500mL bottle from my St Peter’s LCBO gift pack. This is shamefully mis-classified as a bitter. Hard to define, but Amber Ale would probably suit it best. This beer was nothing short of stunning. Beautiful ruby red hazy colour with a small biege head. Aroma is faint, but enticing. Chrystal and toffee malts with ample British hops. Flavour is awesome. Absolutely delicious malty core complimented by load of hoppy bite. Decently complex. Full bodied and satisfying, this has to be one of the single most under-rated beers I’ve ever had.

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 Iíve had.

Bottle 500ml from Dan Murphyís. Nice and malty bitter. Aromas of caramel, cola, and hints of chocolate. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness. Palate is creamy, with a medium body. Amber, with a frothy head.

Bottle at home 10.02.14. I love this stuff - so a slightly biased review. Pours dark copper red with a slightly yeasty medium head. Slightly coffee and spicey aroma mixed with maltiness. Medium to high carbonation is my only reservation about this beer - I think itís slightly high but this may not be the case on cask. Wonderful rich and malty taste with a deeply set hop which drives into the finish. Body and palate are very well balanced, leaving a slightly nutty taste if you havenít had another mouthful already by then.

500 ml bottle poured into pint glass at room temperature. Rich malt nose with a slight sour note. Deep red/ brown beer with thick creamy off-white head. No carbonation. Medium body, oily texture. Taste is surprisingly hoppy with smoky caramel malt following. The hoppy bitterness lingers for ages. Great bitter, balanced and moreish.

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. Getís a 4/5 as I would actively seek this out.

500 ml bottle from an LCBO gift pack. Im completely blown away by this one. pours sexy red with a lingering tan head and sexy lacings. aromas are malt forward with great hops in the background. the flavour is rich and full. very subtly complex. malt forward but great useage of hops. great full bodied session beer. the best bitter ive ever had by far.

Pours a dark amber, with little head. The aroma is hoppy citrus and pine with malty biscuity notes. Flavour is hoppy, citrusy, with good malty toffee goodness to balance it all out. A fantastic brew.
