Beer Review: Full Sail Brewing Nut Brown (Pub Series)

Nut Brown Ale – A smooth, malty & easy drinking dark beer.

After a long day on the mountain carving turns in deer powder, snowboarders and skiers make their way down the mountain to warm up and relive all those great runs in our pub. Our British style nut brown ale helps fuel the stories of deep powder and epic yard sales. The combination of 2 row pale, crystal and chocolate malts impart an array of malt and chocolate flavors in a medium bodied ale with an extremely smooth palate. Brown Ale drinks easy. Fuggle and Mt.Hood hops contribute a slightly spicy aroma and finish to complement this beer’s malt character.
AVAILABLE FOR 90 DAYS ONLY - JANUARY TO MARCH

ABV 6.0% IBU: 31

Grabbed a 6-pack of this at my local New Seasons. Haven't seen it before, nor did I receive a newsletter about it. It has just bee released! Let's give it a go. An underrated style indeed.

Appearance: (3.5)
- This puppy is filtered clear, and brown. Much like a dark sun-brewed tea, this beer screams brown ale. Not much of a head but an off white dusting in the glass and a small ring. Overall pretty simple looking but for the rich brown appearance. 

Smell: (3.5)
- And of course, the always noticeable Full Sail yeast and grain aromas. Behind the nice bittering grassy hops does lye a slight chocolate and sweet quality. The hops are certainly present with an earthy herbal quality. The yeast is certainly overpowering though. 

Taste: (4.0)
- Yep. It's a Full Sail beer. Not that that is a bad thing. Great roasted grainy and yeasty flavor. Sweet sugars and brown sugar finish. Light molasses and earthy biscuit flavors hit up front, and the light bitterness from the herbal and grassy hops really balance this number out. I do like this beer.

Mouth Feel: (3.5)
- It's a touch chewy and only slightly drying. It does have a slight syrupy effect, but not very noticeable. Overall it is well carbonated from there ever-evolving yeast. It's easy to drink, and leaves you wanting some more.

Overall: (3.5)
- It's a solid brown. Nothing more, nothing less. If you desire that Full Sail taste, this is certainly one to jump to first while you can. It certainly has some more complexities to it than some of their standards. It tastes great, is clean, and is always top quality.
