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.

Aurelius (4107) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2010
Bright, clear, intense citrine without much head. Sweet, malty/graham aroma. Biscuity, light hopping, slightly astringent, muted woodiness. Finish with a sweet woody caste. Drinkable, but unremarkable. On tap, Capital Ale House, Richmond.

GoBlue (104) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2009
pours deep gold color with white head. Aroma is pleasantly fruity and hoppy. Flavor is assertively bitter with an unpleasant harsh edge, almost metallic. If you can ignore that there is some decent malt but overall not my favorite.

Beautiful thick golden color, aroma is slightly sweet and is followed by a very smooth flavor with a hint of fruit. Excellent all around experience!

AlfredtheO (1) - USA - APR 21, 2009 does not count
Almost my favourite colonial beer. It has a good hoppy bite, is not too sweet and has a well balanced flavour overall.

adavis234 (286) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Pours the color of damp straw with a half finger white head. Grassy citrus aroma, not particularly strong. Very sweet and yet bitter taste that seemed rather processed. Easy to drink, but a disappointment nonetheless.

dcb13 (10) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 2, 2009
This was a nice beer. I enjoyed the six pack that I had, and I would buy it again. Nice, smooth finish, and it wasn’t too heavy in my stomach. I plan on visiting the brewery, as I live in Hampton, VA.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 16, 2008
Bottle courtesy of dkachur. Pours gold with a thin white head. Smells of citrus, dry malt, toasted malt. Tastes moderately bitter and dry with some resiny hints.

vyvvy (3949) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Pours light orange with a small blotchy off-white head. The aroma has lots of diacetyl and lightly toasted malt. Medium body with light gentle carbonation. The flavor starts with diacetyl, light dusty spicy hops, then cardboard, dirty caramel and off-sourness. The finish is pretty stale tasting. I got this from a store that’s been open for about two weeks, otherwise I wouldn’t even rate this as being in too bad of shape. This is terrible.

nick76 (4212) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2008
The aroma is grassy and malty with a hint of lemon. The appearance is amber with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma with a bitter finish. The palate is smooth. Overall an OK beer.
