Nut Brown Ale
Creamy head, dry; flavors of aromatic hops melded with a hint of nuttiness from dark malts.
The History of Nut Brown Ale
Brown ale is a specialty of the North of England, and a very early beer style - it is mentioned in literature in the 16th century. Judicious amounts of dark malt give brown ales brilliant dark-amber color and deep flavors that stop short of roastiness.
The walnut or hazelnut notes in Nut Brown Ale come from dark malts and from fermentation in Yorkshire Squares - no nuts are used in the recipe! Dry, medium-bodied; the Sam Smith ale yeast strain gives a fruity note to the finish.
