3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent Nutty. A little too much dryness for me. Thick off-white head is appreciated with more watery tones. A little more refinement will make this a topper.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle 12oz.) Crystal clear dark amber color with medium, quickly dissipating head. Aroma was sweet malt, caramel, floral, and nutty - strong and very pleasant. The flavor was surprisingly muted compared to the aroma. Taste was sweet up front, followed quickly by nuttiness and a little hop. But the flavor quickly vanished toward the back to seem very watery with almost no aftertaste...talk about anticlimatic. Palate was thin and watery.

Bottle. Strong butternut aroma. Cloudy brown amber color with slight head. Heavy butternut malt flavor - mild hops finish. Not bad - high diacetyls.

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

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
