Nut Brown Ales are mellow, easy drinkers in the British tradition, but a glance at the zoot-suit-wearing, cigar-chomping, foot-stomping figure on the label of Ska Brewing's Buster Nut Brown Ale will clue you in that this one's different. The beer is light brown with a creamy head, and the nose is a dense mix of toasted malts, caramel nuttiness, and chocolate. It's rich and malty without sacrificing a bit of drinkability at 5.2 percent alcohol by volume. In all, the Buster Nut is representative of everything we love about the American brown Ale tradition – mingling old-world traditions with a willingness to turn up the volume and have fun.
