Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Nut Brown Ale starts out very smooth, like an English-style Brown Ale. The use of Chocolate Malt, Munich Malt, and Hallartau Hops give this beer a crisp, nutty finish. Peak Nut Brown is a delectable beer loaded with complex, differentiated flavors that don’t overwhelm the palate, making it a perfect dark beer for food pairing.

This brown ale is actually more of an orange-red-brown and completely clear. The head is a bubbly tan one that rises to one finger for a brief time, falling quickly and leaving just some foam at the edges that drop a bit of spotting.
It starts dry and enforces it with toast even as some caramel comes in. Toast is the main element, with a bit of nut, a fruity note, and more dryness as it goes and some leafy and herbal hops bitterness comes out. Nut comes out most strongly in the late part of the finish with herb.
It's crisp all the way and moderately smooth in a dry medium body. It thins a little into the finish.

Best Enjoyed Before July 2014

A: Pours a mahogany color with a fingers worth of head that fades down to a thin cap

S: A nice, nutty maltiness is the stand out, with a hint of sweetness and some caramel

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a good dose of maltiness, which provides some caramel, chocolate, and nutty notes. Lightly sweet. Finishes with a hint of bitterness and house yeast

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth

O: An easy-drinking English brown with a nice signature nuttiness. Good for a small session
