Availability: Spring

Notes/Commercial Description:
Ah, Spring…the season that keeps us guessing. Will it rain, or will the sun be out? Do I take advantage of the last days of skiing, or the first days of hiking? Do I put on jeans, or dare break out the shorts? The season comes with enough uncertainty, so Redhook gives you something you can always count on…our Nut Brown Ale. This medium dark beer is layered with rich malty aromas and flavors of chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, and a hint of vanilla. Although it may be dark in color, it’s refreshingly smooth and highly sessionable. Nut Brown is the perfect beer for spring.

Pours a golden brown color with a khaki colored airy head that quickly disipates into a light ring.

The aroma is of a sweet bready malt, with hints of raisin. Noticable toffee notes and a hint of chocolate. A little sweet for my liking.

Taste is similar. Big bready flavor, honey and toffee notes provide sweet flavors. The raisin presence is still there and is a bit odd for a brown ale. Some tea and lemony notes are present which is typical for the style. A light grassy and apricot hop flavor.

The feel is light with fizzy carbonation, sits nicely on the palate. Mainly sweet on the palate but does finish quite dry with a light grassy bitterness.

Pretty standard english brown. A bit on the sweet side would prefer some more earthy characteristics.

Pours a clear copper with no head or lace. The aroma is caramel with hints of nuts and wood. The flavor is caramel and nutty with root beer barrel candy flavor in the finish. There's also a mild hop bite at the front that fades as it warms. It's mouthfeel is light and a bit watery. Redhook Nut Brown is a decent beer, recommended.

Look is a clead red-amber with almost no head. Smells like a red ale: dry leaves, toffee, hint of roasted nut. Taste is light, nutty, floral, very easy to drink, with an earthy graininess.

Decent brown at a decent price. wouldn't mind tipping a few back in the olleee man cave, amirite guys??? *elbow poke*elbow poke*

12oz bottle. Pours a nutty medium brown color with no head. Zero lacing. Aromas of earth, brown sugar, malts, and chocolate. Taste is a sweet caramel malt flavor up front with some earth and hints of chocolate. Liight, thin mouthfeel. Caramel malt aftertaste. Not much elsee to say about this one. Overall, nothing special and no need to have it again.
