Sweet Magnolia Brown Ale

There are certainly bolder brown ales out there, but Rock Bottom's Sweet Magnolia Brown is the perfect transition beer from summer to fall. This version steers toward the British style, with Crystal and Chocolate malts playing the starring role. American grown Mt. Hood hops add a hint of floral aroma and enough bitterness to keep the drinkability high. Brown bread and walnut flavors add depth. Medium-bodied with a pleasant mouthfeel. A fine session ale.

Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery, 3242 Peachtree Road (at Piedmont Road). 5.2 percent ABV.
