COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark pale ale.
An American ale that reserves its right to be different. A bit lighter in body, Old Court provides a citrusy hop aroma and caramel finish. 16 Mile names this ale for Sussex County’s original courthouse, which has been serving judicial needs since 1791. Today it stands on South Bedford Street just south of The Circle in historic Georgetown, Delaware.

This beer was terrible. It was flat with no carbonation or aroma. Taste was of stale grains and a watery texture. Maybe i got a spoiled can and i will re-rate if my next experience is any different.

Bottle shared with Linh. Pours a plain amber body with white lacing. Aroma is light sweet corn, grain, and sweet, fruity malts. Mouthfeel is thin and carbonated with notes of fruity malts, a light graininess and nothing else. Not overly offensive, but nothing I would ever prefer to drink personally.

I tried my best to get any aroma out of this beer to no avail. The most I could get was a bit of malt. The flavor is not bad, slightly bitter with a dry feel. A little thin going down. Just a bland beer.

Tap @ brewery. Pours brown with thick, frothy off-white head; good retention and lacing. Aroma is caramel and sweet malts, fruit, toffee, and some earthy notes. Flavor is malt forward, average hops, and light esters; sweet finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

beachbum25 (1085) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - NOV 6, 2011
On tap @ the Brewery-Brown pour w/a moderate white head. Some hop aroma. Had a bit of a hop bite, some malt, some caramel....not a whole lot going on here. Pretty boring actually, and as others have said, this is definatly not an APA, more like a brown ale or Amber.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4785) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Not an APA but rather pleasant. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz can this beer poured a medium brown color with orange highlights and a medium sized foamy tan head that faded and left some lacing. The aroma was sweet caramel, molasses, somewhat vegetal malts and moderate notes of cherry, fruity hops and cola. The flavor was bitter and tart with cherry, molasses, caramel, pineapple, grapefruit, nut bread and cola elements blending nicely. Medium finish. Medium body. Interesting.
