Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly known as Nautical Nut Brown Ale.

AleSmith Nut Brown is a tribute to one of our favorite British styles. Deep mahogany in color, its rich, malt forward flavor profile balances notes of biscuit, mild cocoa and earthy hops. A creamy mouthfeel and full body enhances its drinkability, making Nut Brown an extremely sessionable, ale that embodies our commitment to quality.

22 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, deep, dark, mahogany color with two full fingers of oatmeal-colored head that dissolved into a lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Lots of roasted malt and dark bread, with some brown sugar and toffee.

Taste: Roasty, malty, nutty, delicious! Lots of roasted malt up front, imparting notes of freshly baked dark bread like pumpernickel, followed by some brown sugar-like sweetness, and finished with some nicely balanced hops. Absolutely delicious!

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied to slightly chewy. Some good carbonation to slightly tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 5.0%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is one of the best American made versions of an English Nut Brown Ale that I’ve ever had! It’s absolutely delicious!! Fans of brown ales should definitely give it a try. I’m certainly going to get some more of this!!

Chestnut colored with an oatmeal colored head that rises up minimally and settles out quickly. Surprisingly clear. Low aroma of cocoa and dark malt, a little toasted.

Flavors of dark malt, cocoa, notes of molasses and licorice, slight metallic note. A raisin note lingers. Thin mouthfeel, a bit slick. Decent beer, but I expected more from this world class brewer.
