Bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a short, quickly diminishing white head. Hoppy aroma has notes of caramel, pine, citrus and herbs. Flavour is more malty, with hints of nuts and wood, but is otherwise very similar to the aroma. Medium bodied with very little carbonation and a nice, long bitter finish. Quite enjoyable, more so than the other St Peter’s beers I have tried, and also highly sessionable.

50cl oval, typical St..Peter’s bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden with a small off-white head. Decent lacing. As all the other St.Peter’s brews, the "Suffolk Gold" has very low carbonation, almost none. Mouth feel is smooth, if a tad watery, the ale itself being of medium body. Aroma is dominated by citrusy hops, almost like an IPA. Peach is the fruit of choice here. Malty subtext. When St.Peter’s say "bitter", they sure mean it. Like the "Best Bitter", the "Organic Best Bitter" and the "Golden Ale", the Suffolk Gold impresses with forward bitterness amidst strong citric notes. Again, one is reminded almost of an IPA, though this one is considerably tarter. Refreshingly hoppy finish and after taste. This is one of the better St.Peter’s brews, mainly because it offers a nice balance between bitter and citric notes (unlike their "Best Bitter", which is almost brutally bitter), increasing the beer’s suitability as a session ale. Refreshing, tasty, interesting blond ale.

[email protected]Øl&Mat 09, Oslo. Low greyish head,. Dark copper colored body. Weak aroma of cider-ish apples and dry, pale malts. Light, dryish malt body. Faint caramel. Distinct earthy hop bitterness. Medium body. Fine bitterness lingers in the ending. A solid, straightforward one.

MoritzF (10095) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2009
(bottle) Hazy, deep golden to light-amber colour with a mid-sized, slightly off-white foamy head. Light-sweet cara-malty aroma with lime and woody hops. Bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a smooth carbonation. Fairly good hops accented taste on a solid malty base, dry, fruity and hop bitter finish. Another decent St. Peters brew (06.VII.09).

[500cl bottle from Waitrose.] Amber with a thin ring of white head - grassy aroma - tart fruit flavours with some caramel and a sharp bitterness.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - NOV 3, 2008
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.

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2008
Cask at the Jerusalem Tavern. Attractive bright amber colour. Slightly grassy aroma. Clean but ultimately a little dull.
