St. Peter’s Sorgham Beer

$3.99 for the 500 mL, old-style, St. Peter’s bottle form Arbor Place, Douglasville, GA, USA.
Right off the top, I think this should be categorized as an English Pale (at least in the way it drinks).
WOW! A revelation. Obviously I went into this with some severe trepidation but came out amazed!
The pour is a crystal clear, orangey/macro color with some limited head but surprising sticky lace.
Nose is pretty neutral, but it gives away some simple malt-like notes.
The tastes are AMAZING when you consider the nature of the beer. There is a lot of tangerine, orange and sweetened grapefruit, a VERY clean finish and a lingering hop bitterness that HONESTLY reminds me of some of the better, casked, highly-hopped English Pale Ales.
Mouthfeel is where things go south, but if you can imagine a super, crisp, English Pale with a decent amount of thirst-quenching qualities, then you can get a handle on this beer.
I am actually going to purchase this again as a “normal” beer.
Truly amazing when you consider the lack of malts.
