Nut Brown from AleSmith Brewing

Nut Brown

By: AleSmith Brewing

Product Description: Announcing the cure for the common over-hopped beer. Not into "Hop-Bombs"? This English style brown ale doctor ordered. A malt taste that's polar opposite from the hop-crazed beers filling the isles today.

A delicious change-of-pace "malt forward" beer that stands out among the more common hop forward brews. As soon as you pour it, you'll notice the beautiful dark mahogany red color. Followed by a taste as intriguing as the color.

So smooth, creamy with a thick head. Chances are you haven't tried a beer like this before. This one is very highly recommended. So session-able, Nut Brown could easily become your "every single day beer."

Tasting Notes: Ruby dark brown in the glass with two fingers of tan head. Smell is roasted malt and hazelnut up front, caramel and faint citrus on the back-end. Initial flavor is toffee, followed by introductions of toasted bread and dark chocolate as the beer crosses the tongue. Ends in a bitter-sweet finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with high carbonation.

What's on the bottle...

AleSmith Nut Brown is a tribute to one of our favorite British styles. Deep mahagony 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 session-able ale that embodies our commitment to quality.

This versatile style is perfect alongside a variety of foods from grilled sausages with spicy mustard to oysters on the half-shell. English farmhouse and nutty hard cheeses such as Gruyere and aged Gouda pair very well too.

Serve in a pint at 45-50deg

More from the brewer

AleSmith's interpretation of this classic English-style ale is smooth, dark, and rich. A variety of specialty malts produce a brilliant dark brown color and a wonderful malt complexity. A light dose of East Kent Goldings and Styrian Goldings hops from England balance the malt sweetness without adding bitterness to the flavor profile. Reintrodcued at AleSmith in 2002, Nut Brown Ale has quickly become one of our most popular beers.

Rich chocolate malt flavors create complexity and drinkability in this classic English-style Nut Brown ale. Although dark in color, Nut Brown Ale is an extremely easy drinking, relatively low alcohol beer.

Storage: Keep cold and dark, and drink as fresh as possible.

Sessionable: Yes.

Serving Tips: Serve in a pint at 45 to 50 degrees.

Warning: Beer of the month clubs and mass producers promise "craft" beer…deliver less-than-stellar drinking experience.

Sadly, it's true…
98% of breweries in America are now labeled as "craft beer" producers, a term that's quickly losing its meaning. But most are still hiding dull, lifeless beer behind clever names and fancy labels.
