St. Peter’s English Ale

3

Brewery: St. Peter’s Brewery

Type: Organic English Ale

ABV: 4.5%

Appearance / Aroma: Bright and citrusy aroma. The malt notes are actually even a bit sour and bright as well. Fairly pale in color with moderate cloudiness.

The head didn’t develop a whole lot and receded down to a thin layer on top that’s sticking around for a bit.

Taste / Feel: Taste initially reminds me a lot of a good Heineken. Bright and tangy, with a clean body. It develops after that and some interesting malt begins to show through. The malt is a bit creamy and has a good oatmeal grain flavor.

Towards the end there’s a bit of bitterness threatening but it disappears quickly.

The exhale and aftertaste are pretty clean. There may actually be a slight hint of something burnt. It’s strange, almost as if a single piece of malted barley was slightly burnt and tarnished the entire batch. Oddly, I don’t necessarily find it offensive.

Overall, it’s a decent beer however I was hoping for a bit more.

    This bottle makes me giggle. I don’t know why. I am having a hard time taking it serious. Like it’s an old bootleggers medicine bottle? Like someone would pass it to me and tell me it’ll cure m’scurvy.
