Notes/Commercial Description:
The Brown Ale style originated in the pubs of England, where beer drinkers desired a beer that was both flavorful and complex, but at the same time mild enough to be a session beer. The Santa Fe Brewing Company's interpretation of this style uses a combination of high mash temperature, hard water, and low-alpha acid hops to produce a product that is both true to the style and distinctly Santa Fe. Brewing jargon aside, Santa Fe Nut Brown Ale is an easy-drinking beer, mild, smooth, and always a favorite.

A: When held up to a bright light, the beer is crystal clear garnet red in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation, but it is very dark brown when viewed from afar. The beer poured with a short light tan head that quickly died down, leaving a small patch of bubbles in the center and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of nutty malts are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste starts out with lots of nutty flavors and has notes of mineral water that linger through the finish. No sweetness is perceptible.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite malty but is easy to drink because it doesn't have that heavy of a mouthfeel.

This beer has a lovely reddish-brown color to it. There wasn't much head on the pour and it didn't stick around too long. There's a nice toffee and roasted malt smell to this beer. There's a good toffee/nut flavor initially, after you let it sit for a minute, you get a bit of sweetness out of it. The carbonation is nice on this beer, with a good amount of bubbles lasting throughout; something enjoyable in the mouth.
