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...

St. Peter’s Winter Ale

=== Updated Review 03/09 === Bottle still in the circular rather than the oval style from Bullock's, Marietta, GA, USA. $1.19 for 500 mL on sale. Jubbly. Pour remains resplendent with the head, lace and color exceptional. Still full of malty goodness with mild spice and wave after wave of first class drinkability. As smooth as you like, what a GREAT beer. === Original Review 01/08 === Delighted to see this turn up in GA at Green's on Buford, Atlanta, GA, USA - means it went ON to, and then OFF...

St. Peter’s Ruby Red Ale

From notes taken in July of 2007 in England. Cheers Chris! Pour reveals a really quite dark body with a small, but dense ad creamy head. Spotty head (again creamy), some lace. Interesting beer that combines a number of attributes; creaminess of a Porter, a little spice that is reminiscent of a Winter Warmer (that apparently comes from the Goldings), and the classic biscuit malt subtlety that you would expect from a typical, simple but well made English bitter. Extraordinarily drinkable, a...

St. Peter’s Organic Ale

  From notes taken in England in July 2007. Cheers Chris! Very delicate brew that is fairly consistent with the English Pale Ale style that it claims to be in. Plenty of citrus notes fill both the nose and the palate, along with some prickly carbonation - rather too much for my liking. This is an exceptionally "light" beer, and IMO it suffers a little because of it. A tad watery, I think the lack of body is the main fault. Lots of sweetness (that I like) and a very clean feeling brew....

St. Peter’s Fruit Beer (Grapefruit)

At The Jerusalem Tavern with one of my closest friends - could it be any better? St. Peter's does it for me all the time, and this is no exception. Simple looking brew with an darkish, amber body the looks a little thin. Decent head, some lace and retention. Aroma is ALL grapefruit and to me it is wonderful. A LOT of depth in the nose. Happily the aspect of the grapefruit that comes through most in the taste is the bitterness as opposed to much fruit. The combination works well againast a...

St. Peter’s India Pale Ale

As far as I can tell this is relatively new to the US. The St. Peter's "flask" bottle remains a classic. Green's, Ponce de Leon, Atlanta, GA, USA. I suspect that this beer is going to be horribly misuderstood in the USA. People without the knowledge or experience of an ENGLISH IPA will think that this is just too light and not hoppy enough. The mistake that they will be making is that the English (original) version of the IPA is always going to be more balanced and understated, without feeling...

St. Peter’s English Ale

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...

St. Peter’s Golden Ale

$2.99 Arbor Place Beverage Depot, Douglasville, GA. St. Peter's does it again with this beautifully flavorful yet light beer. This is beer gives a combo which I find so difficult to find. A real tasty, hoppy, perfectly balanced brew that feels truly refreshing and drinkable. Pours the golden color that the name promises, with a beautiful head with stacks of lacing throughout the drink. Malts start the taste experience but this quickly gives way to perfectly balanced bitterness. That bitterness...

St. Peter’s Cream Stout

It's all chocolate, it's all burned coffee, it's all rich, deep aromas and tastes, and it's all spectacular! St. Peter's does it again with this stunning stout. An experience more than a drink, with the aromas and tastes wooing the senses - I love it. Pours jet black with a beautiful tan head that invites you in. The initial tastes are sweet and chocolatety and it just gets deeper and richer from there. This is a brew to savor and to indulge in. Enjoy.

St. Peter’s Best Bitter

Lovely. Love the St. Peter's bottles and the look of this fine brew. An amber pour with a really frothy head leaving some excellent lacing. A really refreshing, light "ale" taste, but still flavorful. Slightly fragrant aroma which is something I don't normally enjoy, but the light refreshing nature of this brew was really different. Almost like a "light" beer for serious drinkers. I was pleasantly surprised. Very drinkable since it goes down so well.

St. Peter’s Old-Style Porter

Notes added 07/16/21. (Pictured) Label has changed over the years, bottle has not. $4.99 bottle Jungle Jim’s, Cincinnati, OH. classic pour, broken head and lace. Ruby black pour when the light hits at the correct angle. Easy drinking with depth. Damn. 1 Pint .9fl oz Bottle. $2.99, Arbor Place Beverage, Douglasville, GA, USA. Subsequently, 1 Pint .9fl oz Bottle. $3.29, Green's Beverage, Ponce de Leon, Atlanta, GA. I love this bottle, it looks like there is medicine inside, and frankly I felt...
