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.

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 (5487) - 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.

Poured a dark color. Malty aroma with corn and some bourbon(?). Taste has lots of sweet malts with some bourbon as well, not much complexity, but not bad.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - APR 18, 2011
651mL tank shell can thanks to ryan. The pour is a clear, red, fire iridium with a tan, thick, sheen head. Big lace. Aroma is sweet syrup, metals, toast. Taste is malty, toasty, caramel, lightly metallic, lemon, fairly bitter, rye bread. Pretty mediocre. Palate is thinner, tart. Again, not bad for $3 a bomber.

22oz can shared by ryan: Pours a clear deep copper with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted caramel malty nose with a touch of earthy hops. Starts with decent fullness and some chewy caramel maltiness with a touch of butterscotch and light fruitiness before a doughy bittersweet finish. Needs a fresher, cleaner hop profile.

Malty nose with a touch of caramel and light dark fruit. The taste is light to moderately sweet, lightly bitter, some toffee, light raisin, very light citrus.

Red-orange pour with a light tan head. Light metallic aroma with notes of malt and a touch of hops. Sweet caramel flavor with notes of cherry and bubblegum. A bit metallic. Bitter hop finish.

This beer is very clear amber with a light to medium tan head. Bubbles from carbonation move quite fast. There is a sweet toffee smell and a mild tinge from the hops. The taste is lightly sweet with a little bite that ends quickly and lively carbonation. The mouthfeel is thin and a little dry. I enjoyed this beer.

Pours copper with a tan head. Smells of sweet malt, tea, earthy. Tastes earthy with some light caramelly hints on the finish.

A dark ale. It’s dark brown in color with a white head when poured into a glass. This ale isn’t bad, much better than Budwieser’s american ale. You can still taste some of the hops in this beer, but is still smooth in flavor.
