barncatmatt (2281) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2008
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.

500ml bottle from the LCBO as part of a gift pack with a St Peters pint glass The aroma is very rich bitter sweet smell Pours a nice dark cloudy reddish colour with very little head Tastes quite good a little sweet and a little bitter and a touch on the watery side But another fine beer from St Peters

This was good. Lots of hops there and extremely dry and bitter, though was a tad flat. The colour certainly is ruby.

robinvboyer (4360) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2008
sweet malty aroma, a touch of hops. Flavour i’m getting an odd wet dog smell, meh, i’mnot liking this. there is also an odd sourness, really i think that has been sitting way too long.

Sigmund (7040) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2008
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 4.3%. Deep copper to chestnut colour, moderate off-white head. Pleasant aroma of malts with moderate notes of caramel, earthy and fruity hops (Styrian Goldings) also come up front. The flavour is malty and woody but not sweet, and there are plenty of hops throughout, with a fairly bitter aftertaste. Good beer!

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2008
Bottle, LCBO gift pack. Red pour, good sized white head. Sweet aroma, earthy hops, more forward than I was expecting. Taste follows - a sold amber ale with a lot more hops than are usually found in pasteurized British bottled bitters. Lots of flavour for 4.3%. Another winner from St Peter’s.

bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2008
Very short lived head on this red bodied beer. Watered down fruits in the taste, also in the aroma, with a light spice note and low carbonation.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2008
500 ml bottle - pours chestnut-red, with a good frothy head that lasts and leaves thick, sticky lace. Aroma some fresh, earthy hops, perhaps a bit of wild mushroom, demerara sugar, yeast and sweet caramalts. Flavour very well balanced - woody, sweet, slightly musty, with bread crusts. Body a tad thin, but that’s fine for the ABV. Feels like drinking an autumnal walk in the woods. Beautiful in it’s simplicity.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2008
500 mL bottle. More copper-red than ruby red. Almost no head whatsoever. Aroma is earthy hops, mostly, and a bit of caramel. Lots of hops and a nice bitterness in the flavour, as well. Very fresh. Not really what I expected. A little on the thin side. I’d like to try it on tap.

downender (8270) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2008
Bottle from ASDA. Opaque, deep amber in colour with a decent off-white head. Aroma of red fruit, caramel and a hint of charred malt. Flavour started sweet, with plenty of fruit, marzipan and a short, dry finish. A good bottled beer.
