Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Dogbrick on 11-27-2002

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.

Pours a semi-clear brown color with average head and extra nice lacing. Aroma is very light and hard to pick up any concise elements. Taste is light, with malt, light almond and a considerable amount of sweetness. Overall, a light brown ale with not a lot of bold flavors or components...

I prefer browns less sweet than this one by Bluegrass. It was difficult to detect nuttiness apart from slightly resembling a marzen's character; and although carbonation held, I couldn't keep from wondering what it would be like to find sweetness in the aftertaste, not at the front. Like the M&M standby "melt in your mouth -- not in your hand!" I wanted the sweetness to find me not smack me at the onset practically before I'd raised my hand-held beverage to sip!

This is just a nice brown ale. Color is a murky brown with decent enough head retention. Both the smell and taste are what you'd expect - very mild with caramel malt dominating. Very low bitterness. Smooth on the palate with a very sweet finish. If you're looking for a nice brown ale this one is worth a try.
