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.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 25, 2008
Tasted 25/02/2008. 500ml bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits. Copper, rather than ruby red. Diminishing off-white head. Clear. Subdued caramel and milk chocolate, all slightly stale, on the nose. More of that in the mouth with a pleasant drying roastiness. Carbonation bite. Medium bitterness. A little flourish of herbal/piney hop flavour on the palate, which surprised me nicely. Caramel lingers too. Becoming a little moreish as I get into it, for sure. Better with a little less carbonation and if it were fresher. Goodish.

ogivlado (6815) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 15, 2007
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.

joe19612 (2366) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2007
Bottle. Poured a reddish appearance and with no headt. Plenty of fruits and a lingering pleasant aftertaste. Pleasant beer but nothing special.

sm89walt (1847) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 8, 2007
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.

Svesse (7502) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2007
(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.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2007
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.
