    Darker ruby bit hazy draft with solid white foam head, lasting and lacing to glass. Aroma is bit sweet, not too much. Taste is surprisingly bitter with little sweet (caramel). Long lasting bitter aftertaste. A nice red.

    Pours a murky brown with a almost non existant head and very little carbonation. Aroma is hoppy and a bit fruity. Flavour is hoppy, with a bit of sweetness before the bitter finish, creamy mouthfeel with very low carbonation. High drinkability.

    This one came in a Christmas pack with their IPA and a nice tall glass (pint) at the LCBO. Pours a caramel-brown colour with a beige fluffy-cream head that lives up, creates nice thick lace all around and still remains a coat to top the brew as you drink it. Carbonation is on the low-side. Aromas of caramel malt and a touch of roasted malt and nuts. These also show up in the taste. A little fruit too and some mild bitterness in the finish. Quite easy to drink actually and wish we could get this one all the time.

    Bottle: Poured a clear light ruby color ale with a medium foamy head with average retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of dry English hops with some very light caramel malt. Taste is also dominated by some subtle dry English-style hops with a subtle malt presence. I was expecting a bit more and I thought the body was too thin.

    Not a bad ale, but not a great ale. As with all St. Peter's products I've tried previously, the bottle is neat. The beer is more of a rusty red colour than a ruby red. The aroma is malty with some nutty hints. The flavour is more of the same, and nicely bitter. But nothing here to excite me.

    500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 4.3%. Deep copper to chestnut colour, moderate off-white head. Pleasant aroma of malts with moderate notes of caramel, earthy and fruity hops (Styrian Goldings) also come up front. The flavour is malty and woody but not sweet, and there are plenty of hops throughout, with a fairly bitter aftertaste. Good beer!

    "1/2 liter oval bottle. Fairly fresh. Pours a hazed copper-red ale in the glass with a decent 2 finger tight cap that laces up the glass well. Soft carbonation. Aroma is very pleasant..fruity ( cherry or grape skins) with some hay and slight whisp of sweet grains. Moderate body, silken mouth feel, pronounced malt spine with a fruity-resinous character. Up front the malt is there in spades...it's a rich toasty amber malt with a slight caramel character, then the the tart fruitiness (berry and citrus) rush the palate joined shortly by a piercing resinous hopping that builds to the lightly bitter finish. What a great ale..well made, quenching, flavorful, approachable and satisfying world class red bitter. I wish I could get this all the time.

    Bottled. Ruby red colour with minor beige head. Sweet sugar and malts in aroma. Flavour the same with a big grassyish and fruity finish. A bit acidic too. Aroma was nice, but the rest was quite a boredom.
