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.

Brown body of course, small head. Lightly roasted, chocolate aroma. The flavor is more caramel and nutty.

On draught at brewery (Charlotte location). It pours mahogany, with both a light head and suds lacing. The nose has some molasses, malt and tobacco notes. Flavors are interesting, of chocolate malt and light cloves. The finish is a slightly nut-bitter chocolate bark... clean and neat. The mouthfeel is light with a medium body and refreshing palate. Decently done.

Review from notes from my trip to Florida. #2 of the night. Poured into a pint glass. 3.5 A: Deep amber. Just a touch of creamy head with average retention and some lacing. 2.5 S: Incredibly boring. Just a bit of breadiness and some caramel. Maybe some spicy hops. 2.5 T: More of the same. Boring with light caramel and a little breadiness. 4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation with a pleasant creaminess. Easily the best part of this one. 3.0 D: Too boring for me. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-01-2011 17:59:00

Full amber hue, light head. Musky, husky malt aroma. Some rough, roasty notes in the nose mixed with flat hops. Bland body, flat, stale hoppiness.

Light brown ale. Smell isn’t appealing but very smooth and good overall flavor. Give it to your girlfriend. She’ll love it.

@ Seven Bridges, Tinseltown. :Sniffer: Part of the "let’s cheat and grab a bunch of ratings by doing the $4, sample everything on tap" method...........i thought this was Seven Bridges. Well, no matter. Doesn’t change the fact that this brew is absolute crap. What the hell does a Magnolia tree have to do with this? Well, I wondered. Perhaps because the nose smells like the 2 week old dead flower off one of the trees? Probably. Nothing but brown sugar, molasses, and water. Some grain. But bleh...nasty
