St. Peter’s India Pale Ale has a medium, soapy, slightly off-white head and a mostly clear (yet, with a descending cloud, when the bottom of the bottle is swished and poured in), orange-gold appearance. The aroma is faint, but one can pick up some light breadiness and a pit of hop zing. Taste is of sweet, mild, white bread and a nicely hopped bitterness, although not nearly as intense as an American IPA. Mouthfeel is medium and soft and slick, and St. Peter’s IPA finishes semi-dry, refreshing, sweet, and ultra-drinkable. Overall, this is a wonderful beer, and I rate it as being most excellent. Check it out!

500ml green bottle into tulip snifter.
from notes.

Pours a medium brown with faint gold tinges and a thin white head.

Taste and aroma is grassy, faintly floral hops, with some earthy, herbal notes. No bottle dating that I can find, though I suspect this one may be a bit old for the style. Biscuit, malty backing.

Medium body, with average prickly carbonation.

I see the potential in this to be a pleasant, solid English IPA, but unfortunately with no easy way for me to guarantee a fresh bottle it's really not worth the risk, and even fresh I don't know that it would be really anything great.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a tulip glass, unknown bottled date. This pours a slightly hazy brownish color with a smaller med lived head which leaves a lacing. There is a little green bottle skunk, rubbery smell, lots of malt, little hops. The feel is medium. The taste is okay, you have the skunk funk, some weird bitterness, but not quality hop bitterness followed by some malts.

This was another brew my brother in law brought over before my Oktoberfest party. Although, like previously mentioned, it was an unusual offering for a German themed party, I still drank it while I was setting up. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance - Cloudy pour of orange-rust colored brew is topped with a minimal head that leaves little to no lacing and only sticks around for a second.

Smell - Funky, skunky British style hoppiness, with some biscuity malts and toastiness as well. Certainly a unique nose, especially if you are used to AIPA's. In line with the style, just different.

Taste - Some fruits with the breads and biscuity flavors. Hops are pretty subdued, even to someone who is not a hop head. Par for the course on a British style. Buttery with a skunky kick.

Mouthfeel - Light, watery, thin...little aftertaste, a little skunkiness

Overall - There just isn't much to say about this brew. It's not bad, per se, but it certainly isn't good. Not recommended to even try, if you have to pay for it. I think if you try it once, you'll decide that is enough. Just not interesting at all.

500ml bottle served in a Pint glass.

A: Pours a reddish copper color forming a medium creamy and charming yellow head. Good retention and tons of foamy lacings formed end left in the glass

S: Skunky British style hops and caramel malts, mainly. Sweet toffee. Ale yeasts

T: Follows the nose, sweet toffee upfront. Caramel malts, citrus fruits, skunky and flowery hops. Moderate stingy hops bitterness lasts in the end

M: Light body and medium carbonation. Citrus and skunky hops bitterness aftertaste

O: Easy drinking British style session Ale. Could be better but still an honest one
