Peak Organic - Nut Brown Ale


4.7% ABV

"Our Nut Brown Ale starts out very smooth, like an English-style Brown Ale. The use of Chocolate Malt, Munich Malt, and Hallartau Hops give this beer a crisp, nutty finish. Peak Nut Brown is a delectable beer loaded with complex, differentiated flavors that don’t overwhelm the palate, making it a perfect dark beer for food pairing."

THE POUR

This ale pours a deep burnt orange. It has a one finger head with decent lacing.

THE AROMA

The aroma is light and sweet with hints of bread and yeast. Not very "big" in any direction.

THE TASTE

The taste is very balanced with sweet malts a hint of coffee and a sharp crisp finish coming from the Hallartau hops. It has a thin mouth feel but the complexity makes up it.

OVERALL IMPRESSIONS

My overall impression of this ale is good. It has all the qualities of a good English ale. It is however a little thin on the palate. I look forward to picking up some of their other offerings to try. I would rate this a 7 out of 10
