Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed to celebrate our first Christmas in 1989. "NBA" is a medium bodied American brown ale, with a light hop aroma, deep rich color and nutty finish. In the U.K. brown ale is generally a bottled product, although some cask-conditioned versions may be found. There are three main types of brown ales: English northern, English southern and American brown ale. Squatters NBA represents the American brown ale style. This style if typically reddish-brown in color, moderately bitter, and the aroma is derived from American hops. Additionally, a nutty, malty caramel sweetness is present. Although maltiness is the dominant flavor and contributes some sweetness, a medium level of bitterness is there to create balance. Pete's Wicked Ale is one of the most well known examples of this style. Before the development of porter, brown ale or a wild ale were combined with a stale beer (waste was not a consideration) and a pale ale and called "threeheads". This beer was consumed mainly by the working class.

On tap at Squatters. Pours a dark brown with hints of amber, color with a thick beige head. The aroma is very hoppy; lots of sweet hop notes, some roasted nuts and malt and a bit of caramel. The taste was also quite nice; again the hops really stood out, some nice strong toasted malts and roasted nuts, also a hint of caramel. Very nice. Like a Pale Ale meets a Nut Brown. Nice.

Pours a clear dark brown color, nice carbonation, huge creamy tan head, tons of lacing throughout the drink. The nose is sweet malty, slightly nutty roasted, and caramel. The taste is malty, with a nice undertone of roasted nuts, nice dry caramel finish. Medium body. Drinkable, a nice nut brown ale.
