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

Pours with an amber-brown body topped by a thin head with little lacing. It’s slightly sweet with a slight roastiness, a little nuttiness and a nice bitter hoppy finish. Slighlty dry, smooth and medium bodied.

on tap - bier garden asheville nc - nearly odorless - just a slight whiff of a milky sweetness. flavor is bland and non-descript - even for a brown ale. slightly sour finish. below average for a brown ale.

This was decent. Solid brown color, lacy white head. thin on the palate, but hints of nutty carmel and vanilla ending the heavy nutty flavas

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.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2010 malt and roasted nose. copper color. very fruity hop flavor and mild malt and nut notes. smooth finish. very good. ----re-rate--- in much need of a re-rate. apparently this has turned into a completely new beer! clear bronze under a small beige head. subtle caramel aroma. malty flavor with a bit of bitter coffee and toast. not sweet. light-medium bodied. moderate carbonation. dry. nice nutty aftertaste.

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.
