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. I’m glad I finally found an un-skunked bottle of this beer. A little oxidized, but not bad. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Dark Coloring. Slightly Roasted Flavor. Not a bad brown ale at all. Not overly nutty like some tend to get. Imbockinsxtx (82) - Big Bend (Benavides, TX), Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2004
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! hopdog (12382) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2004
Clear reddish-brown with a huge tan head. Sweet roasted, nutty, malt aroma. Roasted, nutty taste. Sweet to start with a light bitter aftertaste. Samuel Smith’s has always been one of my favorite brewing companies (we go back a long way) and the Nut Brown is on of my favorite beers brewed by them.

Dark red/brown, ok head. Aroma from nuts and cherry. Flavor is creamy and nutty with a mild and pleasant finish. A very good beer. osmg95 (44) - Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Not much bad to say about this beer. It say’s drink me as all the Sam Smith’s do. Very little hoppy taste. Malty and yummy. I like this beer a bit warmer then recommended. Very light and easy on the palate...watery finish. No lingering aftertaste. Only negative is that I just drank my last one! bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - JUN 3, 2004
bottled: ive had this several times. last week at a crowded bar. i could see him hiding throught the glass dooor of the fridge it was way in the back, probably been there for years. ya know this is a bud crowd. but i refreshed myself with this old classic. may have been a little off due to age?? some tin characteristics and hazelnuts. malt sweet ...little to no hop character this time. much better then that newcastle crap. its time to darken the bottles samuel... rlgk (18847) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2004 Amber, red/brown, with a nice offwhite head. Has a nice aroma from nuts, malts and some toffee. Flavor is hoppy and from citrus and then turns malty. Rib Eye (148) - USA - JUN 1, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2005 A superb ale. Goes down easy with a chewy nutty and malty taste. Better than any other nut brown I’ve tried. I wish it wasn’t so expensive. (And with a beer of this quality, Samuel Smith’s should really opt for the brown bottles).
