Mahogany hued body; one-finger thick head; creamy. Nut and tree bark aroma. Toasted, slightly charred flavor: tannins and bitterness; tree nuts. Medium-heavy body; mild sugary body.

Rich and flavorable, roasty and subtly sweet but tempered with a mild bitterness. A fine nut brown ale...

Really not much going on here. Certainly drinkable and not offensive by any means, its flavors were subtle and did not stand out as much as I would have liked.

A - Dark brown, hazy body. Huge fat white head, fading slowly. Minor lacing.

S - Mild caramel, a bit of sour grain, a hint of limestone.

T - Very nice malt open, toffee and dark bread, a moderately dry close, with mild hop spice and bitterness.

M - A touch sticky in the open, drying in the close, to a clean end.

O - A nicely executed brown, balanced and tasty.

Appearance: Nut brown with deep ruby reds underneath. About a half inch head with beautiful lacing as you enjoy the beer. Head is light brown in color with a nutty maple smell. Mouthfeel is watery and too hazel nutty for my liking. Overall, an ok beer but would go out of my way to find it!

The Nut Brown is decent....but had no head and no lace what so ever.....nevertheless it poured a clear deep amber. The scent carried hints of maple, nut and some espresso. The taste was too far off from the scent. The mouthfeel was medium in body with so so carbonation. Overall its ok.....would like more head! But who wouldn't????

Nut Brown Ale brewed by Mt. Carmel Brewing Company, with an ABV of 6.00% This brew pours out a nice brown color, with a nice off white head. I like the color of this brew. The smell is rich with flavors , and sweetness. You also pick up on roasted grains ,malts, and nuts, in the smell of this brew. Now for the taste it bold with flavors, you pick up roasted malts and nuts. There is a lot going on in Nut Brown Ale. I like the taste of this brew\, it is really smooth , you can not pick up on the 6.0% in this brew. The mouthfeel of Nut Brown Ale, is bold, rich and smooth. This brew has a nice balance to it, there is nothing overpoweing about this brew. Overall I'm giving Nut Brown Ale a 4.25 out of 5. I would buy this brew again. Mt.

Nut Brown Ale - Mt. Carmel Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this beer's head is two fingers thick and eggshell brown with lateral lacing, and a deep brown body.

I smell very nicely roasted malts, along with a bit the maple the brewer's note mentions.

Tastes like a solid balance of the bolder grains and malts mentioned above,along with some caramel and more maple. This would really hit the spot in the fall.

Mouthfeel here is clean and smooth.

I'll give Nut Brown Ale - Mt. Carmel Brewing Company a 4.5.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a pint glass

It pours copper in color with some amber highlights. It is capped with three inches of tan head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass.

It has a nutty, earthy aroma highlighted by the maple sweetness.

The taste is just like you would want a nut brown to be. The sweetness from the maple compliments the nuttiness of the beer creating a wonderful flavor experience.

Medium to full mouthfeel

This is a good representation of an English nut brown ale. It is not fancy. It is just well done.
