look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A: beautiful cinnamon brown. Highly carbonated. Very thick and fluffy looking lacing

Sm: very weak nut smell at first, but upon a second sniff I get a lot of caramel roasted pecans

Tst: toasted malts, very clean and refreshing, pecan and walnut aftertaste lingers pleasantly

M: Leaves a very smooth almost greasy afterfeel. I want it to be a little thicker and less watery

O: Pretty dang good. A good late summer and fall beer, I had it a little too early in the summer.

Serving type: bottle

Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale was poured into a pint glass from the bottle. I have been meaning to try this one for a while, so I was looking forward to the experience. The ale was a dark, murky brown with a generous head of approximately 3/4 of an inch. The aroma spoke volumes of the maltiness of this beer while still giving hints of sour to come. In the initial taste, I noticed the malts with a sour taste in the front. The backbone of the taste was a sweet candy-like flavor that reminded me of Twizzlers licorice. The promised nuttiness dances amid the tastes, giving it a well-rounded experience. In the aftertaste, the sour of this brown ale stands alone. It is a pleasant sour that sticks to the roof of the mouth and allows the flavor to linger. I believe the ale was thinner than I would have expected, but this was not a big mark against the beer. Overall, this is a flavorful brown that is a standard bearer for the style.
