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.

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

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.
