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.

Bottle: By far the better of the trail pack so far. Poured a dark brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is enough chocolate to cover the alcohol. Taste is really smooth with a slight bitter choclate aftertaste.

On tap; pretty good tasting beer. Flavor was dominated by a nice combination of chocolate and caramel. Hints of nuts. Color and aroma were as expected. Palate was pretty solid. I would say it is an above average version of the style.

Not as horrific as the nut brown and there porter rock. It has a decent malty kick but too much water and swirly citrus pieces which don’t mend well together.

Columbia, SC - Green’s Discount Beverages - 12 oz bottle - part of a mixer six pak. Dark chocolate pour with a sticky mocha colored head. Earthy aroma with some coffee and chocolate notes. Flavor follows the same trends with a heavy presence of earthiness. Coffee, chocolate, fresh dirt - all there - nutty back end. Thickish mouthfeel. Very decent.

Single bottle from the Dragon Pack, bought at Total Wine in Huntersville, NC. Pours a dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is dark malty nut and a touch of caramel. Taste is rich with a bitter chocolate start and a nice finish. Very impressive.

Nice clean and clear brown pour with a reddish hue, large solid foamy tan head disappears slowly leaving a clean glass. Ahh sweet malty caramel nut aroma. Wow at first its like a sharp cheddar cheese flavor, I mean a quality cheese, then a roasted bitter chocolate flavor finishes clean and dry leaving a nice big warmth in the chest after every swallow which lingers. Nice hops presence in the aftertaste. I like. Could drink this every day.

Deep walnut pour that had a huge brown overflowing head... quite active. The aromas are comforting, especially after warming a bit. I pick up caramel and figs, malt and syrup. The flavor is indeed "nutty", with an overlay of smoky roasts and a hint of a coffee finish. Nice malt interwoven in there, as well. Well-complementary hopped backpull is nice to round out an otherwise dull palate. Not bad overall.

12oz bottle. Filtered with a deep ruby brown hue. Syrupy malt y with a cocoa cookie aroma. Medium bodied with smooth malts. Nice bright hop finish. Caramel and cookie malt flavors. Zesty and zippy malts. Medium effervescence. Piney and spicy hops. Touch of that cola nuance. Hint of dark dried fruits. Good toasty flavor. Good stretching dryness. Balnced between the malts and hops. Between the initial palate to the finish, from the sweet to the dry. Enjoyed this brew!

A winner. Root beer pour with decent carbonation. A wonderful malty character. Sweet and nutty. And yet they manage to slip in a nice hop snap. Easy to drink.
