St Peter's Organic Ale 4.5%
Bought this in Adsa tonight and thought that I would give it a try. Well this "This lovely beer won the Soil Association’s top prize in 2002" well surely that should swing it for anybody! actually have tried a few things from the St Peter's brewery and thought they were pretty good so here goes.
Very much an English style ale - very easy to drink and not overly hoppy at all. Touch of citrusy notes and soft dryness in the finish. Overall not a bad beer although bizarrely for an organic beer it has a slight solventy note in the finish!
As i say note a bad beer but not one I will be rushing out to buy again - knew I should have picked up the Hobgoblin from http://www.wychwood.co.uk/ instead. Anyway as for a score i would say an average 7 /10.
