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.

Medal: Gold medal winner at the 2001 Great American Beer Festival – English Style Brown Ales.

Malt: 2 Row, Black, Victory, 30-37 Carastan, 70-80 Crystal, Chocolate

Hops: Columbus, Willamette

Bottle. Light brown color. Minimal head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Taste is over the top brown sugar, cane syrup, and raisins. It was awful. Drain pour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had a million times. First time at the brewery. Good American brown. Some chocolate, and a little nutty, with an American hop design. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can - pours a clear but dark brown with a hint of red and a medium very light tan head. The aroma is roasted nuts, toasted wheat, leather, molasses and fresh cut oak. My taste buds picked up roasted malts, cardboard, sawdust and a hint of hop. Disappointing but not awful

kingaugusta (270) - Georgia, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Pours dark brown with a fine tan head. Nose is weak and brown sugar. Flavor is more rich at first than anticipated with a bit of brown sugar, raisins, and bread, but it fades to a tasteless finish in a big hurry. The definition of mediocre.

MattShizzle (614) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2016
Bottle - from sampler pack. Dark brown and a bit translucent. Smell is of malt and roastiness. Good. Nice mildly roasty flavor with some maltiness. A bit overcarbonated.

scarletfire65 (1472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle at home. Deep brown, almost black pour. Huge head with a bit of lacing. Aroma is of sweet malt, cookie dough, tootsie roll. Light bodied, a tad watery, roasted nuts, toasty malt, hint of chocolate. Pretty thin. Almost no hop presence. Ok.

Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Poured a medium brown with a beige head. Aroma was of toasted malt, caramel, light grassy hops. Flavor similar, lightly metalic, toasty. Meh

HighlanderOne (1343) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Poured from bottle. Faint malt aroma. Good lookin solid mahogany with lacing tan head. Tasting caramel malt with just the right amount of hops. Hop flavors are lager and some pine. Dry cocoa notes. Easy to drink. Well done.
