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.

This had the Nut Brown label from the sampler pack. Amber color with a thick khaki colored head. Nose of wet grains and table sugar. Sweet beer with lots of malt syrup and white sugar, some roast grains, a few earthy notes and faint smoke in the finish. Not a very interesting beer.

Bottle is labeled Nut Brown Ale. Pours a clear amber body with a tall ecru head. Aroma of citrusy hops and caramel. A bit of nuttiness as it warms. Taste is caramel, toffee, toasted almonds, and a citrusy hop bitterness. Solid drinker but more of an amber than a brown.

kramer (4694) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a watery looking brownish amber body with a minimal wispy brown head. Yucky cooked celery nose, surprise! Can’t even get any nuttiness or malt at all past it. There’s a touch of coffee though. The flavor is watery and weak with some very light grainy and nutty malt. A little hop bitterness but not much. This is just incredibly thin, watery, and boring with light fizzy carbonation. At least the veggies were mostly on the nose, and not in the flavor. Then again, there wasn’t much flavor at all.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle labeled as St. George Nut Brown Ale. Appearance: Slightly hazy amber with a very small, foamy, white head. The head is gone in a split second. Aroma: Very nutty with notes of almonds and hazelnuts. Throw in some caramel and a slight touch of chocolate too. No hop prescience to be found. Taste: Solidly nutty. Light caramel notes, hazelnut, and a light bitterness. This one is fairly straightforward and pretty basic. Palate: Medium carbonation with a medium-light mouthfeel. Short, nutty finish. Overall: A pretty run of the mill nut brown that is extra nutty! Rebuy: Nah. Worth trying, but nothing great.

On tap in Colonial Williamsburg. Served in a beer stein but upon tossing a bit into a clear glass this is actually a fairly light amber with a two finger, frothy, white head that has excellent retention and lacing surprisingly. But does not look like a brown ale... Aroma is a little soy sauce, bready malt, and caramel. Taste is buttery, creamy on the palate with some spicy hops, rye bread, and toasted biscuit. I actually liked this a lot. Very simple, clean, moderately heavy, and just a great buttery palate. Yummy. Loses point because it’s not a brown ale. Ahem.

Overall would rate a better beer if it were an amber or a light brown ale. It is very very light in flavor and color for a brown ale and also lacks nut brown qualities, especially in the nose. On the plus side, does have more flavor than the average amber but retains the "drinkability" of a lighter beer.

In the bottle from Inari Wines. Amber in color with a medium off white head. This is an interesting brew. Doesn’t seem to fit the style, but fairly tasty. Good caramel and butterscotch flavors, but no nuttiness. Not much of a roasted character at all. Smooth palate.

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark copper. Aroma is malts with a hint of caramel and a sweet, nector note. Taste is malty and overly sweet. Not a great beer.

Bottle courtesy of dkachur. Pours copper with a nice rocky white head. Smells of tea, caramel, dry malt. Tastes earthy and sweet with a doughy finish.
