Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Nutty Brewnette is an American-style brown ale. A blend of four different dark malts contributes to a flavor profile that is sweet with “nutty” notes. A healthy dose of hops makes this beer hoppier and more balanced than most English brown ales.

On tap at BJ's in Valencia, CA.

Pours a clear dark crimson brown with a khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass all the way to the finish. Smell is of toasted malt and some nice nutty aromas. Taste is of the toasted malt and nut flavors with a caramel sweetness and alcohol kick in the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good brown ale but the alcohol kick at the end of each sip is slightly harsh.

Dark with a short head, always served in a pint.

Malty aroma with hints of coffee and bread crusts.

Nice warm body - more bread and coffee with sweeter toffee notes.

Thin bodied. Overall a very solid American Brown. No frills or adjuncts, just a swell benchmark for the style.

Light brown, small ring of light tan head to it, not much there, not much to leave lace or any retention. Usual English malt aroma, lightly sweet, nothing too impactful.

Hey, wait, there's a good flavor, good hop presence yet still maintaining a smooth drinking, relatively low bitterness drinking experience, yet dry and almost a fringe of chalky cocao powder to the mouthfeel. Already, this puts it in an upper echelon of brown ale flavor for me. Great roast character, instead of getting a thin bland brown, you get something more akin to a sessionable American porter with plenty of nutty, toffee and caramel flavor to keep it rather robust.

Good, would recommend to my buddy who really likes Lost Coast's downtown brown.
