Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.90%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Nutty Brewnette is an American-style brown ale. A blend of four different dark malts contributes to a flavor profile that is sweet with “nutty” notes. A healthy dose of hops makes this beer hoppier and more balanced than most English brown ales.

This is a very exception beer for me and it does have a really good aroma of pecan roast. Dark as an amberbock in contrast, a beautifully resilient froth of the proper amount of head and in my personal experience quite a tasteful delight

Light brown appearance with a tiny amount of head that quickly vanishes. Wasn't impressed at first. Aroma was real neutral, a little bit of maris otter.

All of a sudden it comes together taste wise, a little bit of hop presence, sweet malt kick, and mild roasty nuttiness in the mouthfeel. Thought it would be bland, but no. This is an enjoyable brown ale, something I rarely say.

Solid brown coloring with a think foamy tan head. Smell of almonds and a little toasty malts. Not much hops in the taste but enough to keep it balanced and not overly sweet. Nice malts. Wish for a little more but flavor. Beer feels a little thick and coats that mouth well.

It's your traditional nutty American brown ale. Who doesn't like a great American brown ale ? Right? It goes great with any kind of burger with BBQ sauce. It's got a great crisp nutty aroma as well as the taste. It's a great sit back and relax brown ale. Not much more to say on it
