I've had the New South White Ale on tap in my house for quite some time along with Yuenglings and decided to try the New South Brown.

This is without a doubt the best Brown Ale I have ever drank.I like it even better than New Caslte. I'm begenning to believe everything New South brews is awesome. Time to go try some more of their fine beer.

from notes taken at the brewery:

A: pours a solid brown with into a clear plastic cup with a finger of tan head.

S: nutty and sweet is the theme here. Caramel, toffee and honey roasted peanuts.

T: the sweet candy flavors make the first dance across the tongue. Nuts and heavy caramel notes, toffee. almost a bit cloying but it walks that line on the right side.

MF: there could be a bit more of a body to back up the full flavor of this beer.

O: a very nice nut brown I could see myself having too many of these.

Had this beer on tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Myrtle Beach. First of all, they served this way too cold and had to let it sit for a few minutes. No head was to be found by the time I recieved it, but it was a good looking beer. I'm usually not a big fan of brown ales, they are often too sweet for me, but this one is nicely balanced. It certainly leans towards sweetness but nothing over powering. Great malt flavor with just a slight bitterness. It also had a clean finish with no lingering sweetness in the back of my mouth. Overall I was pleasantly surprised with this offering, especially since it came from the tourist trap of Myrtle Beach. I could probably go to town on a few of these in one sitting. This was the first beer I had from New South and I can't wait to try some more.

Appears a dark brown with a solid beige head. Lots of tiny lacing is stuck to the inside of the glass.
Smell is of roasty malt and sugary sweetness.
Tast is a nice balance of roasty malt with a typical brown ale taste that is solid.
Mouthfeel is semi dry with an effervescent feel.
Drinkability is good for this one.

My second offering from the New South. A standard, but solid English Brown. Served in a standard pint glass, the beer shows dark brown color with ruby highlights, a thin head that plants firmly atop the brew and laced well and the beer seemed to disappear from the glass. Aromas are mild and resemble chocolate, malt, light coffee, barley, and a mild lactose / fermented scent. Flavors are more pronounced than the aromas, but display the same characters while adding a heavy bread, malt flavors and textures. Quite clean in the finish with an emphasis on nuts and chocolate. Another pleasant session with the New South.

Very good brown ale. Clear Amber color. Pours with thick cream colored head that dissipates fairly quickly. No harsh after taste.

Appearance: brown with a 2" fluffy head that lingers around a while.

Smell: mild malt sweetness, a bit of nuttiness, and some soft earthiness.

Taste: caramel, toasted nuts, some mild earthy tones, and a nice bitterness balances this one out.

Mouthfeel: smooth throughout. Aftertaste is short-lived. Medium bodied beer.

Drinkability: a nice sessionable ale that anyone can enjoy. Somewhat refreshing too.

June 5, poured from a New South growler my daughter brought back from vacation the day before. Moderate malty aroma with hints of roasted grain and caramel. Light hop and nutty character detected. Small off-white head and soft carbonation probably due to growler fill. Fair lacing and a clear amber color give it a good appearance. Initial light flavor of malt and caramel finishes nutty and slightly sweet and bitter of average duration. Light to medium body, watery texture that stays mild on the palate. Pleasant drinking, amber session type beer for a summer day when you want something more flavorful. Nice brew.

This is my favorite offering from the local brewery. Nothing amazing, but nothing to scoff at. I will take this over some megaconglomerate newcastle any day of the week.
She pours a dark hazlenut brown, decent head with a bit of lacing.
Smell is of brown and caramel malt with a wee bit of hoppiness in the background.
Taste is smooth, crisp, mostly malty but not too far out of balance.
The mouth is a bit light and a bit overcarbonated, but not too shabby.
I drink this quite regularly, easy down, pretty refreshing, nice and made local...good enough for me.
