Another root beer pour that gets better with a little warmth. Nose is full of bready and roasted malt character. Palate continues in that vein with a decent carbonation. Solid effort from a new to me brewer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Toast and buttered bread nose. Nutty wood and barkdust scent. Slicky, watery, plain and boring palate. Decent light wood, light maple, burnt chip and potato flavor, not really anything special and not your typical brown ale, really everything about this is ’meh’.

2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This beer was purchased as part of the St. George "Dragon pack", six different varieties available from the brewer. The nose was a delicious honey and nuts, brazil nut and peanut. It is copper colored with a small white head, with good clarity. The taste fell flat. There were no discernible flavors, with just a very slight hint of hops at the finish. I hope the brewery will rework this beer, because it has potential. I wasn’t terribly impressed.

Bottle. Pours amber-copper with small off-white head. The aroma is caramel malts, just a touch of fruitiness, and an ever-so-slight hint of wet boots. The flavor is much the same, with the addition of some hop notes, though nothing very distinct. A faint note of peanut butter comes through once in a while. Nothing spectacular.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear copper appearance with a small, white head and modest lacing. Malty, earthy aroma; some caramel. Pedestrian taste is fairly well hopped and helps balance the initial maltiness. Medium-bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel. Nutty aftertaste.

Under the Nut Brown Bottled Lable. This ale is the least distinct of the St Gs that I have had thus far. However, it does make for a nice malt forward session beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2008 Under the Nut Brown label. Clear medium brown with an average head. Light toffee aroma. Toasty, yet sweet, flavor ... hint of caramel, but not very much. Nuttines is there as well. Nice plaseant, if light, brown ale. (#2637 - 1/6/07)
