Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale
Samuel Smith Old Brewery
This nut brown pours out a brilliant transparent amber color. Fiery highlights of red and orange appear when the glass is held to the light. A frothy tan head emerges with excellent retention that fades to a thin layer of foam. Spotty traces of lace appear on the glass.
A very deep, sweet, warm, malt aroma fills the fragrance of this beer. Hints of toffee add to a finishing scent of yeasty bread.
An odd combination of roasted nuts and alcohol assault the palette immediately. The alcohol flavor quickly fades and cleans up to a wet, watery, nutty finish. Slight suggestions of sour yeast and citrus hop flavors are also present in the finish. The wet finish transitions to a rather dry aftertaste. The aftertaste is quite subtle, but there is some bitterness. It tastes a little like hops and little like roasted nuts with caramel.
This nut brown has a medium to light body with noticeable carbonation. The beer foams nicely, but the carbonation does not distract from the taste.
This beer is quite drinkable. The subtle, and not overwhelming, smells and flavors make this beer very easy to drink. The dry aftertaste makes it inviting to take another gulp. There isn't anything outlandish or over-the-top about this brew. It is very solid and delightful.
