Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale

  • SRM Color: 24
  • Brewer: Samuel Smith
  • Brewer's Description: Brewed with well water (the original well at the Old Brewery, sunk in 1758, is still in use, with the hard well water being drawn from 85 feet underground); best barley malt, yeast and aromatic hops; fermented in ‘stone Yorkshire squares’ to create a relatively dry ale with rich nutty colour and palate of beech nuts, almonds and walnuts.
  • Russ' Rating: 7/10
  • With the Brew: Truly an all occasions beer, I enjoy this brew with friends and family during BBQ's and Football season. It suits Savory and Salty foods.
  • Comments: Before moving to KC where Boulevard Beers were easy to obtain, Samuel Smith was my go to brewer. The Nut Brown has a full bodied malty taste. It pours faster than its rich color implies, but the finish is as smooth as the start.
