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 in Plano, Texas.

The beer pours a light brown color with an off-white head. The aroma has a lot of cocoa and a little bit of toffee mixed in. The flavor is more of the same, with some nice toffee and light cocoa notes. The beer is very dry overall. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. One of the best year-round beers from BJ's.

This beer was poured a dark brown with a slight hint of red, the head was a slightly tan white that did not last long at all. There was a minimal amount of lacing. The aroma of this beer was fairly week, but there were hints of chocolate and toasted malt.

The taste was a typical brown ale flavor, similar to Newcastle. The were signs of chocolate and malt, and a slight hint of hops though not very much. The mouthfeel was ok with the CO2 being just right, but the beer seemed a little thin or watery.

All in all not a bad beer, but not my first choice from a place that I have had some really good beers.

Had this on tap at the El Paso, TX location.

A: Served a mahogany color with a tan head that faded to decent lacing.

S: Aroma of roasted malt and nutty with a hint of chocolate sweetness.

T: Taste was a mixture of roasted malt and nuts with a mild chocolate sweetness and touch of bitterness and a fairly dry finish.

F: Medium body, smooth and creamy. Has a nice balance.

D: Another nice beer from BJ's. this brew went well with my pizza. Worth a try.

Sampled this on 4/23/08. Dark brown colored with a decent tan head and some lacing on the glass. The beer is sugary sweet tasting with some malts and a touch of bitter hops. Pretty good brown ale but it's just a little too sweet and sugary for my liking.

Perhaps my favorite beer yet at BJs. Pours a dark brown to maroon with a lasting tan head. Smell is very nutty, and toasty malt. Taste is similar and nutty with a hint of hops. A bit watery but not as much as some others. Creamy, easy drinking and simple, but a nice brown ale overall.

Browned, with amber and orange highlighting in the TV-lit bar. Head is weak, mere wisps of lightly tanned bubbles.

Aromatic, with toasted grains, nuts and hops are coming out of the glass freely. Slight soapiness as well.

The flavor is fairly hoppy while maintaining balance. Very light body, so the hops shine. Slightly medicinal, but fruity. Crisp finish. Biscuity malts, everything is looking for drinkability.

Well-attenuated for a brown ale, holds up throughout the glass. If you like the style, this will get your attention with its hopping. If you like the style and American fruity hops, you'll love this.
