Garrison Brewing Company
Nova Scotia, Canada

Style: English Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Like the rich, dark brews of southern England this traditional ale draws on specialty malts such as chocolate, caramel and black patent. “Nut Brown Ale” is a deliciously flavourful dark beer like those popular in early Nova Scotia.

341 ml bottle purchased at the brewery in Halifax and consumed the same day.
Pours a nearly opaque, dark brown with a good tan head and decent lacing.
Malty aroma of moderate strength for style with some subtle complexity.
Flavor: more average but still caries a little complexity and a very good sweet-bitter balance.
Good, medium carbonation; medium bodied.
