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

phaleslu (6555) - 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 (5758) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, 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)

Savannah, Ga - Piggly Wiggly - 12 oz can. Murky medium brown pour, sticky off-white head with nice lacing. Aroma has some sour notes, a touch of chocolate. Flavor improves as it warms with some chocolate notes, a touch of molasses, some brief topsoil notes. Mouthfeel has a nice chalkiness to it. Not bad.

unclemattie (4199) - Georgia, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Tap @ the Distillery. Dark brown color, thin head. Toasted malt scent. Flavor is a nice bold roasty malt. Finishes with a heavy bitterness than accompanies the malt. Superb Brown Ale. (3267)

nearbeer (3750) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 15, 2011
Draft pint at Lighthouse Pizza, Tybee Island. Brown with a nice little covering of foam. Nose of roasted walnut, mocha and caramel. Flavors are a similar blend, with a light touch of citrus and resin to sweep away the sweetness on the finish. Light-medium body is well balanced and drinkably watery, with a medium carbonation.

LilBeerDoctor (3497) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2014
Can. Pours a medium brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, lightly roasted malt, hazelnut. Flavor is more roasted with some sweet malt in the finish. Decent brown ale - nothing spectacular- but it’s drinkable. A little sweet though. 6/4/6/3/14 (3.3/5)
