Druaght. Brown-red, with medium off-white head. Aroma is relatively small, but slightly roasty. Has a little malt in flavor, tad watery, and very thin. Kind of in the middle between sweet and dry, and the brewers should pick a direction and go that way.

on draught: Pours a full red-brown color with just a filmy white head. There’s a faint sweet malt aroma. The Sweet Georgia Brown has a pretty weak mouthfeel and hits my palate thinly also. It’s definitely sweet with a finish that almost reminds me of cotton candy. A few sips later, I noticed just an iota of roastiness there. This beer is pretty easy to drink, but it would be better if it had some more body or something else to balance the sweetness.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Sampled from bott, gift from Staleyiv. Sweet Georgia Brown pours a clear amber brown with a sudsy white head. Thick lacing marks each sip you take from the glass. Aroma is highlighted by floral hops while a candy-like sweetness lurks in the background. Nicely bitter with a clean finish. Toffee flavors are accompanied by a faint spicy, floral flavor hop addition. A little light in the body, so it would make a good session beer. Very enjoyable.

On tap at Sweetwater. Pours brown with reddish hues. Very mild aroma. Taste is cookie, caramel, dark breads. Medium bodied with high carbonation.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2005
Not much of an aroma, a hint of caramel maybe. Has a nice amber brown color. Tastes sweet, malty, with a small hop finish. It is a good session beer.

Great copper color, thick head that dissipates at an average rate. The aroma is quite pleasing, deep and dark. Has a full palate, rich and opulent. Unfortunately, this beer finishes rather poorly, ending strongly bitter for too long. Still a very nice little brown ale though.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2005
Brown. Light tan head. Roasty, malty, nutty- smells good. Same flavor, good session brew, cereal aftertaste. Medium/light body. Nice brown beer.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - AUG 24, 2005
Bottle. Brown pour. Light sweet malty and nutty aroma, not big though. Some nutty flavors, but nothing real assertive. A little light and thin for me, but I can see it being a good session beer for the masses.

A solid brown ale that is a great alternative to its more expenssive counterparts.

A nice brown ale, kind of lacking a lot of flavor or punch. Manily a mild brown ale but a good american brown ale
