Bottled. Ruby red colour with minor beige head. Sweet sugar and malts in aroma. Flavour the same with a big grassyish and fruity finish. A bit acidic too. Aroma was nice, but the rest was quite a boredom.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 9, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2009 (Bottled) Darkish amber with a smallish, lightly tanned head. Aroma of stuffy plastic and hints of red currant. Currants also in the medicinal flavor with woody hops and lots of ashes in the dry finish. Light to medium, ashy and lightly acidic body with lowish carbonation. Strange, stuffy, and unpleasant. (Bottled@HBF2006, was 7-3-6-3-13) Darkish amber color with a very small head. Quite fruity, sweetish-malty aroma with red currants and probably other berries, too. Slightly acidic, dull-malty flavor with a fruity finish. Light to medium-bodied, acidic palate. Nice aroma, but the rest is not so convicing...

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2006
I have to say this really does look like a pint of pepsi. Aroma is slightly roasted malt, with little hops showing, a similar aroma to the other st peters beers iv had. Taste was less full than expected, but the roasted malt gives it some plum maybe even latte flavour, which is intresting and quite drinkable.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2006
Red brown colored, little vanishing yellow head. Sweet, nutty and chocolaty aroma, fine. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor starts with nuts and chocolate, ending is roasted, hoppy and bitter. Turns from strong sweetness to strong dryness, with more body this would be excellent brew.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2006
Small head on this red-brown body. The taste is a bit bitter, yet with hints of fruits, but no extraordinary brew. Average bitter.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 13, 2005
Poured from the bottle at Jerusalem Tavern in Farrington, London. A pinkish red with a filmy head. Raspberries in the aroma, and very hoppy to taste. Maybe a bit too bitter.

joergen (21081) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2005
Bottled. Clear red brown coloured with a small and fast disappearing head. Nice aroma with lots of malts, caramel, pine needles and hops. Almost no carbonation. Flavour of fruits, caramel, hops and pine needles. Hoppy finish.

TBone (12816) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2005
Bottled (BB 05/2006)
Dark ruby, nice creamy tanned head, some lace. Aroma is woody-oaky with some sweet notes and a bit of licorice. Medium-bodied. Nutty, woody hops, some sweetness underlying. Good hoppyness in the aftertaste, but maybe lacks a real character to be inspiring.

leaparsons (8180) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2005
Bottle. Its ruby red! with a large beige head. Aromas are sweet, smooth caramel followed by berries and then floral hops. Flavours are malty with not so much caramel, becoming fruity with berries and roast malts. Dry, and hoppy with a decent level of bitterness on the finish. It is thin bodied but that helps with its drinkability. I enjoyed it.
