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.

Indra (2657) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 9, 2006
12oz. bottle. Sweet, toasty, bready dark malt aroma, notes of nutty toffee and cocoa in the nose along with some light earthiness and a slight fruity hop character. Attractive deep mahogany color, clear, with a lasting, fine, light tan head. Flavor profile features the expected caramel sweetness and dark bready maltiness, but is backed by a solid undercurrent of citric hop flavor and spicy bitterness, finishing with suggestions of licorice and hazelnut. Fairly smooth on the palate with a medium body. Very nicely flavorful take on the style. Thanks to Kinz for all these St. George brews!

A fairly decent brown ale with a sweet aroma and strong flavor. Smooth with a sweet, choclolate aftertaste; an enjoyable beer.

bubbleflubber (1853) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2007
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.

bhensonb (11512) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Bottle from Wine Cellar. Smooth nutty, roasted malt aroma. Dark brown color with ruby glints in the thin spots. Tan head that went up and ringed quickly. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Rich smooth dark roasted malt, with a bit of coffee and chocolate. Think there was some dark fruit before the coff and choc kicked in. There is a moderate amount of hop bitter, but the type is submerged in the c&c. Barring the bitter level, this is very like a porter in character. Tastes really good.

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.

ROGUE (2127) - Newark, Delaware, USA - MAR 9, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a deep chestnut brown with a nice half inch off white head that slowly settled. Aroma is dark, roasty malts, toasted nuts, caramel, and cocoa with a hint of piny hops. Flavor is well balanced between roasty, caramel malt, chocolate, and a pleasantly bitter bite of pine and floral hops through the finnish. Body is medium, with a slick, creamy texture and fizzy mouthfeel from the high carbonation.
