12oz bottle. Yeah, its good. Bright brown color, opaque, stable head. Yeasty aroma. Dark fruits in the beginning taste, the nutty taste is present in the end, a nicely blended combination. Not hoppy at all, medium-dry. Complex.

Nice rich smells of brown bread. Pours a clear mahogany brown with a big buff head that dissipates to a steady mix of tiny and medium sized bubbles. Lots of lacing. Nice round tastes of pumpernickel and pecans with a sweet short finish. Medium carbonation. These guys are in the business of defining british beer categories - very nice brown.

PanMarek (354) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2017
Deep, almost opaque brown pour with beige, dense, persistent foam. Toasty malts in the nose with a little coarseness. Medium body, smooth texture, light fizz and a clean finish. The taste is rich caramel malt with a little grassy touch. A touch of chocolate as it warms up. Rich on the tongue and a good cold weather beer. A benchmark example

Butelka 550ml.Barwa brązowa z refleksami, piana biała, mocna osiadająca na szkle. Aromat orzechowy z karmelem. Smak to słodkie słody karmelowe z orzechami, niska goryczka. Piwo pijalne choć mogłoby być pełniejsze w smaku.

La Nut Brow Ale es una cerveza de un color marrn limpsimo. Su espuma es de color beis, muy sedosa pero a la vez escasa. Con su aroma me ocurre algo curioso. Siempre me ha parecido al olerla una cerveza ms alcohlica de lo que realmente es (un discreto 5%). Adems de ese aroma licoroso, se perciben claramente frutos secos y algo de canela. En boca aparece un malteado deliciosamente suave. Avellanas, almendras, pasas y caramelo. En resumen, un conjunto dulce que da paso en su final a un amargo muy tenue y elegante. El conjunto nos llena perfectamente de sabor y de postre un final seco pero muy rico. Una cerveza que jams pasar de moda.

Taki naprawdę porządny brown ale. Barwa brązowa, aczkolwiek prześwitująca. Piana biała, kremowa, gęsta, bardzo wysoka i trwała. W aromacie orzechy włoskie, nuta toffi, słody karmelowe i nuta czekolady. W smaku słodycz, kremowość, słody karmelowe, a także orzechy, ktre rozciągały się rwnież na ledwie zauważalną goryczkę. W aromacie na dodatek bardzo delikatne estry. Nagazowanie średnie z małym plusem. Lekka wodnistość. Ale oglnie bez większych wad, a z masą zalet. Smaczne.
