3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I am a firm lover of brown ales and this one I felt was good in flavor but lacked in other areas. When first pouring this beer the head (at least with this particular bottle) was none existent. It was very small too not really there at all and was fully diminishing. It has a very bold brown color to the beer and tiny but not as lively as I would like to see with its bubbles and fizz. The bubbles just stayed more at the bottom of the glass. The aroma was nice but not long lasting. It had a heavy malt aroma with that grainy sense to it. It in a way almost smelled a bit like wine in a way. When tasting it that malty aroma delivers with a heavy malt flavor with a light bitterness. That bitterness lasts and is present at the end the drink. A hint of smokiness was also detected in the beer. The beer on the palate had a light body and a dry texture. The carbonation was light and with a surprisingly chalky finish. I did like the flavor of this beer, but the aroma, appearance, and palate was sacrificed for it.

At a private tasting in Serbia with markoijelena and luttonm. "Pour it" orange going amber, a bit hazy with a nice foam. Nose: bread notes, a bit of wired feel. Mouth: right bitterness, bit lack of body but ok

Not complex as others St.Peters (ex Honey Porter). A simple Golden Ale, with a balanced bitterness and a slightly aroma of honey/caramel. Not persistence at palate.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
"Surprising slightly skunky light hop aroma. Light bodied. Flavor well balanced between sweetish caramel malt and spicy hops with a bit of pine. Not bad, but a little light and boring. I definitely prefer the darker brews from St peters."
