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.

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.

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.

16.9 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a small head that reduced to a thin layer and left some lacing on the glass. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: caramel malts, fruity, and bready.

Taste: grassy hops, bready and pale malts, and some lingering bitterness in the end.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, chewy, medium carbonation, and light to medium bodied.

Overall: Pretty nice EPA here folks. Not crazy about beer that comes in strange green shaped bottles, but this one was alright.
