Clear copper color with a tiny white head. Hoppy grapefruit aroma followed by more zippy citrus and honey flavors. Very bitter finish with a strange chalky aftertaste. jasonp (1581) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - DEC 1, 2004
Pours a nice clear copper with a white head. Sweet malt and light floral qualities in the nose. Toasty malts, caramel, toffee, citrus and honey make up the taste. Medium light hops on the back end. Pleasantly sweet and robust/full bodied. Very full, round and creamy on the palate. Good stuff. DarkElf (3067) - La Jolla, California, USA - NOV 14, 2004
(12 oz bottle, obtained in trade with jasonp, thanks Jason!) I was originally saving this for a golden/blond ale tasting session, but I’m glad I threw this in with an APA session because this is way darker and more flavorful than American golden/blond ales. Don’t be fooled by the name. It’s hard to describe this beer, and I don’t think it falls neatly into any specific category. The unusual nose is difficult to describe fully, but it’s malty, a bit sweet and toasty, very earthy, kind of (brown) mushroomy. It smells alcoholic, but I know it isn’t. Bold flavor is quite malty, mildly sweet, and again, there’s that hard-to-describe earthiness. Bitter hops is kept to a minimum, staying far in the background. Medium bodied. The hops is most evident in the palate, keeping it somewhat crisp in the finish. Dark golden, light amber color, with fine particles suspended in the beer. Off-white head gradually fades to a sheen. Hardly any lacing. Very interesting beer, and definitely worth trying. 5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 25, 2004
Bottle pours deep golden, translucent, small white pancake batter like head, soft carbonation, with fairly attractive lacing.   Malts, barley, slightly sweet on the nose.   Malty, slightly sweet, with hints of honey on the tongue.   Medium body, thin mouthfeel.   Finishes with a bit of grains, slightly sweet yet slightly sour.   Meh... average.

Appearance: a hazy pale orange, the perfect match of a tangerine hide, with a short, slim white head.
Aroma: spicy, citric, a little sour, little hops, much yeast
Taste: Very light in every regard, in body, texture, and flavor, which is largely mild and citric, predominantly yeasty and malty, not a stitch of hops. Fruit, mostly citrus, some orange, with a hint of spice remains the major character in the flavor, and the mouthfeel is slick, but still delicate. Nice drinking , though, smooth, if slight. An easily consumed ale, but lacking in the things (hops, just to name one) that might move me, nice session brew, perhaps.

The way I describe the color os this is brownish green- though my companions said they saw no green. I guess it’s more of a deeper honey/olivish color. Small head. Smells of yeast and honey. Tastes the same- lots of yeastiness all over. Malty. crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2004
Sweet floral aroma. Flavor is sweet with some citrus hops. A good ale. Nothing to go crazy about, but I would drink one of these any time. Gotta support my local brews. DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2004
Pours dark straw with a good white head and nice lacing. Aroma of malt, white wine, hops, and some honey. Tastes malty, with hops, and a nice fruity, honey finish. This is a very complex and bold golden ale, with some pale/IPA qualities to it. Worth seeking out, as are all the St. George beers. wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Orange-gold with small white head and nice lacing. Aroma of citrus, straw and sweetness. Hops hit you up front, and stay with you through the end and the aftertaste. A bit much on the straw flavor. Slightly sweet taste but almost undetectable. Zeswaft (1785) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Good beer. Nothing spectacular, but a solid APA. Medium hopiness. Tasty and refreshing.
