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.

Had this one bottled in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. Very nice medium brown pour with a thick tan head, nose of chocolate and cashews, plenty of chocolate and coffee notes in the taste. Nice!

Bottle. Pours dark amber with a nice pillow of head that fades slowly to a white halo. Slightly sweet aroma with only a hint of nuttiness. The taste is surprisingly complex with a bit of hoppy bite up front that gives way to a light toasted nut flavor. Very smooth and drinkable.

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.

On tap at Blue Light, Charlottesville, VA. Deep brown with a frothyish head. Sweet nutty aroma, dominated by malts, but also has some citrusy hops there. Flavor is full of bitterness, with some grapefruity hops mixed in- just like the aroma. Kinda thick for a brown- but I’m not complaining!

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 24, 2008
From dkachur via trade. The pour was dark brown with attractive garnet highlights glowing on the edges. The head was off-white, almost one-finger tall and coughed up flecks of lacing. The aroma was brown sugar, light chocolate and roasted malt with faint hop bitterness. The flavor was chocolate, roasted malt, nutty, spicy and possibly even some hops on the finish. The mouthfeel was average and the finish was unremarkable. Good.

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.

Holdwine (1075) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - APR 12, 2007
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.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - APR 19, 2008
Pours like black coffee, a little read. Very flat head. Smells like nothing really, slight chocolate, dust. Taste is spicy hops, chocolate. Good for the style. There’s nothing misplaced about it. Nice dryness, toffee. Reminds of a thin Mackelson.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown and lite brown head. Nutty aroma and taste of malt and chocolate with bitter after taste.

I found this to be a malt forward chocolaty brew, which is not what I was expecting based on the beer’s description. The hops were faint, but nonetheless the beer is enjoyable and well crafted.
