Well, I think I had this one. I had it on tap at a TGI Fridays in the Atlanta Airport. The waiter didn’t know beers and called it Georgia Brown so I’m assuming it was this. Anyway, for me this beer tasted almost identical to New Castle. Good stuff.

Thanks to beeryum for this one. Deep copper pour with medium, off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, hops, fruit, cabernet, brown sugar, and slight almonds. Tastes extremely caramel malty, with big brown sugar, some cabernet, and slight berries. Smooth, fairly dense palate but not great complexity here. Still, this one was very good.

Copper in color with a small white head. Sweet malt aroma with subtle roasted flavor. A decent brown ale.

Deep amber in color with a thin white head. Admirable lacing. Aroma is nice and malty with a hint of nut. Flavor is sweet malt with a definite hop presence ... very English in character. A very nice beer.

Thanx to Beeryum, Poured clear brown with a nice tight head, did not last. Sweet aroma , malts perhaps.? The taste was smooth, I tasted honey like the said, and some nice caramel and a very little hop under tone. This is rather good. I reccomend this.

I had decided to pick up this beer because the Sweet Water Festive ale hasn’t arrived yet down in Savannah(damn you Atlanta, send it elsewhere). This beer however is great in taste. I definitely am fond of the nutty flavor to this beer.

Pours a deep brown color with a nice light tan head. Flavor is malty and has hints of chocolate. Not too bad at all.

On tap: Pours a dark copper color. Very dark, chocolate and roasted tasting beer. Starts and finishes very smoothly. A very well blended and great tasting beer. I was very impressed.

It was a nice sweet beer. It went down smooth and tasted great. Sometimes it helps if you have had a few beers to begin with. I would recommend this beer.
