Review – St Peter’s Without is a great alcohol-free dark ale crammed full of flavour and aroma. If you’re after a rich and rather indulgent caramel-esque beer then this is certainly one you have to try. You literally wouldn’t believe the creators of this ale also created Kaliber! Big thumbs up from MyDryBar.
St Peter’s Without alcohol-free dark ale comes from the craft brewer ‘St Peter’s Brewery’ based in Suffolk and founded back in 1996.
This brewery was created by John Murphy. You may have come across this guy before as he also created the much loved and loathed alcohol-free beer ‘Kaliber’.
St Peter’s Without comes in a hefty-looking botanical medicine bottle (modeled after the 1770 original) but what did it taste like and was it any good? Well, you’ll just need to read my review below to find out.
Is St Peter’s Without any good?
Wow, this is a really malty-tasting drink, which for me is a good thing as it’s one of my favourite tastes. To be honest I was not expecting this intense a flavour but it had a really bready/ cereal taste to it. It would have been great had there been a bitterness to it to help take the edge of the malty sweetness but it still didn’t extra from my enjoyment. Similar to other rich, sweet beers I was able to enjoy one but couldn’t fit in another.
Aroma & Appearance
St Peter’s Without had an aroma similar to its taste – super malty and hoppy; imagine taking a whiff of crushed-up Maltesers and you get the idea. The beer itself was very dark with decent carbonation that pretty much kept a frothy, malty head whilst drinking.
The bottle was very cool and hefty in the hand, so top marks for packaging design. Although St Peter’s Without is suitable for vegans it does contain cereals so not appropriate for those who are gluten-free. It is a fairly easily found alcohol-free beer available at certain leading supermarkets and online stores.
