Looks the part, I expected this to be a bitter and my first thought was, "Hmm, looks like a pale ale." The color is a pale amber. Caught in the middle between opaque and translucent. A very thin, watery pour. Head is almost non-existent.

Lots of smells. Flowery...pilsner malts...barley...some sort of dark ripe fruit.

The malted barley makes the biggest impression. It's up front and in your face. Eventually some floral tastes come through before a cracker-like, hop-forward finish.

I don't care much for the style. It's got a dirty, Earthy feel. Very thin like the appearance, but medium-bodied due to the Earthiness. Very bitter, dryish swallow.

I've never been to England, but this is what I'd expect to drink. It's not bad, just not my cup of tee, though I'm sure it would go very well with a variety of foods.

Pours a thin head on a hazy straw body.
The aroma is honey suckle and light grains.
The taste is a mild play between honey sweet and pine bitterness. Nice.
The texture is crisp.
Really enjoyable.

Pours a pale golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of cereal, grains, light citrus and some yeast. Taste is biscuit malt, some citrus notes, yeast and bitter hops. Palate is a light body, crisp with mild carbonation. Finish is biscuit malt, yeast, some light citrus notes ending with some bitter hops for balance. Overall a pretty good drinkable ale.

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.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

A good solid yellow gold and absolutely crystal clear body is presented off the pour. Up top sits a shocking white head of about two fingers. Tiny slow crawling bubbles rise. I am kind of surprised by how incredibly clear this is. Some good stickiness on the glass.

Smells like an adjunct lager at first then gives way to minor toasty like malts, but also some old doughy like bread. Not particularly bitter or hoppy either. Kind of small nose also.

Taste is, kind of hop lemon bitter sensation with good baking cracker like bread at the end. Texture hints at crispness with a solid medium body. Finish also has grapefruit oil like qualities and flavor.

Overall kind of reminds me of an English bitter in a way but definitely more crisp and full. One to enjoy no problem.

St. Peter’s Organic English Ale has an extraordinarily thick, spongy, off-white head, with little brown specks sprinkled about and thick, heavy lacing left behind on the glass. The appearance is murky golden, with suspended brown flecks and lots of bubble streams. Aroma is sharp, with a moldy, cellared smell and some bready sweetness. Taste is of sweet, bready malt, sharp, grassy hops bitterness, nut shell, sugar, and cellar. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and St. Peter’s Organic English Ale finishes dry, decently refreshing, and nicely drinkable, yet not particularly quaff-able. Overall, this is an interesting and flavorful ale, and I suggest giving it a go.
