A - Poured from a really nifty looking oval bottle. Golden amber color and did not produce much head might have been my pour though.

A - Smells a little skunky to be honest and definitely smells bitter. After letting it breath a little the smells went from skunky to malty and earthy.

F - Bitter, excellent pale ale. The mix of flavors is actually really subtle and nice. Slight metallic taste. After the 3rdish drink it starts to taste bready/yeasty with a nice citrus note in the middle finishes up with a grassy taste which just makes me think organic.

M - Not as thick as I thought it would be... Light carbonation levels... Not much to say it works for the style.

O - I really enjoyed this beer, it's savory and has a really good balance of taste... I think this is the first Organic beer I've had and I sort of thought it would be closer to homebrew but its crisp and clean and just got better as it breathed.

Look is typically all of this style, golden and clear. Smells of, I swear it does, dried apricot and peach. Tastes of honey and hops, with a tingle of carbonation. It is a mouthful. Overall? I am going back for more.
Bonus: the bottle's shape is unique.

Brilliantly clear, golden pour with modest carbonation and a beautiful cream-off-white 1-inch head. Modest head retention. Fresh, noticeable, malty nose with some grassy after-notes. Medium body. Excellent lacing. Restrained hop-bitterness; suggestions of fresh cracked pepper on the palate. Crisp and dry finish. Nice bite . Almost pilsnerish. Certainly moreish. I would definitely purchase this ale again. Delicious.

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.

Poured from a pint sized bottle into a lint glass, coded freshness date. This pours a nice clear amber color with a nice foamy white head. The smell is fresh and crisp a little grassy earthy and nice toffee and caramel malts. The feel is medium. The taste is similar to the smell, quite nice, nice amount of bitterness and caramel, I'm impressed.
