COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Brown Ale style originated in the pubs of England, where beer drinkers desired a beer that was both flavorful and complex, but at the same time mild enough to be a session beer. The Santa Fe Brewing Company's interpretation of this style uses a combination of high mash temperature, hard water, and low-alpha acid hops to produce a product that is both true to the style and distinctly Santa Fe. Brewing jargon aside, Santa Fe Nut Brown Ale is an easy-drinking beer, mild, smooth, and always a favorite. Try a keg at your next party! Malts: 2-row pale, 30-37 l. Carastan, Chocolate Hops: Willamette

A good session nut brown, could be a good step up for a not so crafty craft drinker. not a whole lot going on with the flavor but good brown ale you can drink a few of, for me thats a plus.

Verrrrry chain brewpub like with this one... Aroma is stale caramel and nuts, as is the taste... Medium carb. Nothing complex or distinguishing about it.

12 oz bottle. (Susan’s Fine Wine & Spirits) Santa Fe, NM.
Dark mahogany color with a tiny off-white head. Mild sweet brown sugary malty aroma. The flavor is dry wood, peanut skins, brown sugar and sweet malt. The kind of brown ale I don’t like.

nazzty (1378) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2016
Starts of well with a nutty aroma but the taste is unbalanced and the hops can’t really enhance the weak body. I had higher expectations.

Longneck. Clean label. Aroma is at first a bit yeasty and sweaty from the bottle. From the glass, it’s malt, cereal and lagery. Light molasses and straw notes, alt-like, lightly sweet, lightly bittered. Medium body. Cherry pits and straw on the backend. Not going to set the world on fire, but very drinkable and sessionable. Thanks to PorterPounder.

Amarillo, Tx - Party Stop Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Pours a medium brown with a quickly fading light off-white head. Aroma is pleasant, slight nuttiness, a hint of chocolate. Flavor has some slight nutty accents, a touch of molasses, some brown sugar. Mouthfeel is thick enough.
