kinda a dirty muddy brown color with a off white soapy head. Malty earthy aroma to it, maybe like nut shells. The body was a lot like nuts sauted in brown sugar. Not too bad for a session beer.

In the glass, it’s a clear nut brown with a thick ivory head. Smell hints at a light nuttiness but very light. Not much in the nose at all. Taste is nutty and malty. Lightly fruity. Some sour yeastiness in the finish that is a bit unpleasant. Smooth with a sticky aftertaste. A pretty good brown.

Pours a coppery nut brown with a large foamy tan head that dwindles away lazily as you drink and provides some fair lacing. Sweet hoppy caramel malt aroma. Creamy malty caramel malt flavor that finishes hoppy and dry. Medium-bodied palate.

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.

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.
