3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle
Aroma: Somewhat hoppy but not overly strong. Some malt present as well.
Appearance: Best head of any of the other St. George’s I have had. Darker than your average golden. Mostly clear with decent carbonation.
Flavor: Hoppy but not overly so with some malt as well a little citrus. Quite nice.
Palate: Finishes rather bitter as I would have expected an ale to.
Overall: Not a bad beer by any stretch. Quite enjoyable overall.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
PPours a four finger cream head that fades to a thin layer leaving some lace. Cloudy amber color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Hoppy nose. Starts hoppy/sweet, but hops take over leaving a strong bitter, lingering aftertaste. Good if you like hops. 12oz bottle gift from Vintage Cellars Blackstone, Va.
Label has the ABV at 5.5%.

Amber, copper colored gold with a thin but creamy white head. Slightly hoppy aroma, citrusy smell. Malty taste with hoppy notes, citrus and piney. Clean finish. Not bad, but far from great.

Wow, this is actually pretty good. I was expecting a blonde ale, but this is a nice little pale ale. Hoppy and crisp. Yum.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From notes: Aroma is very present - all hop though. I even put in my notes this was more of an APA than a golden ale, funny. Yeah so its another in a long line of west coast like APA’s that I have been drinking recently. Nice but becoming too ordinary at the moment.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium amber, this is too dark to really be called a golden. Sharp, musty, herbal hops. Strong enough to shock my expectations. Bitterness pushes the envelope of balance.
