Description: "Irish Style Nut Brown Ale Nut Brown Ale is made in the tradition of Irish 'session' beers. Nut brown in color, this brew is nicely balanced, with a distinctive malty character that makes for very pleasant drinking." — Hales Ales
The tasting: Dark reddish brown in color with tan head that dissipated slowly, leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, alcohol, and some light earthy hops. Flavor similar to aroma with the addition of bready and caramelized malt that reminded me of a Scottish ale. I didn't really notice a nutty aroma or flavor. It's light to medium in body and has a creamy mouth feel. It finishes with sweet malt and a touch of alcohol. Very drinkable.
Rating: 3 star. Good. I would drink this again if someone gave it to me. This is a very nice beer. I liked its heavier malt flavors combined with its lighter body. I was surprised to see that this 4.2% ABV. Based on the aroma and flavor of alcohol, I expected it to be higher. If you can find it, give it a try.
