Bottled(500ml). -Pours nice ruby colour with medium size pale beige head and malty nose. The aroma is also very malty and hoppy with notes of herbs and spices. Strong bitter finish. Too much bitterness for my taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Predictably, pours a ruby red colour and has a frothy beige head. Medium bodied with a little carbonation. Clear malty aroma with hoppy undertones. I detected a malty taste but with a somewhat dry and spicy bitter finish. An interesting brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle, Jerusalem Tavern, Farringdon, London, 6 Aug 2007) Ruby red colour with frothy off-white head. Malty nose with wild berries and lovely spicy notes of the Styrian Goldings hops. Malty taste with slightly roasted notes of crystal malt, wild berries, black-currant, bittersweet notes of cranberries and spicy hops in the finish. Very tasty, almost leaning in the American amber ale direction. One of the best St Peters I’ve tried.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yeast and mineral aroma with elements of cream. Deep ruby copper hue. Bold diapperaing cream head. Medium body. Slight carbonation. Heavily hopped, grass-like with malt playing second fiddle. Tinnish lingering taste. Bitter dry finish. Enjoyable but not the best brew from peters that goes to their Best Bitter.

500ml bottle from the brewery. More russet than ruby, with lasting beige head. Hoppy aroma. Wow the Styrian Goldings are really pronounced. Some red berry fruit comes through on the nose. Some choc/coffee in the mouth, carbonation is slightly harsh. It settles down to a warming British beer with excellent levels of hop around it. Fresh. One of my favourite St Peters beers. Top banana. Get’s a 4/5 as I would actively seek this out.
