impressed! this local brown ale is a damn good one. pours fuly see through light brown with a good off white head. smells like a brown ale through and through, malty but not too sweet, roasted but not coffee black, just a hint smokey. flavor is the same as the nose, mellow and satisfying. mouthfeel is good too, light for a brown ale, and not too strong. this is a down easy beer, and affordably priced. overall a lovely brown, working well with some 2 year old horsehadish cheese and baguette. will try the other bottled dillon dam brews no doubt

Bottle courtesy of northyorksammy. Thanks!
Mostly clear, medium brown in colour with a thin skim and collar of tan bubbles that lingered. A little bit of sticky lacing. Nice malty aroma, light roast, bready, a bit nutty, caramel. Good flavour too, bitterness stayed just beneath caramel maltiness, notes of roast and toffee, mild minty hop character in the finish. Decent texture, light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Overall, it's a solid brown ale with some tasty malts.

Pours basic brown with no head. Thanks JMBSH.A malty with a little licorice aroma. Medium mouthfeel.Roasted malty caramel, a little chocolate malt. Decent carbonation and drinkability,decent brown, but nothing exceptional. Light bitterness, a tad of sourness.

Sweet George's Brown pours a lightly hazy, reddish brown, and is topped by a light beige film of a head. The aroma is bready, and has a light fruitiness, and hints of roast. This smells like a very nice English Brown Ale.

There's a bready sweetness upfront that moves into a fruitiness in the center, that's balanced by a roasty, hoppy bitterness in the finish. This English Brown Ale is medium-bodied, highly carbonated, and has a bit of a coarseness that I associate with roasted malts.

I really liked this beer, it had a nice malt profile that was the focus of the beer, but it was nicely balanced by judicious use of roasted malts and hops.

Served from a 12oz. bottle acquired from a trade with JMBSH as a generous extra (Thanks!) into my new Dillon Dam Brewery pint glass, that Jason also kindly sent my way at the appropriate temperature (05/08/10)

A: Pours chestnut brown with about 1 finger of a light tan that receded quite quickly.

S: Very nutty with a sweet malt backbone and a touch of roasted malt.

T: Taste mirrors the nose with layers of nuts, sweet malt and some roasted malt. Really a nice and clean flavor profile.

M: Lighter-bodied with some appropriate carbonation, but this seemed a touch watery.

D: A very easy beer to drink and this extremely sessionable.

Overall this was a very nice English Brown Ale and I always enjoy trying a beer that is not distributed in my area. Thanks again Jason!
