Well, this is pretty much the best Nut Brown I have ever had, so judging by style, my score has to reflect that.

Lucky me, this is my second S.S. in a row that hasnt been skunked. Gigantic light brown head that I couldnt wait for to die down, so I started drinking it. Sweet, soft, and malty nose. Just a glimpse of what's to come.

The taste is so smooth & perfect. Truly a world-class professional brew. Bold & complex, but still easy to drink. A very hard balance to achieve, but S.S. has done it. A touch of creaminess and toasty at the end that is splendid.

Extremely drinkable. Possibly addictive...?

Presentation - Poured into Sam Smith's pint glass

Appearance - Dark translucent brown with 1+ finger head with great retention and good sculping and good amount of lacing

Smell - Nuts, nuts, and more nuts. Traces of cinnamon as well

Taste - Nuts and a bit of cinnamon with lots of good spicing

Mouthfeel - Very smooth and well spiced, a lingering nutty aftertaste

Drinkability - Something to drink delicately but can be drank with almost any type of food

Overall - Probably one of the best examples of English Brown Ale, this hits it right out of the park.
