COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. George American Brown Ale is the typical American take on a classic English style.

Dark brown in color with a thick tan head our American Brown Ale is a brewed from a full malt base and is well balanced by a spicy/citrusy hop bitterness.

Bottle. Nice beer. Nutty, with a caramel flavor. It is okay, very malty, and roasty. Thick, but nice.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2006
Nice brown body, very good for a Brown Ale. Minimal to zero head in this brew. Very nice aroma, sweet malts and very subtle hops. Body is a bit bitter, somewhat smokey taste is left in the mouth. Ending is roasted malts... in this case though, there’s a bit too much of the "roast". Enjoyable none-the-less.

bottled. Dark brown w/ very little head. A nice balance of floral hops w/ a heavy malt backbone.

On tap at Blue Light, Charlottesville, VA. Deep brown with a frothyish head. Sweet nutty aroma, dominated by malts, but also has some citrusy hops there. Flavor is full of bitterness, with some grapefruity hops mixed in- just like the aroma. Kinda thick for a brown- but I’m not complaining!

3.7
NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Aroma is pretty nutty and mildly sweet. Dark brown with slight red hues and a thumb thick slowly fading tan head. Flavor is mildly toasted malt int he fore with some sweet and nuttier malt in the middle and finish. Thicker than many porters I have had. Very solid Brown Ale.

GreenDragon (219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2005
This beer pours with a small light brown head on a deep brown body with a walnut like aroma on malts. Nice walnut flavour with a deep bitter finish on a medium body.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Bottle from the dragon pack: Deep cherry color with a light brown head. Light nutty aroma. Slight roasted malt aroma with some light bitterness.

3.5
Suttree (6392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 24, 2005
Chestnut brown, with a nice head. Nice aroma of walnuts and black pepper, with a touch of molasses thrown in. Same elements in the flavor, too - plus a note of toffee. Crisp, mildly hoppy finish. Not bad at all. Sampled at the 2005 Asheville Brewer’s Jam.

a slight nuttiness but overall really lacking in flavor and body. a slight hoppy character as well but no depth.

Not much better than average. I had this one on tap at the Harrisonburg beer and wine festival. It was pretty simple. Good aroma coming off, a nice nutty hoppiness, but it lacked the depth I usually find in better brown ales.
