COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. George Golden Ale is based on an old British recipe, but with an American twist - a slightly sweet, malty flavor with a citrusy finish. It has a thick, creamy head and is golden amber in color.

Completely of the earth...wonderful beer goodness in the aroma, malt and bittering hops. An overall bitterness in the mouth that is not overpowering, but very nice. I get very little fruit or citrus components, just a well-made beer - OK, a hair of sweetness from the malt upon warming. Still quite bitter. And good. Danke urb, this is a good brewery to champion.

Assuredly not their best brew but it is drinkable none-the-less. CCloudy yellow with a large white head. Flowery aroma and a similar taste.

Light and fruity with just enough bitterness. Definitely in the West Coast light ale tradition (Full Sail Golden Ale springs to mind). I affirmatively enjoy this beer, which amazes me, given that this is an essentially ’training wheels’ beer style.

This is a very clear beer with an appropriate golden color. The head lasted a few seconds, but what is left is hanging in there. The palate is malt driven with a touch of dryness in the finish. Overall, an enjoyable rounded Ale.

A good beer but would be better without the citrusy flavor. Close to a pale ale. ;)

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2002
Surprised at the hoppiness of this one. Has a very prevalent Cascade-ish citrusy quality to it. More pale than golden. Nothing particularly interesting, but not bad.

A nice, enjoyable APA with a solid hop presence and a floral hop nose. Malt backbone a little slight, but it still manages a great flavor and a clean, moderately bitter finish. Clear golden in color (duh...) with a medium head. A fairly standard APA.

It is as it is described.Or as my wife would say,’A rather inoffensive little beer.’

More of a pale than a golden ale. Hoppy aroma, and the flavor followed suit. It’s pretty one-dimensional, really. Not bad, not great, just okay.

Really didn’t know what to expect when i ordered this. Ale or lager?... I was left to guess. Turned out to be an ale, a pale ale in fact, that really didn’t appear to be golden at all. Dark amber is more fitting. Anyway, it had a fairly strong hop odor, and a short but strong bitter hop flavor. Flavor didn’t seem to linger for too long. I really didn’t taste much else. Ok, but not my favorite style of beer.
