Very smooth ale that suited the roast dinner. Light enough to be easy to drink but full flavored with Yuletide tastes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Butelka Bursztynowa barwa, piana średnio obfita, drobna z trwałym kożuchem. Zapach: skórka pomarańczowa, chleb z rodzynkami, suszone owoce, przyprawy. W smaku przypalony karmel, nieco owoców, lekkie rodzynki, jakaś minimalna czekolada. Goryczka niska, trawiasta. bardzo obiecujący zapach i przeciętny, jakby zwietrzały, utleniony smak.

mgajdaczewa (482) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 10, 2014
Bardzo fajne świąteczne piwko, w aromacie dominują imbir, piernik, ale wcale nie jest jednoznacznie na słodko. W smaku odczucie w ustach podobne do angielskiego bittera, lekka metaliczność, mimo 7% dość wodniste, ale piernikowa słodycz doskonale się wpasowała. Rozgrzewanie pojawia się na finiszu, wraz ze średnią, ziołową goryczką. Udane, choć nie przepłacałbym za nie.

janubio (403) - SPAIN - MAR 6, 2014
500 ml. syrup-like bottle. Pours an amber colour, with a thin head that fades soon, leaving a thin lace. Smell of whisky or barrel aged beer, dried fruits, prunes. Medium body, sticky palate and average carbonation. Taste of oak aged brew, toffee, figs, dried fruits. Maybe some pepper too.

Fin (7349) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle courtesy of dad at his house, Rawson Green, Kilburn, Derbyshire (cheers dad!), Friday 21st February 2014 Ruby appearance with a nice pittle glint and an off-white head. I’ve not had a St Peters beer for quite a while so was quite interested to try this one and pleased to find I actually rather enjoyed it. Malty and a little sweet on the nose with a little nuttiness. In the mouth it is fruity but predominantly dark fruits a bit bready sort of bread puddingy with some spiciness showing. A nice beer. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4

Palme (3284) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2014
0.5l bottle. Floating clear and dark nuttybrown almost amber colored in the glass with a minimum amount of a bubbly light beige quickly fading top. On the nose this is light nutty, notes of cake perhaps with a light roasted coffee tone as well. Also I get a toffee sweetness and a little bit of nutmeg and yeast. Not bad at all. Tastes alright as well. Nice and malt sweet all the way. It’s full bodied with a good oily mouthfeel and an average carbonation level. It’s actually not hard to taste the alcohol here and that bitter almost roasted coffee touch found in the aroma sticks in the taste also. Yeasty finish with more bitter nuts. Not bad at all, one of the better I’ve had from these guys. 16.11.2013
