Suffolk-grown First Gold hops provide the inspiration for this premium beer which is brewed with Suffolk malt to produce a full bodied bitter ale with a lasting hop aroma.

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!

50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with an off-white head. Light fruity hops aroma. Flavour is smooth fruity hops with a mild caramel malt base. Nice bitterness lurking through.

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.

bluevegie (3063) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2007
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.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2007
Dark gold with a large white head. Citrus hop aroma. Taste has a little biscuity malt, but the sharp hoppiness is the dominant feature.

Cask at Jerusalem Tavern. Golden; nice hoppiness not just in aroma and bitterness but even more in the taste, with the dry edge of a Burton pale ale. Also the bottles version was good, with an even sharper hop bitterness.
