Day #253 – Santa Fe Nut Brown Ale

September 11, 2011

Today was a very surreal day. It was the 10th anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center. I remember exactly where I was that day when it happened, and I don’t think that will be something I ever forget. I attended a memorial service tonight that was tear-jerking. Thoughts and prayers go out to those who have lost loved ones on that fateful day.

Santa Fe Nut Brown Ale

This beer is from Santa Fe Brewing Company in Santa Fe, New Mexico. This is their brown ale at 5.2%. Even though it says “nut” in the name, I don’t think this was brewed with any actual nuts. Nuts! (sorry that was corny.)

This beer pours a clear dark brown color that turns orange when held to the light. Big foamy beige colored head forms up top.

The aroma is roasted malts, dark chocolate, some nutty notes and crisp autumn evenings. Nice smell.

The flavor is dark roast, caramel malts, toasted notes and lightly bittered malts. Finishes roasted and malty.
