    [Best served in a Dimpled Mug]

    The pour was a hazy copper brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) creamy beige head that lasted for a decent while thus producing 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.

    Once again Sweetwater delivers a great beer. This brew’s name tells all, it’s sweet like southern tea and it’s as brown as Georgia pine. A truly easy drinking brown ale. It starts off with a wonderful toasty aroma. It’s extremely gentle on the palate and the finish is amazing. Great Fall or Winter beer.

    My favorite beer in the bottle. There are several great beers from this local Atlanta Brewery but the best of the group. If you prefer something a little lighter, try the Sweetwater 420.
