COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Savannah Brown Ale is an American brown ale crafted with a rich malt flavor, balanced by a crisp hop finish. It has aromas of roasted nuts, chocolate, and citrus. The flavors start with a blend of chocolate, caramel, and roasted nuts and follow with a balance of resinous and citrusy hops. The beer pairs well with hearty dishes. Steaks, hamburgers, and sausage are all good choices, and the hoppiness of the beer makes it particularly well suited to be served alongside game dishes. The beer also stands up to strong cheeses such as sharp cheddar, gorgonzola, blue, and (our favorite) asiago

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2013 12 ounce can canned in April 2013. Thanks Brandon! Pours clear, deep reddish brown in color, with a small but durable tan head. Aroma: a balanced and very appealing mix hops and malts. The flavor leans more to the hoppy side, and is certainly a bit hoppy for style. Medum body; crisp, medium+ carbonation.

Nice amber to brown pour with good two finger head. Good lacing. Light citrus hop aroma mixed with some toasted and caramel malts. Good malt body and a real hoppy aftertaste. Quite hoppy, but it doesn’t linger. Good overall brown ale.

nocsimian (11) - Georgia, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Poured from a growler. Nice ruby brown pour with a 1/2 inch head easily forming though carbonation seems a bit over done. Decent amount of lacing. Small notes of coffee and chocolate. Slight bite at the end partly due to carbonation. Hops are well balanced. Overall a nice beer but not likely sessionable.

Imaena (1878) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Botle: This is a solid brown ale that is right down the middle in terms of flavor and body.

A solid Brown Ale. Pours an even brown with a dense khaki head, Fairly even lacing. Aroma is vague with some bread and malt. Smooth mouthfeel and texture. Very balanced roasted malts and bitterness, Finish has some molasses and a hint of toast.

On draught at The Distillery in Savannah. Dark brown pour with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malt and hops.

phaleslu (6790) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Draft at World of Beer in Savannah. Pours a clear deep copper color with a finger if frothy off-white head that laces heavily. Aroma of toasted malts, earthy hops, nuts, and mellow caramel. Flavor of earthy hops, caramel, toast, dust, and leaves. Finishes with a surprising amount of bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, and an earthy, dry, bitter mouthfeel. Interesting brown.

Braudog (5890) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Draft at the Crystal Beer Emporium in Savannah. Funny, ’cause the guy next to me asked for something local and they gave him this ... never mind it’s brewed in Virginia. This is a dark, nutty and creamy brew, opaque and swallowing the light. It delivers with a chewy malt, semi-sweet. Quite nice drinker, ending with a sweet toffee finish. (#4702, 7/23/2012)
