Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale

My interest in Brown Ales was recently revived by Tommyknocker and Rogue Hazelnut, which both proved to be really interesting and tasty to me. I wasn’t expecting either to really be great, but they were both really delicious, so I came to Sam Smith’s with a higher expectation than normal, especially since I though the English version would add something too. I was disappointed, this wasn’t as good as either.

Light brown appearance with good lacing, but the color is a little thin. The thin nature is repeated in the mouthfeel.

Tastes are slightly acidic and has a large amount of metallic character, not very nice. More bitterness in the finish than I would like for the style and a lack of the nutty sweetness that I was hoping for.
