Sweetwater "Georgia Brown"
Sweetwater Brewing Company - Atlanta, Georgia USA
Brown Ale (ABV 5.4)

[Best served in a Dimpled Mug]

Rating: 3.3/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a hazy copper brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) creamy beige head that lasted for a decent while which produced some very good sheets of lace on the glass.

The aroma was typical of a Brown Ale with some roasted chocolate malts, a smidgen of herbal hops and a doughy yeast with notes of coffee, caramel, brown sugar and a very light dark fruit ester.

The taste was malty to say the least with mild chocolate and caramel notes from the beginning and finished about the same but with a slight hoppy bitterness, a touch of brown sugar and a strong coffee presence. The flavor hung around for a little while with the taste of coffee being the most dominant, but also having a very mild sweet bitterness to it.

Mouthfeel was just a shade under medium in body with the texture being creamy and a little oily and having a medium carbonation.

Overall a pretty straight forward Brown Ale. Bold and tasty, but with no surprises. Most definitely a brew you could drink a few of.
