A rich, red ale with subtle malt undertones and a distinctive spicy hop aroma from Styrian Goldings. Brewed with skill and patience in one of Britain’s finest small breweries.

HogcliffeLenny (162) - Christchurch, Dorset, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2007
Bottle 500ml. Is it me, or do many of the St Peter’s brews taste the same? This one pours a mahogany red colour, with a small loose head. It has a hint of caramel in the aroma but little else. My opening tasting notes are of “old egg boxes” but this is soon beaten off with a bitterness that can only be described as overwhelming. Once the bitterness had kicked in, I could not really taste anything else and I certainly could not describe this as complex. This ale is pretty one dimensional, really.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2007
Poured dark copper with a moderate foam head leaving some lacing. Berries, some sugar and caramel in the scent. Oily mouthfeel, very sour. At first, I just got spices and liquorice, and wasn’t impressed, but it became more fruity with berries noticeable after a few mouthfulls.

thewolf (11496) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2007
Bottle @ Cockney Pub, Aarhus. Pours a deep red with a small creamy lacing yellowish head. Aroma is mild, but feels like a mild barley wine in its power. There are honey, oak and toffee tones aplenty. Surprisingly full mouthfeel and equally surprisingly powerful taste. There are touches of apple amidst the oakyness and caramel. Finish is very dry and quite bitter. Probably one of the best session beers I’ve had.

Bottle. Light malty aroma with cinnamon. Malty flavor with hints of licorice, salt and butterscotch. Licorice in the slightly bitter aftertaste. Nice ale.

Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2007
Bottled. Amber/brown beer. Citrussy grapefruit aromas with some licorice and some faint coffee (roasted malt). Earthy, grassy, hayish and floral hop-taste, some licorice and some malt. Finishes long, very bitter with some licorice and drying out grassy-hop. Very dry and nice bitter.

jbrus (4991) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2007
Bottled. Floral aroma with hint of raisin and caramel. Dark amber color, beige head, good lace. Bittersweet, perfume, raisin, nasty bitter finish. Soft mouthfeel but a bit harsh finish. I really like the perfume and stuff but the bitterness is too harsh for such a beer.
