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.

Bottle. Pours deep gold with light, white head. Aroma of citrus, apricot, sourdough, and woody vegetable stems. Up-front malty taste, (light, pasta-like malts) with dry, hoppy finish and cereal aftertaste. Even-handed, not too exciting.

Somewhat better than the lager, this one is a little more yellow in color. Has a pretty nice hop kick to it. Goes pretty good with the fish I ate, but as far as I can tell these beers are mostly just mediocre and not really outstanding. Drinkable, but not worth getting again.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - APR 26, 2006
Bottled. Golden to orange with a rather short white head. Aroma is a bit spicy and citrus. Thin body and taste are somewhat reminiscent of mainstream lagers, but with more hops. Clean finish with some pine in it. This would be a great beer to go with BBQ. Strong enough to hold it’s own with spicy food but still refreshing; and with enough hops content to keep your brother-in-law the Bud Lite drinker away from your beer.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 18, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Numenor: Pours a clear bronze copper with a thin, wispy white head. Aroma of lightly toasted pale malt, some earthy hops and a touch of sugar. Body starts lightly sweet and malty, balanced with a decent amount of bittering hops. Finishes sticky and bittersweet. A decent APA, but could use more flavor and aroma hops.

12-ounce bottle. Nice forward malt attack of no particular distinction; clean hop finish. Another brick in the wall separating us from megalagers, but probably about my 750th favorite beer of all time. Looked at another way, it’s a nearly flawless beer that suffers only by dint of such adventurous, interesting competition for drinking time.

Excellent gold coloring for the body, medium ivroy head. Malt accents in the aromas with a strong cirtus flavoring.

Medium white head on a golden body. Sweet malt aroma. Sweet malty flavor that goes down quite well.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Aroma comes off soapy and herbal to me. Color is copper with a firm, lasting, thumb thick white head. The commercial description says it all: a slightly sweet, malty flavor with a citrusy finish. Although I would add there is an ever so slight spiciness in the finish that i think would accompany hearty foods like meats, burgers or Buffalo Wings VERY well.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Clear golden body with a sudsy, white head. Surprisingly aromatic with some warm toastiness and an impression of coarse, earthy English hops. Some nice fresh malt character but the beer is mostly dry with prominent hops that provide wood stem flavors and crisp bitterness. A nice, enjoyable session ale.

The beer was fair. This was my second Golden the weekend I had it, and this was 10 times better, yet this ale is far from a "good" beer in my opinion. There are many APAs out there... I think I will continue my quest for the bigger and better.
