English Brown Ale |  5.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Like the rich, dark brews of southern England this traditional ale draws on specialty malts such as chocolate, caramel and black patent. “Nut Brown Ale” is a deliciously flavourful dark beer like those popular in early Nova Scotia.

Thanks goes out to Jer for bringing home the bacon on this one. Body is dark brown, with a caramel coloured head. Aroma is a combination of roasted malt and a sweet earthiness. Taste is suprisingly smokey and earthy as well. Smooth mouthfeel. Somewhat nutty aftertaste. Decent indeed.At toronro spring tasting, 2004.

A well brewed and well balanced example of the British brown ale style. Very attractive pour, a clear dark chocolate brown with impressive white head. Aroma of roasted malted grains and a nutty chocolate tone, with emphasis on hazelnut. Sweet taste has enough bittering hops in the finish not to be cloying. The caramelized malt sweetness fades quickly, leaving a pleasantly lingering dryness.

A beer I'd definitely recommend to any brown ale fan.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance – Pours a dark cola brown with a finger width of bubbly off-white head.

Smell – Nutty aromas (hazelnut), roasted and sweet aromas. This bottle seems to have some skunkiness to it.

Taste – Very nice hazelnut flavour along with caramalts. Again, picking up something skunky (perhaps an off bottle).

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied with light carbonation. Slightly thin.

Overall – Not what I was expecting for a nut brown from Garrison. A bit thrown off by the skunkiness in both smell and taste, kind of a turn off. Wouldn’t make a special trip for
