Nut Brown AleNut Brown Ale
Notes: Nut Brown Ale has a diverse grain bill which lends this traditional English ale a variety of flavors that coalesce into a remarkably smooth and pleasant drink. Additions of various pale, caramel and dark malts create a smooth, sweet malt profile with hints of roasted nuttiness. Multiple additions of English hops round out the flavors and give this classic beer a true flavor of the Old World.

Freshness: Bottled in January, 2011
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle
Glassware: Shaker pint
Purchased: Single from J. Barleycorn, Nashville

Medium brown and mostly clear in appearance, with a tan head of two and a half fingers. There was not much in the way of lacing or carbonation. Pleasant, rich, sweet aromas of bready malts and caramel, also with nut and woody smells.

Tastes are of roasted malts and dark bread, with a slight sweetness. Also flavors of nuts, mild chocolate, light coffee and vanilla. Mouthfeel had low to medium carbonation and a medium body. Aftertaste is mainly of malty sweetness and a light bitterness from the toasted grains.

I was concerned this beer might be a bit too old, at right around 6 months since bottling, but it tasted just fine. It seemed to open up with more flavors as it warmed. Overall a solid brown.
