 2 KBS too). Chocolate and cola malt aroma. Chestnut brown with small head. Slightly sweet chocolate toffee malt and lightly bitter herbal hops. Not bad.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2013
12oz bottle, from my local Kroger. Clear brown / red color. pours with a 1-finger off-white head. Kinda bubbly, but leaves good spray of lace. Stronger, pronounced carbonation, though smooth overall. No stickiness in the finish. Sweet taste overall, light bitter in the finish. Nutty, toasty flavor. Caramel malts, little chocolate. Very faint hops. Mostly just kind of a plain, watered down, lightly dusty flavor... Not a terrible brown ale, but not really interesting.

PorterPounder (7833) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz bottle - part of their craft variety pak. Pours a dark tea-colored brown with an initial slight off-white head that fades quickly. Slightly sweet aroma with some nutty accents and a hint of chocolate. Flavor is leaning to the sweet side with some caramel, some sweet nuttiness, and a touch of chocolate. Mouthfeel could stand to be a tad thicker, but not a major detractor.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7634) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel-brown color with a huge fluffy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was very faint but semi sweet and tangy with a faint vegetal presence. The flavor was tangy, malty and a touch vegetal with a sour caramel element. Medium length tangy caramel finish. Light to medium body. Blah.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2012
Bottled. Poured crystal-clear medium amber with a short, dense off-white head. The aroma picked up nutty notes, honey, and redder fruits.. sweet overall, and definitely pleasant. The flavor was on the sweet side, with molasses and vanilla over nutty malts.. dry on the edges, but not-so-much hop driven. Light-bodied with high, creamy carbonation.. smooth, somewhat buttery feel.. very drinkable.
