St. Peter’s English Ale

St. Peter’s English Ale comes in a sweet old-style medicine bottle. This organic ale from England opens with a nicely rounded bitterness and has an interesing fruity finish. It drinks clean, not syrupy at all, and has a nice light carbonation with the medium body. This beer is less sweet than typical English ales, and a bit more bittered than I typically find in the genre. No complaints here.

The aroma is lightly malty and fruity, with a nice hoppy aroma from the Hallertau hops. The flavor runs a bit towards a Belgian as well, which is pretty fun.

Overall, this is an enjoyable English ale. And it’s really a nice English ale to checkout if you’re a fan of the West Coast IPAs. The bottle’s pretty cool too.

    HEY! Totally happened upon your blog by serendipity.

    I grew up in Portland ~and~ I enjoy a tasty bottle of hoppy goodness, (a.k.a. IPA) as well.

    As a matter of fact, just this afternoon, bought St. Peter’s India Pale Ale, having purchased the one in your photo last week. I can only find it at Whole Foods, which I also totally love.

    Love your photos of the bottle next to the glass. Excellent.

    Looking forward to checking out your blog…

    Cheers,

    thanks! I’m planning to feature at least a beer a week. This photo wasn’t as good as I’d like, but I think I captured the beer pretty well. Still working on that a bit.
