I'm working my way through the St. Peters bottles available at my local watering hole.

I enjoyed this one. Slightly cloudy and lightly carbonated.

The smell isn't exactly my forte. Strong, malt, floral. Considering this is a characteristic of this type of brew, I was expecting as much and land in the middle as far as scent is concerned.

The taste was biting, bitter, and crisp. Grain, hop, skunk. Not very complex, in my mind its a straight forward concoction.

I think the mouthfeel is my savior for me. Goes down easily, while still having a unique viscosity and texture.

Not amazing, not terrible. I would like to try a fresher bottle or on-tap, then speak my opinion again.

St. Peter’s Golden Ale has a thin, white head, some vertical lacing, and a very hazy, orange-golden appearance with lots of streaming bubbles (etched glass) and numerous, mid-sized brown chunks suspended throughout. The aroma is of an old, moldy cellar, sweet, overripe fruit, such as apple or pear, and some dank barley. Taste is of all that, with some white bread crust and only the slightest background bitterness. There is also an overriding sugar sweetness here. Mouthfeel is medium, with the well water being felt in the mouth as well. St. Peters Golden Ale finishes semi-dry, oddly sweet, and decently drinkable. Even though I’m betting this is a very old bottle, I will still rate it as very fine. It’s interesting, for sure, but I would like to have it fresh, one day.

Poured into a perfect pint.

3.25 A: Clear medium yellow color. One finger o frothy off-white head. Retention is a touch below average and a short ring of lacing is left.

3.5 S: Mineral is the foremost aroma in this. Grainy maltiness follows, then herbal and earthy hops, then a touch of butter, and finally, some breadiness.

3.0 T: Moderate bitterness sticks out immediately. Mineral and grainy malts next. Herbal and earthy hops. Minor amounts of butter and breadiness. There's also a bit of corn in there, which throws off the taste a bit. Not quite clean flavor, but good enough.

3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy with a heavier chewiness.

3.25 D: It's decent, but I vastly prefer the English Ale over this.
