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 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.

one bottle from my trip to OBX í06í. This beer pours with a small light brown head on a deep brown body with a nut like aroma on malts. Nice nut flavor with a deep bitter finish on a medium body.

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 donít mend well together.

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. Thereís nothing misplaced about it. Nice dryness, toffee. Reminds of a thin Mackelson.

This was the best of the dragon six pack I got from them. Better than the rest, but not up to par. Pours brown with a soapy tan head. The aroma is dusty and dirty with some roasty / toasty aspects, basement mustiness and light coffee bitterness. Medium body that’s lightly slick with gentle carbonation. The flavor starts a bit watery with dark malt and light nuttiness. The finish has a bit of spice and a touch of butter. Fair. The thing that is amusing to me is I was sitting next to two people chatting at a bar, one of which being a rep for St. George - he was talking about the importance of quality in the beer. Seriously. The six pack I got was from a very reputable store that had only been open two weeks. Frustrating.

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.

Amber brown color. Moldy cheese and maple malt nose. Slick and oily up front, more coarse grains in the finish. Flavor of maple, bacon fact, light wood. An OK brown ale, nothing spectacular.

kramer (4860) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear ruby brown body with a one finger fizzy beige head that had decent retention. Nutty and slightly grainy nose with some nice chocolate notes. Kinda grainy with a underlying cooked veggie note though. The flavor is mostly nutty malt and moderate bitter hops that come out on the back end with some cocoa notes. A little muddled. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with fizzy moderate carbonation. Just another below average Brown Ale. Not a whole lot of character here.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle. Appearance: Almost black with small ruby highlights. It has a small, foamy, light tan head. Poor head retention. Aroma: Very nutty with nice roasted notes and even a hint of chocolate. Taste: Definitely on the roasty side, but a little thin on the body. Earthy with hints of mineral and coffee. I didnít get the spicy/citrus hop bitterness they talk about. The flavor isnít bad, but it lacks a punch. Palate: Medium carbonation with a medium, slightly watery mouthfeel. Medium-long, roasty finish. Just kind of meh. Overall: A very average brown ale that is pretty forgettable. You arenít missing anything if you donít have this one.
