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.

12oz bottle. Filtered and clear. Golden amber hued. Honey caramel sweet aromas. Medium bodied with a good sized bitter flavor. Cookie malts. Bitter hops with a sweet yeast lingering finish. Off-dry palate. Well bittered with a toasty cocoa note. Session.

Well to APA style, not to "golden ale" (molson?) specs. Hoppy in a not too overt way, with floral notes popping up at once. Apricot tones with other dried fruit. Quite good.

The bouquet was particularly strong and fruity hops dominate. The pour lacked any sort of head and was a pleassant red tinted gold. The flavor was well hopped, a bit yeast, and stayed a little too long.

3fourths (8238) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2007
Clear dark amber red colored body. Nose is some sweaty mold hops, some burnt honey and butter. Flavor is similar, pretty much what you expect when you pick up a bottle of a US micros “golden ale”. Sweet and slimy palate, some light bitterness in the finish, some coarse corn and other grains. Not a good beer really.

guzzler67 (1529) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 12, 2007
Clear, bright amber/gold appearance with a small off white head. Grassy, slightly toasted, light floral aroma. Moderately sweet taste, decently hopped, with a good malt backbone. The term "golden ale" instilled a preconceived idea of a sweet, adjunct laden, barely passable style, but this is much better than the expectations and works quite well as an APA.

hopdog (9189) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2007
12oz bottle acquired in trade with The_Beer_God (thanks!). Poured a medium and a cyrstal clear amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of citrus (lemons and grapefruits), bready, and some cookie dough. Tastes of caramel and citrus. Tastes and body on the thinner side.

Just didn’t like it. Too bitter for my taste and much more than I expected from anything named "golden"

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Bottle. Pours copper with a slight haze and ivory head. The aroma is quite malty with burnt sugar, some faint melony fruitiness, and a strange chemical hint. The flavor is burnt sugar, dry leaves, and some dates. The finish is dry with pepper and bitter acorn. This really isn’t at all what I was expecting, but was a bit of a pleasant surprise. Interesting.

Clear orange-amber with a brief but sizeable and sticky white head. Expressive floral and grapefruit nose, sweet and lovely. Medium-bodied, with relatively low carbonation. Flavors are dry but not terribly bitter. They never veer towards real sweetness, but they hint at it with some notes of fruit. Notes of yeast also appear from time to time, adding complexity. The finish features a suggestion of apricot and even greater intensity of flavor than the entry and mid-palate. A pleasurable, flavorful, and somewhat characterful brew that plays well above its ABV.

brigg (521) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 10, 2006
(bottle 12oz) Clear, light amber color. Very small, creamy white head. Aroma is very floral, as well as grassy, and malt. Flavor is medium sweet citrus fruit and floral, along with what starts out to be a light-to-medium hop bitterness that turns strongly bitter on the back and in the after taste. Medium to full body. Doesn’t seem to fit the style as expected but a good beer; refreshing. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the St. George beers.
