beer: samuel smith’s nut brown ale

brown nut... ha!
sam smith's brown nut... ha!

store: bevmo
type: english brown ale
abv: 5.00%

so i’m parlaying my success with samuel smith’s brewery with this… it’s a really good brown ale — not the run of the mill brown ale, mind you.

brought this to enjoy at andy’s and adam’s for the usa v spain futbol game (who woulda guessed the outcome of that game?)

it pours and looks like every brown ale you’ve seen — dark brown with little head (like me… what?)

the taste was very sweet — i noted caramel and toffee in the flavor… wasn’t expecting that, but was pleasantly surprised.  matched with some good cheese whose names i can’t remember off the top of my head… hint hint
