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.

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!

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...

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.

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).

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAY 30, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2006 (on bottle)Yeah, what´s with the clear bottles from this brewery? A classic brew this time and a good one too. A lot of hazelnut in the nose and maybe some burnt ones too in there. Small head, dark brown, but clear color. No doubt that this is an impressive taste, for an malts-only beer, but that´s about it. A bit to the bitter side in the ending, but the aftertaste does seem to sweeten half way through the glass.

brewshthereen (316) - Oregon, USA - MAY 27, 2004
This is a tasty brown ale. Chestnut in color with fizzy white head. Toasted malty rich flavor with toffee, and a pleasant nuttiness. Bready mouthfeel. Good after taste. This is impressive coming from a clear bottle. Overall, another fine one sam smith!

A pretty good brown, very nice balance to it. About the same as Newcastle, but not nearly as sweet.

Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - MAY 23, 2004
Bottle: Aroma is malty, nutty, and caramel. Pours a nice amber with a okay off-white head that has decent retention. Quick sweet and nutty taste with a bitter finish. Short lived bitter aftertaste. Could be balanced a little better. Bitter finish really takes away from the initial malt and nut taste. Balance improves significantly as you drink.
