This is probably my favorite beer right now. I love Brown Ales and this is the best I've had. I buy it regularly. I am from Georgia, and of English decent, so I'm basically who this beer was made for. Plus, this is readily avialible in my area. Thanks Sweetwater! It really looks beautiful in a glass. Clear ruby red and brown. Satisfying from the first taste to being plastered. This ain't sipping ale.

Excellent brew! The appearance was like the bsp from sweetwater it has a nice lace that definetly sticks to the glass the whole way down. The smell is of malts and full of hops! The taste wow I was not expected the sweet caramel taste but man it is good. The mouthfeel is medium but very nice which makes for a great drinkability goes down so smooth!! I think this definetly worth having the wonderful state of georgia in its name!!!! I advise you to try any of the sweetwater brews beings that I have not found one that is bad yet!

Bulldog in Jackson MS. Hefty lacing that quickly dissipated. Smooth with hints of molasses and caramel. Delicious brown ale. Reminds me of KM Brown. Can I get some more?

Pours a deep, dark brown with a thin layer of brownish, off white head that's creamy and soft. The nose has a nice malty aroma that's toasty, nutty, and caramelly. The flavor is toasty, roasty, a bit nutty, earthy, almost smoky, a little sweet with good caramel notes. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, a bit chewy, smooth, and well carbonated.

This is a really solid beer. It's flavorful, complex, drinkable, refreshing, enjoyable. I would definitely have this again.

Copper colored with a low beige head and decent carbonation but no lace. Big nutty aroma and lightly sweet aroma. Nutty malt flavor dominates with a sweet honey-like taste but not overly so. Light bodied and refreshing with nice balance.

A good session beer for an English Brown. I rated this as an English Brown - hard to compare to an American Brown or more Robust Brown...

Label states: "Honey malt"

Originally brewed by Atlanta’s first microbrewery Marthasville Brewing Company which is now closed.

Poured this one from a 12 oz. glass into a pint glass. Thanks to a friend in Bham for bringing me a 6-pack!

It poured a nice dark amber color, with a sizable head that lingered for a while. The aroma is a blend of maltiness and nuttiness that leaves me eager to drink up! The beer has a nice rich roasted nut flavor... malty but a good blend. Very crisp and easy to drink... the bitterness is subtle and nice.

I'm a fan of this one, very nice brown ale!
