COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available brewery conditioned and cold filtered in 500ml bottles. Cask: Special - 2011 JDW Autumn Beer Festival.
"English Halcyon malts are used together with lager malts. Golding hops provide the bitterness and aroma. The result is a highly distinctive light, golden ale similar in character to a full bodied Czech lager."

I had heard nothing but good things about this brewery. I was a bit disappointed here. A little bitter, but still a solid brew. It just didn’t bowl me over. The bottle was the most unique shape. While this brew was really nothing special, I look forward to trying their winter ale (which has been described by many as the best they’ve ever had).

slowrunner77 (5942) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
"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."

See: Pale gold. No head. Light lacing. Smell: Malt, biscuits Taste: Sweet malt. Hoppy bitterness towards end. Pallet: Light carbonation. Thin mouthfeel. Lingering bitterness at the end. Ok, middle of the road. More largery than ale. Nothing special, quite forgettable really.

Lore (1105) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 6, 2014
golden colour, not too much, not too dense white head;aroma of bread, some caramel, maybe honey and grassy notes; taste of malty sweetness, some bitterness and cardboard...well, not really convincing beer - only its colour is notable
