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,

Sample pour of moderate brown with light khaki head. Nose is moderate sweet malt and caramel mostly. Some nuttiness but not a ton. Flavor is lightly zesty caramel and sweet malt. Not a ton of hop presence but what is there is just light citrus. Really drinkable and fairly enjoyable

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft... Pours clear and dark brown with copper flashes when held up to bright light. The nose is toasty and lightly chocolaty. Medium-bodied with adequate carbonation. The flavor is nearly a perfect reflection of the aroma, but also includes a faint, vinous, port-like characteristic. It trends a smidge toward the sweet side of balance, but not by much. Crisp, lightly vinous, mildly sweet finish. Went well with my order of smoked wings at Broken Barrel Tavern.
