Nice brown body, very good for a Brown Ale. Minimal to zero head in this brew. Very nice aroma, sweet malts and very subtle hops. Body is a bit bitter, somewhat smokey taste is left in the mouth. Ending is roasted malts... in this case though, there’s a bit too much of the "roast". Enjoyable none-the-less.

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.

Had it on draft. Only got two sips of this. From what I drank, it is good and enjoyable, but not much better than your average brown ale. Has a pretty nice rich taste.

Bottle. Dark pour with small head. Sweet, malty, toasty aroma. Well carbonated, smooth palate. Some toasty flavor, slight caramel. Overall my favorite St. George I’ve had so far.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle pour into shaker. Typical nut brown color for a brown ale. The taste was not as typical with a nice hoppiness added to the nuttiness. A decent beer.

Aroma: Caramel and Chocolate with a hint of hops.
Appearance: Cloudy dark brown, almost opaque, with little head. Could be a bad pour, but what head was there was a creamy tan color.
Taste: Medium sweetness with a very light. pleasant bitterness.
Palate: Medium body, creamy texture with soft carbonation. Decent finish, no bad aftertaste.
Overall: Not a standout beer, but certainly drinkable and enjoyable.
