Dig the cool bottle, don't dig the green glass. Always a worry about skunkiness when imports us the green glass.

Pours a very light orange color with a one finger white head.

Smells like saltines with an astringent burst of hops. There is a bit of the skunk on there, but it dissipates after a few minutes.

Biscuity on the palate, hops are crisp and really balance well with the bread flavors on the front. A by the book English Pale Ale.

This review was originally submitted in summer 2012 under the 'St. Peter's English Ale' entry, a mistake on my part that has been deleted and moved here.

500 mL bottle from the LCBO; production code A1612 (guessing that means January 16th of this year, but I'm really not sure). Nice bottle, but does it really need to be green?

Pours a translucent pale amber-blonde colour, topped with roughly one finger of frothy, creamy off-white head. Retention isn't great, but there is some very nice lacing left behind. The aroma is skunky at first, but this problem is mostly solved with a few minutes of airing out. Doing so helps reveal the true aroma of biscuity malts, honey, and some fruity esters reminiscent of apples and pears, all of which is supported with a background of leafy English hop aromas.

This is a pretty tasty EPA, and its flavour covers most of the major traits I like in the style. The flavour is dominated by malts at first, reminding me of lightly-toasted buttered biscuits with a hint of honey and toffee. This is balanced nicely with some potent floral, earthy English hop bitterness, adding a slightly tea-leafy feel to the brew that lingers into the dry finish. Slick, buttery mouthfeel, with a body on the light side of medium. Relatively light carbonation that gently prickles the tongue as you sip, and very drinkable.

St. Peter's Organic English Ale could easily be improved by just switching to a brown bottle, but it's still a solid quaff even with the skunkiness. Fairly well-balanced, very smooth mouthfeel with lots of English-style hoppiness, which is 90% of what I want from an EPA.

I picked up another bottle on Dec. 19 2013, this time comparing it side-by-side with Spitfire, Fuller's London Pride and Pedigree. The toasted malts allow this one to stand out from the pack - this is a superbly well-balanced, sessionable English ale with no serious weaknesses. It's a little too pricy to be something I'd drink regularly, but that has nothing to do with the beer itself. All English ale fans should give this one a shot.

Final Grade: 3.93, an impressive B+.

A: Pours a very lightly hazy medium golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint hints of apricot highlights. The beer has a two finger tall sudsy off-white head that reduces to a large patch of thick film surrounded by a thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of biscuit malts with some light aromas of fruity yeast (hints of white grape). There is a light aroma of floral and grassy hops as well.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of biscuit and bready malts with some light flavors of fruity yeast (white grape) - which contributes a very light amount of sweetness which builds as the beer warms. Light amounts of bitterness in the finish but it does not linger for long.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Clean and crisp with just a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: With the nice flavors/aromas and low ABV, this is a very nice sessionable brew and one I could easily see myself enjoying - reminds me of sitting in a pub in London.

3.55/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

From the antique looking green 25 oz. bottle labeled Organic English Ale with the number 10035 on the back label. Sampled on June 30, 2013.

The pour is golden amber with a foamy off-white head and a slight cloudy appearance. I think it looks quite good.

The aroma is very malt forward with butter and cream, yeast, and a slight herbal quality. Hops are soft.

The body is light to medium but quite creamy.

The taste has a malty beginning but a slightly lingering hop finish that becomes rather dry. It reminds more of German malts than English but it is refreshing enough.
