Bottiglia da 50cl degustata sabato sera; discreta ale inglese, aroma un po’ saponoso, corpo leggero, sapore dominato dal floreale dei luppoli. Per essere un esempio ’’rinforzato’’ manca decisamente di carattere; tuttavia rimane una buona birra.

Cask at the Jerusalem Tavern. Attractive bright amber colour. Slightly grassy aroma. Clean but ultimately a little dull.

I desperately want to like this brewery’s beers. The staff at the brewery are very friendly, I love the set up and location at an old abbey, and above all I love the bottles and branding. Unfortunately the beers I have tried so far have not lived up to my hopes.
This one is fizzy, and looks like lager. It pours golden with a moderate but lasting head. The initial taste is very reminiscent of their Golden Ale, but develops a much more pronounced hoppy/ floral flavour, with a deep and lasting bitterness. I can see that some would like this, but the bitterness was a bit strong for me.
I will keep trying to find a St Peter’s beer I like though!

chiara schiuma abbondante e persistente grossolana sentori erbacei lieve agrumati di lupplo un po malto in bocca giusto un accenno di malto e l’amaro taglia decisamente all’inizio qulache punta di medicinale poi l’amaro torna ben marcato

A Mes rate: Bottle at the Jerusalem Tavern.
Lovely clean golden brown with a very well behaved creamy head. Creamy vanilla aroma with light grapefruit and tobacco. Lovely hops and a hint of malt. Really nice hoppage in the flavour with plenty more tobacco and a very good nutty malt base. Lovely grapefruit hop finish. Balance is pretty damn good. Nice bite at the sides of the palate from the grapefruit. Interesting and plenty of character. Just the right amount of body. Jolly good stuff.

Orangey gold body with a very short head. Nice drinkable grapefruit bitterness in the taste but a bit thin, nose is of sweet citrus. Just enough malts to help balance it out.
