Sort of middle of the road... in terms of flavor and and aroma. It’s certainly easy drinking with flavors of roasted malts and faint chocolate. Aroma is faint with notes of toasted malts. The hop burp is very chocolate. Finish is smooth but a little watery. Fair.

Sweetwater succeeds again with one of the better brown ales I've ever had, currently enjoying this on tap at their draft house in the ATL airport. Was served pleasantly exceedingly fresh, smells strong of chocolate and caramel malts with some fuggle hop earthiness. Appetizing copper-brown appearance with white head. Very smooth and drinkable, features subtle hops and cocoa/caramel maltiness, and finishes clean and refreshing. Pleasant chocolatey aftertaste, highly recommended! I will be buying this again!

From site: Definitely one of the finer American Brown Ales. A deep copper colored, mild brown ale. SGB is accentuated by a slight nuttiness from its malt character. Designed to be a session beer it has a real smooth finish with a very subtle hop character. Medal: Gold medal winner at the 2001 Great American Beer Festival – English Style Brown Ales. Malt: 2 Row, Black, Victory, 30-37 Carastan, 70-80 Crystal, Chocolate Hops: Columbus,
