Styled after southern English brown ales, our Nut Brown Ale kit is a great all-around beer: it's easy to brew (its dark color and rich flavor make it forgiving of mistakes), it's mild enough for light beer drinkers, but characterful enough for more experienced brewers and beer lovers. The finished product exhibits a deep copper color, fruity/caramelly flavor and aroma with toasty, chocolaty notes; and it tastes great after just a few weeks.

now that is nice Review by Nick
Rating
So, before this beer, I didn't like brown ales, but I wanted to like them. And now, I do. I added .25 oz Magnum hops and boiled 60 minutes, other than that, followed the recipe right on. Added two gallons of distilled water to top it off after boil, fermented around 66F for one month, then kegged it. Let me say, this is not a super intense brown ale, but it is a great introduction to the style. My advice: add some more hops. (Posted on 8/9/12)
Not bad, easy to brew Review by John
Rating
VERY easy to brew, so a great one for a first timer. Also doesn't require much time for fermentation - 1-2 weeks.

Tastes very much like Leiny's Fireside Nut Ale and not really like Newcastle at all, as previous commentators mentioned. Don't pick up too much of the chocolate flavor (it is there though), but the nutty flavor is there for sure. (Posted on 7/13/12)
Good Beer wish it had more body Review by Sam
Rating
Good easy drinking beer, I with it had more body though, and next time im going to only do about a 30 to 45 min boil on the hops. I recommend waiting (if possable) at least 3 weeks to let it bottle condition. I tried it after two weeks and it still had a pretty good bite, now after 3 it has mellowed out alot and the flavours are getting better every day. (Posted on 7/13/12)
Great with cold brewed coffee Review by Benjamin

Add about 8 or 10 oz of cold brewed coffee to this beer a few days before bottling/kegging and this makes a fantastic coffee brown ale.

That has become my "House brew" (Posted on 7/5/12)

Very forgiving recipe that finishes into a great tasting beer. It was one of the favorites during my last beer club meeting. Definitely will be one of my house beers. (Posted on 5/9/12)

Addendum to earlier review Review by Aaron Ramson
Rating
My batch has now bottle conditioned for 4 weeks and the taste is AMAZING. People. Any get enough of this beer. It sent from mild with sweet coffe/chocolate notes at 2 weeks, to smoky, bold and slightly hoppy at 4 weeks of bottle conditioning. My final rating is 5 stars IF it's allowed to condition for a month. (Posted on 4/5/12)
