Notes/Commercial Description:
Nut Brown Ale has a diverse grain bill which lends this traditional English ale a variety of flavors that coalesce into a remarkably smooth and pleasant drink. Additions of various pale, caramel and dark malts create a smooth, sweet malt profile with hints of roasted nuttiness. Multiple additions of English hops round out the flavors and give this classic beer a true flavor of the Old World.

3.35/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a perfect pint.

2.75 A: Dark amber color. Two fingers of foamy beige head. Retention is below average and just a few wisps of lacing are left.

3.75 S: Toasty with a hefty batch of nuttiness. It's a sweet nuttiness like those nuts with the crispy sugary coating. The last aspect of this beer is like a dog kibble, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Overall it's not bad and I do enjoy the potency.

3.25 T: Again lots of nuttiness and toasted malts. A woody flavor enters the fray. Then there's a strange flavor. It tastes like toffee if all the sugar was removed. I think this is the same aspect of the brew that gives the dog kibble aroma. Anyway, it's not bad, but it could use some refinement.

3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and smooth.

3.25 D: Not the best, but it's tasty enough to recommend giving it a try.

3.51/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle, notched to show a bottle don date of April 2013, served in a snifter.
Hazy dark reddish brown body; small partial head despie a vigouous pour, and most of this is soon gone.
Aroma: about spot on for style, with a nice bit of nutty roasted grains as well as sweet malts and toffee.
Flavor: largely follows the aroma, but is a bit sweeter than expected.
Feel: light body is a bit too thin. Smooth.

O: allowed to warm before serving but not enough; it continued to improve with further warming.
