Well I usually like Fredrick Brewing Co. Product but this beer fell way below par for them. From appearance it looked good had all the definition like qualities that should be present in a Nut Brown. Smelled, Ok. But taste terrible sweet, like a "malterative" kinda shitty when you are looking for a nut brown. I tasted like some had mixed candy in it, not a good combo. But not to discourage anyone from trying it but if you like nut browns like Rogue and Troges, then you probably will not like this one.
I keep telling people that the English Brown Ale style is one of my favourite styles, but sadly, North American brewers tend to go for an over-hopped undermalted version of the style. This however is one of the better attempts. A nice clear brown pour, the aroma is undoubtedly nuts and caramel. The flavour is slightly sweet with hints of both, but again, too much hops in the finish. MadRobin (2989) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - NOV 12, 2012

12oz bottle. Poured a dark red amber color with a fizzy white head. The aromas are of nuts, roasted malts, slight hops, and spicy notes. The taste is quite nutty, malty, and mild cocoa. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. sebletitje (10477) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2009
bottle mix pack.
Pours amber/brown with off white head.
Aroma of caramel malts, light hazelnuts. On the weak side.
Taste, light caramel, some nutty roasted malts, light notes of chocolate.
Overall finish leaves a light bitter and nutty mouthfeel. Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2009
12oz bottle with Butters. Pours a light tan head with and amber body that has some ruby to it. Smells of molasses and some brown sugar. Tastes like burnt sugar and nut skin. Likke bitter and nutty on the finish. nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2009
12 oz bottle purchased from Woody’s in Cool Springs. Poured a hazy brown/amber color with a half finger of tan head. The aroma was sweet malt with faint notes of molasses and brown sugar. The flavor was somewhat weak, with caramel and toast dominating. This was a weak offering. I didn’t get a lot of nuts in the flavor.
