Brewed at Samuel Smiths 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.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [bottle - Great European Beerfest 8, Sharp Edge Tavern - East Liberty, PA] Poured a deep brown color with very little head. Sweet malts mainly in the aroma. Good sweet malty taste with a hint of hazelnut and some cinnamon. Smooth but a little watery.

Brown color with little or no head. The taste has a malty sweetness as the dominating taste pattern. Has some slight spicy or nutty notes. It feels rather thin and watery.

Pours a very dark red color. Has a slight nutty aroma. Flavor is fruity and nutty. This is a much, much , much better brown ale than New Castle. Over all a nice brew.

Very pretty red color, deep. No skunk, even with the clear bottle. Far superior to Newcastle. Very malty, with a very English hop presence. Actually, not my favorite Brown... I have never been incredibly impressed with Sam Smith, maybe its my wanton need for American hops and malts, who knows...

This is a pretty good beer. Very enjoyable drink, as it goes down smooth and flavourful. I have only had it out of the bottle and would love to try it on tap.

Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2004
Slight fruitiness, caramel malt, sherry and wet cardboard in the aroma. Clear red-amber color, decent off-white head. Caramel and hazelnut in the flavor, just a hint of herbal hops, even finish. Medium-full body, pretty smooth. Im glad I finally found an un-skunked bottle of this beer. A little oxidized, but not bad.

Dark Coloring. Slightly Roasted Flavor. Not a bad brown ale at all. Not overly nutty like some tend to get.

This beer has a very dark appearance with an off white rocky head. Pleasant roasty sweet aroma with some alcoholic presence. The mouthfeel is at first watery but flavours galore are apparant. Burnt pie crust, roasted malts, and smoky nuttiness are readily discernable. The brew starts sweet but ends a little bitter. There exists a copious amount of Lacing on the glass. For such a watery conconction and to pull off everything that I have mentioned I am sure is not an easy task. Kudos to Sam Smith and Co. This beer accomplishes a true balance between a hardy beer and a very drinkable potion that can be had again and again and again . Salud!
