Well from the standpoint of hop availability I would go with the nutbrown but then again gotta always love a good pale ale.

I'm brewing some darker stuff these days to get ready for the onset of fall, and I think a good nut brown is perfect when the air is crisp.

I, too, am a fan of a nut brown to welcome in the fall. Sadly mine had to be dumped because of improper rinsing of PBW on my part. Boo!

I am partial to the nut brown ale, but then I am looking forward to autumn!!

I would be tempted to modify that to a Maple Pecan Brown Ale.

Now I am hungry for a pecan pie

Sierra Nevada clone. You still have a lot of hot days to come this year. You can do a Brown for the next one.
