look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3
A: A little paler than what I would call a prototypical brown ale, with some reddish hues. Nice tan head that sticks a bit.
S: bready, a little bit of choco/caramel maltiness.
T: Nothing stands out but there is a muddled concoction of bread, dark malt, light hop....
M: Fizzy, lively, watery
D: If you want the look of a brown ale without quite so much heft, and the nuttiness of a typical brown ale is not desired or needed, one could drink a bunch of these 4.8% beers. Keep them cold as once this one warms up it loses all of it's already thin appeal.
I find this beer to be vastly overrated. I think nut brown is referring to the color and not the taste - shame. It lacks the rich smoothness that i expect from a brown ale. It is not terrible - obviously a lot of you like it, based on reviews but I find it thin and watery and lacking inspiration.
For the record - I am not 100% certain that I understand what is meant by "average" here. For a brown ale is that Newcastle? Sam Smith? Downtown brown? or is this average in overall beers?

22 oz bottle, 2014 vintage, served in a wine glass.
Pours with a very durable tan head that leaves excetional lacing. The body is very dark red-brown, clear but almost opaque.
Aroma: the weak point. Nutty malts with some faint off odors.
Flavor: Moderate strength nutty flavor with dark grains and a impression of dark bread. Good, lingering malty aftertaste.
O: a decent nut brown but the weakest offering I've had from this fine brewery.

Appearance is brown with copper edges and a finger of fluffy beige head that stuck around for eternity and left thick lacing behind. The nose is nutty and bready. The flavor follows the nose but it is not as bold as the very best beers of this style. The body is not quite hearty but not thin either. The finish was very mildly dry and bitter.
