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.

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.

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.

Fifth beer of the sixer. This is starting to make me think this six pack is just a joke on me. This bottle is labeled as a ’nut brown ale’????? What???? Since when does a nut brown ale pour light brown amber with a beige head. Light amber does not equal brown. The aroma has light toasted malt that’s pretty faint along with some diacetyl - that’s it for the aroma, just butter and underlying malt. The body is light with soft gentle carbonation. The flavor starts with very lightly toasted malt, light spice and lightly sweet orange citrus. The finish has artificial sweetener taste. This is merely fair, but still better than others from the mixed six I got from them.

on tap-pours a thin white head and amber color. Aroma is medium malt-caramel, some fruit, earthy hops. Taste is medium malt-caramel, some fruit, earthy hops. Slightly nutty/dry as I get further in.

The aroma is nutty with caramel, hops, and malt. The appearance is red brown with a smaller head. The flavor is bitter sweet with caramel and toffee being the dominate tastes. The palate is thin. Overall very decent.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 9, 2008
From dkachur via trade. Poured tan, not brown into my shaker glass. The head was off-white, one finger tall and produced minimal lacing. The aroma was lots of malt with a very little bit of sweetness and nut. A little bit of citrus as well. The flavor was malt, nuts and light citrus. The mouthfeel was thin and overall it was the very definition of "meh".

Draft at Colonial Downs Rhythm, Bets,and Brews Fest. Clear dark golden/amber but not brown. Very slight roast and carmelized malt aroma. Light carmelized malts and nutttiness dominate flavor with a touch of roast. Moderate hop bitterness with low carbonation. Medium body with slightly sweet roast finish. Quite tasty
