Brown in color with a medium body, Sweet Magnolia has a floral hop aroma created by Mt. Hood hops. A sweet, malty flavor is rendered by Crystal and Chocolate malts from the United Kingdom. Sweet Magnolia Brown won a gold medal in the 1998 Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado.

On tap at Seven Bridges for RBWG bus tour. Pours a clear brown with thin beige head and little to no lacing. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, and slight nutmeg spice. Taste follows, slightly dry. Nothing special, but better than Newcastle.

Leighton (11355) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2013
Tap at Seven Bridges during RBWG 2013. Pours. Lear brown with a fine, creamy head. Pretty simple stuff, but a bit sweeter than most brown ales, which I actually like. Light dirt bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, toasty bread. Fine.

Nice brown but a standard brown. Chocolate and toffee. Nothing ground breaking but still well done ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3 oz sample pour. Sweet nutty flavors, missing the spice in the nose most brown ales impart. Rich, full mouthfeel, bordering on creamy.

8/22/12. On tap at the Seven Bridges brewpub. Clear brown pour with a small tan head. Nice nutty aroma with some tannic bitterness and a touch of chocolate. Nutty flavor with a touch of chocolate. Definitely one of their least offensive offerings.
