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.

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 (4988) - 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.

Brown with quick-fading tan head. Aroma is worty and unfermented. Taste is the same, with weak hop taste. Not sure what this is, but it isn’t an APA.

DocLock (7920) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2011
22 oz. Aluminum bottle from State Line. Pours deep coppery ruby with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, earthy brown sugary. Tastes like liquid Wheaties, with some earthy and brown sugary notes. Not terribly complex or exciting, but not bad.

Chronoflash (76) - New York, USA - MAY 3, 2011
Clear amber rust body below a thick and persistent off-white head. Aroma is malty, bready, with a sweet caramel and brown sugar tinge and slight spiciness. Medium bodied, with a mildly hoppy sting on the middle and finish. Malty sweet, underattenuated, light buttery slickness, doughy with a caramel/hop finish. To me, the butterscotch/diacetyl is a bit too prominent for this to be anything above decent. Still, the beer below the diacetyl is well rounded...

obguthr (3933) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Medium roasted malt, hay, and honey aroma, not strong. Clear ruby copper, thin yellow head, minimal lacing. Malt, with a little cherries at midpalate and dried leaves in the end. Flavor is rather subdued, but decent. Not a lot of hop character, which leads me to think this is more of an amber than an APA.
