Additional notes 06/28/23

This is a bit confusing in terms of what beer this is. Time to do some research. THis version is called “Organic English Ale” (pictured), BUT comes in at 4.8%. As you can see below, the beer called simply “English Ale” is listed at 4.5%. The to add to the problematic nature of things, there’s this also at 4.5%. Some of the confusion may be due to mistakes tin the American-centric beer advocate database back in the day, but relabeling, new marketing and changes of ABV complicate things too.

As far as this bottle goes that was purchased at Jungle Jim’s in Cincinnati on 06/24/23 and has an illegible BB date on the neck that *might* say 22063 which really makes no sense.

In terms of the beer, everything written below still applies very closely, so I suspect that this beer is the same as that 05 reviewed beer,


Original notes 08/22/05

Love the bottle – great presentation. Absolute clarity in the pale orange body with a lovely one inch, full, bone colored head. Beautiful looker with some lovely lacing.

Sweet, grassy aroma that is true to the beers advertised organic pedigree.

Subtle and well crafted beer, a rare combination.

Some mild hop bitterness all the way through the drink. This has great potential as a session beer.

Although this certainly looks like an English Pale Ale, it drinks more like a traditional light bitter and has some striking characteristics that are reminiscent of a fine Cask Ale.

Great job, great beer, St. Peter’s continues to produce some real gems.
