COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed at Samuel Smith’s small, traditional British brewery with well water (the original well sunk in 1758 is still in use), best barley malt, roasted barley, yeast and aromatic hops. Nut Brown Ale is relatively dry with a rich amber-brown colour and nutty flavour derived exclusively from small amounts of dark malt. Brown ales are a specialty of northern England. Fermented in ’stone Yorkshire squares’.

BeardedAvenger (1478) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2018
Bottle at Princess Louise, Holborn. Sliglty sickly caramel floral aroma. Red tinged chestnut. Thick off-white head. Swet and sour with a bitter edge. Tinned fruit and caramel. Light bodied. Soft mouthfeel abetted by the carbonation. OK, better than a boring bitter.

Аромат карамели с оттенками патоки. Цвет темно янтарный. Пена небольшая но постоянная, которая преследует пиво даже после полного употребления. Вкус неожиданно солодовый. Также ощущается карамель и патока, некое присутствие меда. Послевкусие мягкое сладко-карамельное. Пиво очень питкое и водянистое. Ему явно не хватает немного яркости во вкусе, но даже без этого Самуэль Смитс снова держит высокую солидную планку.

tricksta_p (5721) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 30, 2018
Bottle from Stanislaus Brewskovitch, Zwolle. Aroma is malt, caramel, toffee, nuts, and a hint of cocoa. Flavour is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium. Nothing spectacular, but pretty decent Brown Ale.

cmacklin (1490) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 24, 2018
550ml bottle. Pours a clear amber-brown with a medium, creamy, long lasting, beige head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of toasted malt, bread, caramel and nuts. Sweet flavour of toasted malt, biscuit, toffee, caramel, molasses and walnut with a dry, bitter hop finish. Medium body with a creamy, smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Very nice, easy drinking.

MNAle (262) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 6, 2018
Reviewed on March 4, 2018. Date code SF20Q1 (June 20, 2017), so it is a bit old. But, if the brewer is satisfied to have beer this old for sale, it is fair game to review it, IMO. Aroma of fruit, caramel, some nutty aroma in there as well. Slightly hazy to clear reddish brown with a tall tan-to off-white thick creamy head. Sweetish caramel intitially in the taste, with fruit and toast. Feel is thin, creamy and smooth. The middle begins to get bitter, with the bitterness intensifying into the finish. As the beer warms, the aftertaste becomes more unpleasant. This beer no doubt suffers from its age, but as it stands, it is not particularly outstanding. OK at best. PS: I reviewed this side-by-side with the Ale Asylum Madtown Nutbrown. Not as good as the Ale Asylum. I need to find a fresher Sam Smith brown.

From bottle at Cardinal with HDI 14.02.18. Clear dark copper. Beige head and lacing. Aroma and taste of caramelized malt, dried berries and moderate hop bitterness. Good quaffability!

Moderate biscuity aroma and high malty-sweet caramel flavor with robust toastiness that yields gracefully to a moderately dry finish.... Medium bodied beer with moderately-high carbonation which adds to an initial body and bloom to the mouthfeel. First English Brown Ale I've had - the bar has been set high, I think.

Grumbo (4965) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2018
Bottle at The Princess Louise, Holborn. Pours clear pale to mid brown with a lasting slightly creamy off-white head. Aroma of toffee, nut, roasted malt and dried fruits. Medium sweetness, light to moderate bitterness. Medium body, slight oily texture, average carbonation. Enjoyable.

metalspice (1237) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - JAN 22, 2018
Brun med fint skum. Herlig blanding av nøtter og flytende karamellsaus i duft og smak. Smooth, litt tykk munnfølels.
