Nutty, browny. Not my favorite style of beer, so I can't really judge it. Very rich and powerful. Hard to finish the whole bottle.

A superp beer alon with spicy Thai-food. Has a brownish color and a palate of hazelnuts. A short lasting head, but a long creamy finish.

Comes in the (oh no) clear Sam Smith Bottle..same simple label. Well this certainly looks like a great beernice dark walnut brown with a largish off white creamy head..it went down fast bit laceing was good. Smell thank goodness is nice and fresh..malty and nutty..simple yet well done. MM this is a delicious beer..low alcohol yet the taste is luxuriant..nice and creamy..with a full malt profile..finishes with nice nuttiness( pecan..maybe black walnut)..nice semi bitter aftertatse. Very nice on the tongue..creamy. an exceptionally drinkable Nut Brown..wonderful stuff..how do the English put so much flavour into such medium strength beers?

Cartoonkhaki (1257) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2003
Rich amber hue. Large pillowy light brown head. Slight roasted, earthy aroma with hints of apple which also lightly translates into the flavour. Roasted flavour. Dry finish ... decent slight creamy palate.

Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Brown colour, slightly translucent (sp?) Very strong lasting head. Aroma is light, slightly sweet with a veritable malt presence. Taste is sweet, malty, little or no hop bitterness, with a definite nut taste. Very roasty and warm - good on a cold fall / winters day. Nice session beer.

This offering from Seldom Seen Smith is true to its' name: this beer is both brown and nutty. More brown than nutty, actually, but the light-ish medium body and smooth malty goodness make me want to sell the ranch, move to Kansas, and have a nice cold Schultheiss out on the porch with Old Granddad. This one definitely slaps Lieutenant Calley right on the palm of his face. Just what your mother ordered.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2004 Cleary orange brown with ruby highlights and a medium diminishing frothy light brown head. Aroma of dried apple, bread, hazelnut, caramel and plum. Medium watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Flavor of walnut, hazelnut, dried apple, toasted bread and plum with a hint of spice. Very refreshing, could be a decent session beer. Good.

It isn't common that my wife and I disagree so notably about a beer. From her first gulp she said it was "foul" with an "aroma and flavor like that of novicaine at the dentist". I, on the other hand, enjoyed the obviously nutty aroma, which becomes like a bowl of caramel candies as it warms, and a flavor that is mildly sweet, deeply caramel-tinged, and with hints of wood, nuts, and chocolate. The appearance is good: brown like a piece of furniture, with cola-like carbonation on my glass (an English pint glass)(this being a negative quality actually), and an irregular, large head that clings to to the glass as it dissipates moderately quickly. The palate makes this reasonably drinkable, with carbonation keeping life in a passably smooth/creamy body. Not the greatest beer in the world, but a good brown ale, despite the risks you take with a clear glass bottle (fortunately mine showed no sign of problems).

Lager-like hoppy aroma (that is not a compliment) with a fine color of polished wood. Smooth and slightly creamy, though underwhelming flavor and finish.
