Notes/Commercial Description:
This velvety soft ale has a stubbornly loyal following. Rich dark malts are layered in a seamless manner. Fine tuning with a blend of bittering, aroma, and flavour hops produce an amazingly smooth finish and a lingering taste. This is a full bodied ale with a rich and gentle flavour.

Poured from a 355ml can into a tulip, can courtesy of IllNate. Thanks dude.

Appears a deep chestnut brown in my tulip with some ruby red highlights at the edges, with two fingers of creamy off-white (almost tan) head. Smells of chocolate, licorice, dark roasty malts and a touch of coffee potentially. Roasty and chocolately up front, followed by some a touch of caramel with maybe a hint of smoke. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy with some medium body to it. Nice drinkability, a quality beer here!

Poured from a can into an English pint glass. Part of a mixed 6-pack. A dark reddish brown brew with three fingers or so of beige head. Aroma is nutty and rich, pecans and hazelnuts, along with an instant coffee roastedness, chocolate brownie, caramel, and orange oil. Sweet but not cloyingly so. Palate features all these elements as well, butterscotch, nuts, pancake syrup, and a hint of molasses. Classic English brown flavors. Semi-chewy body with a smooth mouthfeel, fairly creamy with relatively low carbonation. Finish remains nutty and sweet but some earthy hops do make their presence known. Not a superlative brown ale but does hit all the right keys and strikes a solid balance between nutty, roasted, and sweet components. Maybe a tad sweeter than average. Cannery does a decent job. Drinkable yet flavorful brews with few rough edges.

A nice brown ale. I am new to beer and am just beginning to branch out past the basics so at this point I don't know enough to give this a proper review. I did enjoy this beer. I liked the colour and aroma and found that it had a pleasant sweet flavour.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- Pours a dark mahogany brown with a finger width of creamy bubbly head.

Smell- hazelnuts, almonds, toasted malts, cocoa

Taste- The hazelnut and toasted malts come upfront followed by cocoa and almond.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly sticky finish.

Overall- A pleasant nut brown by Cannery. There are good hazelnut flavour but it is a little one noted. Otherwise, great toasty flavours in this beer.

Cannery Brewings "Naramata Nut(english)Brown Ale"@5.5% in a 650ml bottle served cold into a stein
A-poured a deep brown with amber hints , with a big beige head that was slow to dissipate
S-roasted nuts with hints of chocolate very little hops presence allowing for a earthy smell
T-roasted malts and nuts , not much in the way of hops but the balance is still there with a slight bitter & very dry finish
MF-body is a bit thin
Ov-just an average brew , bit dissapointing , don't know what the fuss was all about
cheers LampertLand

This beer pours a very dark ruby colour with a nice finger of creamy tan head. Looks delicious.

The aroma is mostly rich toasty malt with some faint caramel.

This is quite a bit less sweet than other nut brown ales I've had. It has a lot of roasty character that is complimented by some hop bitterness. There isn't as much nutty character as I would have liked. Some sweet/molasses flavours come through in the finish. It reminds me a lot of Guinness to be honest... maybe I just haven't had a Guinness in a while.

Overall, this is an alright beer. It has a bit too much bitterness for my tastes.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pitch black apperance that reminds me of Coke with small brownish head that quickly disappears but leaves decent retention. Smell consists of caramel and nuts with a hint of roasted malt.

Taste is suprisingly light, but consists of caramel, bread, nuts and a hint of toffee. Has almost a coffee taste to it as well. Light bodied with low carbonation. Aftertaste is bitter and dry.

This is definitely an english-style ale, looks alot stronger then it is. Has a large mixture of tastes to it but clean and refreshing. Worth a try, I hope you can get this on tap somewhere.
