Bottle sampled. Pours amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of nuts, caramel, and toasted malts. the flavor is sweet, caramel, toasted malts, nuts, and a slight trace of hops in the finish. PorterPounder (8359) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Columbia, SC - Green’s Discount Beverages - 12 oz bottle - labeled as Nut Brown Ale - part of a mixer six pack. Murky, dark orange pour with little to no head - rather lifeless. Sweet chocolately aroma, its only saving grace. Funky house taste that I have picked up in most of these St. George brews - not quite phenholic - but edging in that vicinity. Some choolate notes, some nuttiness. Mouthfeel on the thin side. Losing my patience with this brewer after 4 out of the 6 from the mixer being less than stellar.

Feeling a bit silly for having had this in the fridge for a while without having rated it. Nut brown ale packaging. Medium amber with an orange tint, not very brown ale like, with a slight head. Aroma is faintly malty. Flavor is much more like a light nut brown, Newcastle inspired, with a bit of nuts and a slight vegetable hop finish. Not a knock out, but better than I described here. morrdt (715) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - JUN 16, 2007
Bottle which is a part of their "Dragon Pack", is labeled Nut Brown Ale. Aroma is a bit nutty with hops. Pours a copper color with a small head. The taste wasn’t very memorable, hops at the end, but that was about it. Meh. bryandhargrave (165) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2007
My bottle was labeled but brown ale and ratebeer took me to this.... this beer certainly tastes likes nuts and is very earthy though it doesnt look or taste very brown at all. goes down easy and smooth. i will drink it again.

(draft) Crystal clear amber body with creamy off-white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, apricot, toasted. Taste is medium sweet, toasted caramel, light earthy. Light-medium body, light stickiness. Holdwine (1240) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2007
Another root beer pour that gets better with a little warmth. Nose is full of bready and roasted malt character. Palate continues in that vein with a decent carbonation. Solid effort from a new to me brewer. sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 12, 2007
12oz bottle. Ruby amber and filtered. Nutty malty aromas. Medium bodied and toasty. Burnt malt flavor. Spicy aromas. Nutty and caramel. Bready sweet. Good flavor. Mildly lively. Drinkable! 3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2007
Toast and buttered bread nose. Nutty wood and barkdust scent. Slicky, watery, plain and boring palate. Decent light wood, light maple, burnt chip and potato flavor, not really anything special and not your typical brown ale, really everything about this is ’meh’. obguthr (6829) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2007
This beer was purchased as part of the St. George "Dragon pack", six different varieties available from the brewer. The nose was a delicious honey and nuts, brazil nut and peanut. It is copper colored with a small white head, with good clarity. The taste fell flat. There were no discernible flavors, with just a very slight hint of hops at the finish. I hope the brewery will rework this beer, because it has potential. I wasn’t terribly impressed.
