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.

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.

This is a pretty interesting nut brown. Has some nice character to it, with a bit of a vanilla tone that I find unique. The drawback is that it is a bit too sweet, from my point of view. Still pretty nice though. Frankly, if only a few more things were tweaked on this beer, it'd be smokin;''. For now though, it will remain decent.
