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.

BeerandBlues2 (12198) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear tawny with an average, frothy beige head, medium-short retention with fair to good lacing. Aroma is average malt (biscuit, cookie, straw), average hops (woody, earthy), and average esters (apple/pear). Flavor is average malt (biscuit, cookie, straw), average hops (woody, earthy), and average esters (apple/pear). Medium body, warmth, and carbonation, light creaminess with a dry finish. This beer seems rather similar to their Amber Ale, though less exciting. An extra bit of hops and less dark caramel malt would really help this ale.

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.
