A: Dark, deep ruby. Beautiful. Surprisingly, very little head with this one.
S: Wow, fruity, peary, plumish, and in all honesty regal (if you can call that a scent). The scent is actually quite strong, but balanced with the above fruity sweetness and the darker complexion of the beer malts.
T: Fantastic. Pear and banana hit the sweet spot. There are hints of hops, so it is not all consumingly sweet; quite balanced. Malty, but not so much that you are consumed with yeasty flavor. Overall, strong but balanced.
M: Full bodied, clean, dry, mild carbonation. I am not a fan of extreme carbonation, so this is just fantastic. Alcohol is strong; makes a good beer by the fireplace.
Fantastic local Houston brew. Will be getting this again next Autumn.

Saint Arnold Icon Gold has a thin, cream-colored head, a clear, deep, brilliant, caramel appearance, a few ascending bubbles, and not much lacing left behind. The aroma is of rich, pungent, dense, caramelized candi sugar, medium-roasted barley malt, cilantro, and black pepper. Taste is of spicy, sweet, rich, caramel, brown bread crust, a slight bitterness, butter, banana filling, and sugar. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Saint Arnold Icon Gold finishes sweet, semi-dry, rich, and somewhat cloying. This a great beer, and I highly recommend it!
