Nearly opaque dark brown color. Bright, grainy, attractive aromas of roasted nuts, caramelized dried fruits, and mocha pastry with a supple, crisp, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, medium-length banana custard, cocoa, and roasted citrus finish. A rock solid English brown ale with lots of traditional pub table appeal.

English style brown ales are reddish-brown in color and range from 4.5-6% in alcohol. These brews are malt-accented with a nutty character, a gentle fruitiness and low bitterness. Today, this style is most closely associated with Northern England, specifically Samuel Smiths and Newcastle. It has also become very popular with US brewers. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Newcastle Brown Ale, Sam Smith’s Nut Brown Ale, Sweetwater Georgia Brown and Bell’s Best Brown.
