Overall would rate a better beer if it were an amber or a light brown ale. It is very very light in flavor and color for a brown ale and also lacks nut brown qualities, especially in the nose. On the plus side, does have more flavor than the average amber but retains the "drinkability" of a lighter beer.
Poured from the tap in Chester, VA. Odd BA says it’s retired but the keg tasted fresh.
Aroma- Malt, caramel and hops.
Appearance- A really nice dark copper color. Had a large off-white head.
Taste- I really enjoyed the flavor. A good mix of malt and fruit.
Palate- A medium to heavy brew with moderate carbonation. Has a dry finish.
Overall- Very nice beer, one of my favorite English Brown Ales. FROTHINGSLOSH (8069) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an overcarbonated orange-caramel color with an enormous foamy beige head that lingered and left a bit of lacing.The aroma was cola, cherry, molasses and yeast. The flavor was very yeasty and bready with nut, caramel, and a hint of cherry. Medium length finish. Medium body. Very overcarbonated. tnkw01 (1788) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Tap. Light brown, medium head. Aroma is light grains, malt and bread. Taste is slightly sweet up front with a crisp, bitter finish. kidobutai (696) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Good offering from St George. Poured from a bottle. Nice caramel color (preview of things to come). Not the thick head promised in the description. Creamy although no lacing. Slightly bitter on the finish. edgallow (4376) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 15, 2014

3/28/14. 12oz bottle in a free beer week box thanks to dfhhead! Clear light brown pour with a very small tan head that fades to a ring and laces just barely throughout the glass. Nice aroma, nutty, biscuit, a touch of chocolate - reminds me of Fat Tire in a way. Not bad. The aroma disappoints a touch, sweet, malty, nutty, doughy, biscuits, a touch of caramel and butterscotch.

Keg @ Beer Run. The pour’s medium brown with a small head. The nose is of baked apple, toasted brown bread. Roasted nuts. The taste is a bit more objectionable. Lactic sourness. Quite buttery too. Bitter apples. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Not good. Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2013
