COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. George American Brown Ale is the typical American take on a classic English style. This beer exhibits an assertive American hop character overlying a malty richness which lends it a slightly sweet, toasty flavor and aroma. Dark brown in color with a thick tan head our American Brown Ale is a brewed from a full malt base and is well balanced by a spicy/citrusy hop bitterness.

This is a very enjoyable Brown Ale, drinkable, enjoyable. No bad after taste... but still average taste. I may be against what St George wants... but I like something that stands out. But this is just enjoyable very enjoyable. Nice nutty smell... easy drinking.

Pours an amber brown with a moderate tan head. The aroma is roasted malts, nuts, and maybe a little fruit. The body was moderate and little creamy! The flavor is a bit nutty, malty, a little woodsy, and there are some sweet malts right before a mild hop bitter finish.

Aurelius (3890) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Tea brown, bad clipart label. Dry, grassy, yeasty-graham aroma. Graham cracker sweetness, medium bitterness, light astringency. Blind, I would have guessed that this was a Vienna. Some faint cherry tones in the finish. Medium body. Meh - kinda minor league. On tap, Capital Ale House, Richmond.

12oz bottle. thin tan head. malt sweetness and dark fruit aroma. Taste of smooth malts, easy finish, hard finding the hop balance. not bad

kramer (4681) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear ruby brown body with a one finger fizzy beige head that had decent retention. Nutty and slightly grainy nose with some nice chocolate notes. Kinda grainy with a underlying cooked veggie note though. The flavor is mostly nutty malt and moderate bitter hops that come out on the back end with some cocoa notes. A little muddled. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with fizzy moderate carbonation. Just another below average Brown Ale. Not a whole lot of character here.

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 12, 2009
Serving: 12 oz. bottle. Appearance: Almost black with small ruby highlights. It has a small, foamy, light tan head. Poor head retention. Aroma: Very nutty with nice roasted notes and even a hint of chocolate. Taste: Definitely on the roasty side, but a little thin on the body. Earthy with hints of mineral and coffee. I didn’t get the spicy/citrus hop bitterness they talk about. The flavor isn’t bad, but it lacks a punch. Palate: Medium carbonation with a medium, slightly watery mouthfeel. Medium-long, roasty finish. Just kind of meh. Overall: A very average brown ale that is pretty forgettable. You aren’t missing anything if you don’t have this one.

DocLock (7481) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2009
Dragon pack bottle. Pours deep brown with 1-finger off-tan head. Nose is roasty dark malt, cacao, nuts, peaty brown sugar. Tastes malty, earthy, with brown sugar, walnut, and cacao in the finish. Nice balance and complexity, and yet another winner from St. George, as far as I’m concerned one of the premier brewers in Virginia, or anywhere else for that matter.

adavis234 (286) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2009
12 oz bottle. Looks a dark brown when in the glass but the pour contains a lot of red color. Head nearly nonexistent. Mocha/malt nose with a hint of nut. Spicy, malty body. Nutty, wood flavor as well. Aftertaste is bitter. A decent offering but not the brewery’s best.

TomDecapolis (4394) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - DEC 8, 2008
Pours a deep brown chestnut with a bunch of amber notes and a medium creamy bubbly tan head that left lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate, toasted malt, caramel, nuts, light citrus notes, vanilla and some dark fruits. Flavor of caramel, milk chocolate, toffee, toasted malt, nuts, light spicy hop character along with some citrus, vanilla and some hop bitterness. This may be my own opinion, but with American in the title I want to see more citrus floral hops in the nose and a touch more bitterness. Dont get me wrong the malt character in this beer is nice. The chocolate notes in the aroma and flavor are both really nice. So in the end...a really solid beer, just want more hops in my American Browns.
