COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. George American Brown Ale is the typical American take on a classic English style. This beer exhibits an assertive American hop character overlying a malty richness which lends it a slightly sweet, toasty flavor and aroma. 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.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle. Appearance: Almost black with small ruby highlights. It has a small, foamy, light tan head. Poor head retention. Aroma: Very nutty with nice roasted notes and even a hint of chocolate. Taste: Definitely on the roasty side, but a little thin on the body. Earthy with hints of mineral and coffee. I didnt get the spicy/citrus hop bitterness they talk about. The flavor isnt bad, but it lacks a punch. Palate: Medium carbonation with a medium, slightly watery mouthfeel. Medium-long, roasty finish. Just kind of meh. Overall: A very average brown ale that is pretty forgettable. You arent missing anything if you dont have this one.

Aurelius (5158) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Tea brown, bad clipart label. Dry, grassy, yeasty-graham aroma. Graham cracker sweetness, medium bitterness, light astringency. Blind, I would have guessed that this was a Vienna. Some faint cherry tones in the finish. Medium body. Meh - kinda minor league. On tap, Capital Ale House, Richmond.

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

Nice dark brown body. Aroma was a little metallic. Nutty, very similar to their porter but without the chocolaty taste.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2004
Draft. Virtually no aroma detectable. Medium brown, OK head. Slight vegetal hop bitterness, medium to thinnish malt body without distinctive flavor. Not the best beer.
