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.

Solid mahogony color with a big ol’ creamy head, so casually wasted down the drain by the ditzy bartender at an otherwise good beer bar in Hampton VA. This was nutty and woody, smooth, with a bitter edge. Classic brown ale.

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.

Very dark color for a brown ale. The pour produced no head despite my best efforts. It had a pronounced and delightful aroma, more typical of a stout. Unlike a stout however, it was not heavy or thick. It bears quite a resemblance to Sam Adams Black Lager, which I rated recently. The flavor is much more smoky and finishes with a nice hop kiss. I was very pleased. Brewed locally, I can get it in the local Farm Fresh grocery store.

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.

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!

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.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing remained speckling around the sides of the glass. The smell was rich and roasty through a nice nutty caramel blend. Light cocoa in the background. The taste was enthusiastically sweet nutty and had a nice caramel to cocoa blend underneath. On the palate, it sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation was pretty smooth. There was a nice creamy richness coating my tongue. Overall, this was a really nice brown ale that I would have again.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with a medium tan/light brown head that dissipates quickly with lacing. Aroma is chocolate and a nutty/smoky note. The taste is smokey; much like a porter in body and flavor, with strong nutty malts and a bit of hop bitterness. All in all a good brown ale.

Aroma is pretty nutty and mildly sweet. Dark brown with slight red hues and a thumb thick slowly fading tan head. Flavor is mildly toasted malt int he fore with some sweet and nuttier malt in the middle and finish. Thicker than many porters I have had. Very solid Brown Ale.

Bottle. A very nutty malt aroma. Dark opaque brown with slight head. Smoke and creamy nutty malt flavor with moderate lemon hops finish. A good brew.
