COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fine Marris Otter malt from Thomas Fawcett & Sons, UK provides the backbone to this classic English beer. (They still use traditional floor maltings. We also brew with mild crystal malt and a hint of pale chocolate malt - all from the heart of England. We have a combination of hearty American hops for the bittering component and delicate East Kent Goldings and Fuggles for the aroma and balance. Our Savannah Pale ale has an original gravity of 1045, is dark amber in color and delicious.

Points for being great-looking and incredibly, smoothly drinkable, this is an excellent session beer. A good example of an English Pale, it lacks the hoppy, Northwestern bite of the American Ales I favor. Quite good.

hazy dark amber, whispy tan head, lots of lace, soft floral hop aroma, great toasted, biscuit, and nutty malt flavors, balanced hop flavor and bitterness, a good cross between a viennia and a pale ale

On tap at the brickstore. Pours a copper/amber color with a bubbly white head. Very carbonated and obviously very bitter. Quick on the finish. Slightly sweet and fruity. Points of for thin and watery. Nice to have a new brewery around. Like a little more complexity and backbone in my beers though.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2006
Pours a dark amber/brown - darker than typical pale ale. Light head. Aroma is of roasted malt (perhaps hints of spice) and hops. The beer has a very light mouthfeel. The carbonation tingles in a way that reinforces the spice aroma, but the flavor is mostly well-balanced malts and hops (neither notably malty nor notably hoppy) - but there is a surprising roasted bitterness and chocolate flavor lingering (from roasted malts). The finish is dry. The taste was much closer to a brown ale than a pale ale - and so was the color. Not a bad beer, but poorly classified

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2006
Dark amber color with a white head. Had a sweet hoppy aroma. Very smooth easy drinking pale ale. Some maltyness up front and finishes with a little hop bitterness.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 24, 2006
Poured a mostly clear dark copper color with a small off-white head. The aroma was sweet and fruity with grapey and toffee notes. The flavor was malty, fruity, and metalic. Semi-dry with a long bitter finish.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Draught pint at The Caledonian in Savannah, GA in the company of President Wunderbier. Dark amber-copper with a smallish quick-receding head....spicy nose, cinnamon and apples and good heavy bready/biscuity malts....lots of malt in the body, very full, with hints of dark roast and subtle dry hops, fairly sweet and juicy front heading into toffeeish stickiness in the middle, and drying out considerably at the finish....nice rendition, another solid beer I’d never heard of from this surprisingly good brewing state.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 22, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2006 Deep amber hue with a short, white, foamy head. Slight caramel and bread malt profile. Spicy floral and herbal hop profile. Some apple and plum esters blend well. Begins moderately sweet, lightly acidic and lightly bitter. The finish is lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Feels very clean, very smooth. Medium bodied, creamy texture, lively carbonation. The pale chocolate malt really does come through as there’s a slightly roasty aftertaste that lingers. Very good, can’t wait for them to start bottling!

RFD Tasting with MJ : A very dark brown bitter. A very flowery aroma with a smooth dark flavor. I’m going to say smooth again, just cause I can.
