This beer uses no hops at all in its production, as hops were not introduced into Britain until the 15th century, but it is rich in botanicals, fruits and roasted barley. In addition, stinging nettles have been used in the production of the beer, just as they would have been at the first Millennium.

KnutAlbert (6746) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2007
Bottled. Dark with a tuby tint. Sooty aroma with some herbal flavour, too. Liquorice, salt. Different, but I am not convinced about this one.

Hildigltur (5105) - Kbenhavn, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2005
Bottled. Reddish brown coloured. Very malty aroma. Sweet and boring flavour. No sign of the juniper. Dissapointing.

NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2005
Nice sweet flavor. Smoked taste. Dry aftertaste. Tastes a little bit like wine. Good beer.

skortila (5526) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2004
Aroma is a bit winey, fruity and smoked. Clear, reddish colour with a decent lacing. Taste is slightly thin. Bit weird. Herbs, fruit, sweetness, smoked all together well balanced. I had to get used to its taste, but it was good. Pleasant brew.

jerohen (2224) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2004
Bottled, sampled in Jerusalem Tavern. Clear dark copper coloured, dying head. Very malty roated aroma with some port notes. Superb smooth flavour. Sweet finish. My personal favourite of the St. Peters brewery.

CEZ (413) - Milano, ITALY - FEB 20, 2004
My bottle had its Best Before Date set at "Feb 2004", but it seemed to have survived in fairly good condition. Herbs (juniper and nettles, the label says) are evident in both aroma and taste: the beer smells almost like vermouth or bitters. The taste is good, strongly malty, with a licorice-like note, and a slightly dry finish, even if the body is rather thin and watery. I suppose this would have been much better if fresh, but you have to understand me, I just can't resist an unusual beer on sale (40% off)...

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - FEB 15, 2004
Bottled. Deep amber approaching brown. The head didnt stay around very long. Rich malty flavour. The absence of hops defines this Saxon styled beer. Rich mature malt flavour. Medium length on the palate. I can definitely recommend this beer for its historical importance and quality.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2004
This was a disappointment (like all other St. Peters beers) No taste of juniper berries at all. Quite mild, low carbonation. However it is still not a bad beer. The label is just telling you something else.

Ungstrup (35911) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2004
The aroma is spicy - undescribable special. The color is red and it has a small disappearing head. The flavor is very spicy, noticable juniper, and slightly sweet. This beer is more special, than it is good, but I'm glad I've tried it.
