Brunette Nut Brown AleBrunette Nut Brown Ale
Notes: Our version of the classic English-style Brown Ale has a blend of six different malts and a hop schedule that results in a low hop character. The unique malt character brings to mind the taste of a blend of various nuts.

I got a can of this beer from my good friend and old neighbor from the 'Wego. It poured a murky dark amber with no head and no lace. The scent had subtle malt and nut notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with subtle toffee and nut presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is a decent beer.

12 oz. can dated 3/19/21
Hazy brown color with small tan head that quickly fades. General toasted bread aroma, not much else. Medium thin body could use more carbonation. Bready caramel malt flavor. Not much hop flavor to speak of. Easy drinking decent brown ale but I wouldn’t seek out another. Plenty of better examples out there

For true an English-style Brown Ale with lots of hop and malts flavor. I will have to buy/drink another one and add to this review.

A - This is a decent looking body, dark brown but mostly transparent, a hint of red highlight. Minimal tan head, no real lacing.

S - Strong nose of sweet malt and bitter tea, a hint of caramel.

T - Following the nose, with an open primarily of brown bread, hints of molasses, a steeped tea hit, and lingering bitterness on the close.

M - A bit prickly at the start from carbonation, a bit dry in the finish.

O - The nose is a beautiful traditional brown, but I think some of the corners have been smoothed off of the flavor, making it a tasty but not spectacular brew.

Brunette has a thick, beige head, a hazy, brown-copper appearance, some bubbles, and a bit of glass lacing. Aroma is of a faint brown bread crust. Some sweet caramel candy, too? Taste is of sourish brown bread, metallic notes, and perhaps pecan shell. Mouthfeel is medium, and Brunette finishes wet and dull.

Pours a ruby brown with little head. Mild malt aroma. Taste is malt forward, with Carmel and chocolate most prevalent, and a hint of roast on the backend. Not much hop presence, so it’s definitely not a West Coast brown ale. Overall a good and drinkable brown ale.

Great looking ale. As soon as I opened the can I could smell maple syrup in the small room I was in, but with the nose up to the glass I’m not picking up much. Taste - salted, caramel popcorn.

Brown colored beer with a rapidly fading head. Taste is caramel and nuttiness on the finish...there is a sour bitterness that I don't like too much. Overall though a decent beer.

From an aluminum can, this brew is a dark, ruby-brown color...clear, with a slim white-ish head. The aroma is of toffee, brown sugar, toffee, and dark malt. The taste is medium-dry, with a little hop bitterness in the mid-taste. Medium in body, soft palate. Finish is flavorful and it is very drinkable. Nice.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a semi-dark rugged brown color with a thin finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated pretty quick. Sly messy lacing. The aroma takes the sweet roasted nuttiness to blend with the caramel and toffee malts. Smooth light milk chocolate. Subtle roasty coffee bean. The flavor brings about the roasty qualities to glide into the smooth sweet malts. Nuttiness is there and leads into a gentle aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Nicely carbonated. Smooth roasty notes hit my tongue nicely. Overall, this one was a very nice brown ale that I would have again.

Nebraska Brewing Brunette Nut Brown Ale, 4.8% ABV, 15 IBU. Pours thin and dark brown with no head. Nose is malty and very slightly nutty. Taste follows, with a bit of over-carbonation tanginess, with very little bitterness, though a bit of a dry finish. Mouthfeel was just OK due to being thin and over-carbonated. Overall good. What blew me away though was the can - had seen pictures of those, but never had one. Talk about ultimate wide-mouth container - nearly the whole top comes off as a big pull-tab.
