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.

If you’re looking for a better Newcastle here your wish is a pipe-dream. Save your money and get a Newcastle. Nice deep brown color with little head. Smells and tastes kind of like a wood cask. Just kinda gross. I don’t know what people like about these samuel smith craps

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2005 Dark brown with a medium off-white head. Balanced aroma and flavor, with some nice malt characteristics. Noticeable yeast in the aroma.

Cola brown slighty foamy head. Nice hops and strong on bitter malts. Cola mouthfeel while still remaining smooth with no aftertaste. Decent

1/2 liter clear bottle. poured a reddish chestnut brown with a rocky 2 finger cap that laces well. moderate carbonation. Hints of caramel and nuts in the aroma. Nice mix of malts sweet caramel, some roasted tones...hops tamed back (as should be) in this brown...finishes mild ...nothing unique here...this is the second Sam Smith’s ale that disappointed in expectation....maybe a standard for the style but there are better domestic browns with better character..no need to go back here at the import price.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2004
BOttle- Pours a dark brown body with some red accents. Head is small, foamy and white. Aroma is nutty, malty, and perhaps meaty. Taste is dry, nutty, and slight alcohol. Caramel accents are present as well. Smooth, dry finish, with nice lingering aftertaste of nuts and molasses. Very nice.

biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2004
Clear reddish brown with a wispy white head. Aroma of hazelnut and caramel. Flavor that matches the aroma with some tartness perhaps some vanilla and woody tones. Good mouth feel and body. Little in the way of hops. Smooth finish with nothing to complain about.

3.8
Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Deep Red. Moderately aromatic, fruity and fresh, with a strong fragrance of hazelnut along with a hint of caramel and fruit. Taste begins with a note of browned red apple. Immediate mid-palate flavors of caramel take place followed by a long and satisfying finish with notes of hazelnut and vanilla. A wonderful tasting brew and a pinnacle for its style.
