Love this brown ale. Smooth and satisfying the way a brown should be. Try this one it is worth it.

A 22 ounce bomber poured into a Nonic/Imperial pint glass.

Appearance - The color is dark brown with a touch of ruby red. A fine, lumpy tan head. Moderate lacing. Handsome.

Smell - A sweet carmel aroma.

Taste - Sweet, root beer like flavor with a mild toasty finish. The hops are almost non-existent.

Mouth - Mild carbonation. A little thin.

Overall - First, a disclaimer. I'm not a huge fan of Nut Brown Ales. To my pallet, these beers lack character and body. AleSmith's rendition is no different. It's fine for what it is. Now I'm going to go drink a good Bitters.

22 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, deep, dark, mahogany color with two full fingers of oatmeal-colored head that dissolved into a lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Lots of roasted malt and dark bread, with some brown sugar and toffee.

Taste: Roasty, malty, nutty, delicious! Lots of roasted malt up front, imparting notes of freshly baked dark bread like pumpernickel, followed by some brown sugar-like sweetness, and finished with some nicely balanced hops. Absolutely delicious!

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied to slightly chewy. Some good carbonation to slightly tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 5.0%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is one of the best American made versions of an English Nut Brown Ale that I’ve ever had! It’s absolutely delicious!! Fans of brown ales should definitely give it a try. I’m certainly going to get some more of this!!
