COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. George Nut Brown Ale is a classic English-style Brown Ale with flavors reminiscent of biscuit and caramel that is well balanced by a mild hop character. This beer was traditionally served in taverns as their house beer. Our Nut Brown Ale is light brown in color with a thick creamy head.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2007 Clear very light brown. Only lightly nutty, doesn’t taste much differnet from their fall bock. A disapointing brown ale.

My least favorite of the otherwise nice St. George brews. Aroma is slightly malty,seems to have a DMS problem, a little nut and malt sweetness, but otherwise just flat

hopscotch (9556) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2006
Bottle... Clear, brilliant copper ale with a small, tight, off-white head. Subtle aroma of toasted nuts, caramel malt and black tea (English golding, fuggle and/or American willamette hops). Refreshing flavor, but there’s not much to it; some light milk chocolate, caramel and unsweetened black tea. Nice balance. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with timid carbonation. Finishes crisp and clean.

SynergyXJ (510) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Bottle. Poured amber color with no head, I had to pour real fast, but still no head. Would be great appearance if it had some head. Very light aroma, slight nut and caramel, not hops. Light flavor as well, and very light palate. Palate is very very smooth, but too thin, feels like water. Definatly not a bad beer, but not awesome.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2006
Amber color. Smell of malt, honey, caramel, nuts and bitter. Taste of malt, little to no hops and nuts and minor alcohol. Dry bitterness at the end. I AM NOT THAT IMPRESSED WITH THE SIX PACK SAMPLER FROM ST. GEORGE.

Bottled as "Nut Brown Ale". A light brown brew with small diminishing foamy white head. Aroma is oats, with notes of pear. Smells sweet. medium sweetness, lightly sour, flavor, medium body, creamy, flat, nutty flavor finishes clean with a soft pepper aftertaste.

aracauna (3145) - Georgia, USA - SEP 21, 2006
Much lighter than the typical brown ale, only really qualifying for a medium (if that) amber. The aroma has some of the required components, such as a vague nuttiness and a bit of caramel. There’s a bit of grain bag dust aroma. The flavor is big enough to surprise given the color, but not one of the best of the style.

hershiser2 (1232) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2006
Bottle. Very light nutty malts in the nose, some bread, and not much else. Lightly bittersweet nutty flavor with a slighly bitter finish. Not much flavor, but not a bad beer.

Bottled under "Nut Brown Ale"... This pour amber into the glass with a nice sudsy head that retains 1/4-inch all the way down. Great sudsy lacing, which I’m beginning to note from most of the St. George line. The nose is of light almonds, pecans and caramel. The flavor is indicative of a nut brown, light nutty, with walnuts and biscuits coming through to the finish. Very drinkable, and goes down quite easily. The finish is somewhat toned down, lightly hopped and quaffable. The big drawback is the watery mouthfeel.... it should have a little more substantial body to it, for me. Nice offering, and I would definitely have another.
