Brewed by:
BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse
Arizona, United States

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.

On tap in Plano, Texas.

The beer pours a light brown color with an off-white head. The aroma has a lot of cocoa and a little bit of toffee mixed in. The flavor is more of the same, with some nice toffee and light cocoa notes. The beer is very dry overall. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. One of the best year-round beers from BJ's.

Browned, with amber and orange highlighting in the TV-lit bar. Head is weak, mere wisps of lightly tanned bubbles.

Aromatic, with toasted grains, nuts and hops are coming out of the glass freely. Slight soapiness as well.

The flavor is fairly hoppy while maintaining balance. Very light body, so the hops shine. Slightly medicinal, but fruity. Crisp finish. Biscuity malts, everything is looking for drinkability.

Well-attenuated for a brown ale, holds up throughout the glass. If you like the style, this will get your attention with its hopping. If you like the style and American fruity hops, you'll love this.
