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.

Bottle from State Line. Pours hazy deep copper with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is huge Wheaties dipped in honey almonds and walnuts. Flavor is nuttier than Charles Manson, with a huge interlayered amount of nuts, including almond, walnut, hazelnut, pecan, brazil nut, plus a heavy corn flakey flavor. This one has a taste profile that is somewhat similar to Celebrator, only this one is nuttier and doesn;t have the boldness or heft of palate of Celebrator. If I could find a case of this, Id buy it. Id stock this year round if I could. Its that damned good.

Labeled as nut brown ale, but apparently these are the same according to this site. Anyway, i always like brown ales, and this is definitly very nice. Best thing about this is the rich nutty taste. Try it out.

Had this one bottled in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, under the alias "Nut Brown Ale". Nice light brown pour with a good white head, nice nose of oatmeal and peanuts, and excellent chocolate malt and hops balanced throughout. Very nice!

Braudog (5574) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2007
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)

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.

Well, its not only available on tap. The_beer_god sent this to me, and I am very glad. This is a classic cross of a more American nutty Brown ale and a sourish English version. Nice head, but dissapates quickly. Exceptionally sourdoughy yeast, nice malt with bread but sweet. Nutty, but very fresh. Natural. Slightly thin, yet no traces of cardboardy oxidation at all. A nice surprise! The body was totally sufficient to carry what is really a fresh and fragile beer.

Bottle: As Nut Brown Ale. Nutty flavor, as would be expected. Malty, a slight bitter flavor.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2006
Bottle. Clear light brown colour with a little fine head. Nice aroma of caramel, nuts-like and note of malt. Flavour of nuts, caramel and malt. Ends up with a dry finish. Good tasty and malty mouthfeel.

Cask@GBBF2011 (as St. George Nut Brown Ale). Deep amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is fruits, wood, some raisins, strong spruce and pine needles as well. Flavour is bready and biscuity malts along with some caramel and wooden bitterness. Also some slight toasted notes towards the finish.

From a St. george Brewery Sampler Pack I bought in Richmond. <P> Aroma is very hard to pick up. Muted sweet malts is all I can detect. Almost transparent amber in color. Beautiful head fades very fast. Flavor is pretty nice. Very nutty, but with some white grape sweetness. The malt side is very bready/muffin like. I think the flavor is very nice, but this is thin which ruins the the good will created by the nice flavor.
