Brewed by:
Redhook Ale Brewery
New Hampshire, United States

Style: English Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
Ah, Spring…the season that keeps us guessing. Will it rain, or will the sun be out? Do I take advantage of the last days of skiing, or the first days of hiking? Do I put on jeans, or dare break out the shorts? The season comes with enough uncertainty, so Redhook gives you something you can always count on…our Nut Brown Ale. This medium dark beer is layered with rich malty aromas and flavors of chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, and a hint of vanilla. Although it may be dark in color, it’s refreshingly smooth and highly sessionable. Nut Brown is the perfect beer for spring.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light brown color, with a very thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, honey, maple and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of nuts and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then some sweetness comes in from flavors of maple, caramel and honey. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, it’s a decent beer but there are several other beers in the style that I would pick first.
