12oz bottle (Nut Brown Ale). Poured a clear light amber color with a white small head, and no lacing. Aromas of hazelnuts, cocoa, and sweet caramel. The taste is very malty with lots of sweet caramel and a bit of toasted malt flavor and a touch of hops bitterness in the finish. Body is relatively light with a good bit of carbonation.

12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Nut brown ale label. Pours a clear reddish amber color with a medium sized frothy brown head. Good head retention and decent lacing. Malty aroma with nutty notes, a hint of chocolate and citrus and leafy hops. The taste is pale malts, nuts, leafy hops and a bit of a salty note. Thin-medium bodied. Decent, not great. pottygok (548) - Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Aroma: Very malty, with lots of cereal and nuts.
Appearance: Poured from a bottle, but no head what so ever, which was disappointing for a Brown Ale. Hazy amber color.
Taste: Light sweetness, but nothing much.
Palate: Light body with a thin texture, average carbonation.
Overall: It’s drinkable, but I certainly wouldn’t search it out. jeremytoni (3085) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2010
From a bottle poured a brown color with a fair amount of head. Nice light malty flavor with a quick finish. boccefloyd (101) - Bon Air, Virginia, USA - SEP 29, 2010
Nut Brown label. Pours a clear honey color w/ a thin white head that disappears rater quickly. No lacing. Smells biscuity, bready, caramel, with a little roasted malts. Hint of hops but not much. Medium-light body, thin in the finish and balanced in the finish.On the tongue, I get the roasted malts (not big) first, followed by caramel, bread, and biscuit along with some hop bitterness but no hop taste to be found. A rather average beer.

This had the Nut Brown label from the sampler pack. Amber color with a thick khaki colored head. Nose of wet grains and table sugar. Sweet beer with lots of malt syrup and white sugar, some roast grains, a few earthy notes and faint smoke in the finish. Not a very interesting beer. merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Bottle is labeled Nut Brown Ale. Pours a clear amber body with a tall ecru head. Aroma of citrusy hops and caramel. A bit of nuttiness as it warms. Taste is caramel, toffee, toasted almonds, and a citrusy hop bitterness. Solid drinker but more of an amber than a brown. Brewbie (497) - New York, USA - DEC 13, 2009
12oz bottle. amber with a thin head. slight aroma of malts. thin taste of caramel sweetness. little touch of hops in the finish.
kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a watery looking brownish amber body with a minimal wispy brown head. Yucky cooked celery nose, surprise! Can’t even get any nuttiness or malt at all past it. There’s a touch of coffee though. The flavor is watery and weak with some very light grainy and nutty malt. A little hop bitterness but not much. This is just incredibly thin, watery, and boring with light fizzy carbonation. At least the veggies were mostly on the nose, and not in the flavor. Then again, there wasn’t much flavor at all.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle labeled as St. George Nut Brown Ale.
Appearance: Slightly hazy amber with a very small, foamy, white head. The head is gone in a split second.
Aroma: Very nutty with notes of almonds and hazelnuts. Throw in some caramel and a slight touch of chocolate too. No hop prescience to be found.
Taste: Solidly nutty. Light caramel notes, hazelnut, and a light bitterness. This one is fairly straightforward and pretty basic.
Palate: Medium carbonation with a medium-light mouthfeel. Short, nutty finish.
Overall: A pretty run of the mill nut brown that is extra nutty!
Rebuy: Nah. Worth trying, but nothing great.
