Nice nutty aroma, as the name suggests. Flavor is sweet but not overpowering, with a touch of lighter hops. I'm usually not a brown ale guy, but this was pretty good. Samuel Smith delivers again. lemonlovr (190) - Orland Park, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2003
Smells like ammonia. Tastes very strange, almost like it smells. Slightly acidic, bad aftertaste, Color is medium brown. haddon90 (1634) - Newport Beach, California, USA - OCT 2, 2003
Deep brown pour with minimal head. Nice aroma with a hint of malt and fruit. Well balanced flavor with malt and hops. Overall not bad. brownaler (663) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2003
This is suprisingly not watered down for a brown ale. A nice rich flavoring that has a hint of peanut. Good after taste too. UNCCTF (584) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - SEP 26, 2003
Very peanutty aroma and a similar flavor... very balanced between malts and a hoppy, ever-so-slightly bitter finish. Thanks Timdanchanta!

Pours a nice deep brown with a huge tannish head. Aroma of malt with bits of fruit. Some nuts in the flavor, though malt is more apparant. Nice finish to a good brown. brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 22, 2003
Amberish color, foam exploded out of the bottle. Malty aroma with a hint of fruit. Initial taste was slightly sweet then quickly went dry. Nice lace,no real nut taste. Nice beer if the only other choice is Miller or Bud 3fourths (9345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 21, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2015 oxidized toffee / butter malt. medium body, sweet, husky and coarse, sharp in the mouth. oxidation has ruined this beer. Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2005 Medium sized off-white head. Dark amber colour. Malty, very nutty, balancing bitterness, long finish. Nice english ale. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 18, 2003
Color is just like what you see to the left. A nice puffy head with a little less lacing than I like to see. Aroma is not very nutty but the caramel maltiness was there. Flavor was slightly sweet with a slight english hop background. Finishes very smooth and easy, stays in your mouth but easy drinking. This was pretty good, I always like a good samuel smith beer.
