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.

Pint from BJs in San Bernardino

Pour was a deep brown color with a thick vanilla colored head

Smell was purely nuts and malt, good balance of roast and sweetness

Taste was amazig and smooth, went great with cajun chicken and bacon pizza

Favorite brew from these guys and will probably get it every time I go back there

This beer sits a pretty, brown-amber color in my glass, it is topped with a wispy, light brown head. The aroma is malty with notes of toasted malt, toasted nuts, and caramel. The taste is lightly sweet with caramel notes up front, but then moves to a solid hoppy bitterness. This beer is quite light and palate cleansing, though it has solid flavors with a clean crisp bitterness that is the most noticeable feature of the finish. There is a nice nuttiness here that is from lightly toasted malts, there is a bit of a fresh from the oven biscuit topped by honey type thing going on here as well. There is a nice fruitiness here as well with notes of cherry being prominent. This is a solid Nut-Brown that has a nice, added hoppiness to it. This beer is quite well made and the flavors begin to meld a bit more, allowing the beer to really sit on the palate as this beer warms up.

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.

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.

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.

Served on tap in non-frosted pint glass.

This brown ale was very dark, almost black and opaque with a 1/4 inch tan head.

Stong malty aroma with some fresh hop odor.

The ale had a strong malty backbone with hints of molasses and a noticeable licorice taste. This was quite unlike most brown ales I have tasted, both American and British. Dispite the sweetness, the ale never becomes cloying because of the hop presence.

This was a medium bodied ale that left an after taste of licorice and malts on the tongue.

This was far from my favorite interpretation of an ale style I rarely drink. If I am in the mood, I prefer the style of Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale. I had one pint and that was enough. Certainly worth trying, If this is one of your favorite styles.
