Was not a huge fan, cloudy brown. Kind of a standard boring nutty brown with off flavor, slightly acidic. Slightly muddled. Some chocolate too. Eh. drowland (8880) - Georgia, USA - MAY 18, 2015
5/18/15. 32oz growler from Craft on Draft. Murky amber pour with a nice khaki head. Plain aroma, a bit of chocolate and nuttiness, a touch of husky grains. Okay flavor, seems off a bit. Nutty and chocolate, toasted biscuits, but something definitely sour/tart going on in a lemon juice way, acidic, etc. That worries me but otherwise not awful, I guess. Will keep my eye out for others from this brewery. snoworsummer (5911) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Draft at Lazy Dog. Pours Hazy copper with a fizzy white head. Tastes like bitter toast, roasted malt, dry musk. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet, nutty malt. sonnycheeba (6214) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Tap at lazy dog. Pours clear dark amber with creamy off-white head. Aroma is cereal and toasted malts, light caramel, some grassiness, and light woodiness. Flavor is dry malts forward, light sweetness, faint stone fruit esters, and light hop bitterness; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. JHeath99 (1679) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2014

Overall, this is what an American Amber Ale is supposed to taste like. Not overly hoppy or sweet, though the malt presence is there. The hop character (Some grapefruit notes) is on point, making this a beer to drink during any season. The color is definitely amber. Being a hop head, I can always go for more hop aroma, but hard to fault a commercial beer lacking in aroma. AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2013
On tap at 15th Street Pizza and Pub. This was my first from Strawn. It was very well balanced, with a taste that had some banana on top of a solid malt base. A slight bit of tingly carbonation, Good job, I hope they grow and expand. yespr (46523) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2013
From tap at Taco Mac. Pours almost clear and golden deepamber with a small tan head. Aroma is toffee and caramelish. Mild sweet, toasted and caramelish flavoured. Bitter and roasted malty. Lingering toffee malty finish. Cybercat (5959) - Georgia, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Strong, malty aroma has a dusty, hay-ish overtone. Pours a clear chestnut brown with a fairly thick light golden-tan head. Scrumptious flavor has a malty core with a dusty hay overtone and hints of pomme fruit and caramel. Texture has good firmness and a dusty tingle that persists, leaving a woody and straw-dusty finish. Interesting! I wish this new brewery well, very well. ChainGangGuy (4905) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 11, 2012
16 ounce pint - $5.75 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Who the hell is Strawn Brewing Company?
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, dark amber-hued body with a slim, tight head, the color of old parchment paper.
Smell: Mostly notes of toast, of sweet-hinted caramel, with slim support from notes of fruit and hops.
Taste: Bready, moderately toasty malts with a nice, sweet caramel accent. Soft fruitiness with just a little apricot showing. Very mild floral, herbal hops, lightly bitter. Chiefly tastes of toasted bread crusts and caramel until the sweetish finish with some of the subtle fruitiness holding into the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: An easy-drinking, solidly constructed, malt-forward amber ale.
