COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In a surprising turn of events, rival superpowers have joined forces to bring a beer of might to the world. According to top-secret documents, recently unclassified, brewmasters for 21st Amendment in California and Ninkasi in Oregon began their brewing careers together many years ago. ALLIES WIN THE WAR! is 21st Amendment Brewery’s first ever collaboration beer, a traditional English-style Strong ale aged on native California dates and dry hopped with all-Northwest aroma hops. Available now in limited edition four-pack cans and draft.

Old ale with dates.

12 oz can at Churchkey. Pours a deep walnut color with a moderatelty sized off white, fairly bubbly head. Nose holds toasted malt, rich malt character including caramel, candied sugars, biscuit, dough, and a bit of syrupy citrus hoppiness. Flavor brings more malt. Drinkable and I could definitely get drunk off of what is a fairly tasty beer, but no great shakes.

Can. Dark reddish brown pour, small disc of carbonation and an aroma of bready hops and a little herbal. Flavor is light on the body, more herbs, resiny hops and finished with a nice flavor of dates and a little boozy and peppery. Very nice.

Super good beer. Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice malt aroma and flavor. Light date flavor and lingering hops in the finish. This was a great beer not sure about the date flavor. I would drink again due to it is very tasty amber ale.

PapaSkeetSkeet (809) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Definitely in the wrong category. This is a good american amber ale with dates, and perhaps some sugar added to dry it out. Belgian without the yeast and with NW hops. Ruby/brown with light-tan head. Aroma is floral hops and grain. Flavor is light caramel, floral notes, light tree, and some dried out chewy dates come through and grow on you as it warms. A good beer for American breweries! Frothy palate with slight granulation.

mikesaum (596) - Newark, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Pours amber with a tannish head, aroma is hoppy with caramel and date hints, some biscuit. Cannot taste the dates, flavor is hoppy with biscuit and brown sugar hints. Pretty good beer but not what I was expecting at all, I was hoping the dates would be more present.

Clear reddish brown pour with a small grey head. Grapefruit and resinous sweet caramel notes in the nose give way to bready dough, citrus, biscuity sweetness, dark fruit, and hints of orange juice. Medium to full body- resinous sticky finish.

12oz can. Amazing looking can, let’s see how the beer is. Pours out an amber hue, I was told this is akin to a hoppy amber. Aromas are malty, somewhat sweet, not getting much of a hop presence in the nose. Palate however is smooth, abv is well hidden, and there is a definite hop background. Really drinkable and I’m surprised that this is in the HSV category.

Can pours clear dark reddish brown with an average light tan head with some retention. Aromas are hop forward and some sweet maltiness. Taste is rubbing alcohol, grain, some light malt sweetness and some bitterness on the finish. Body is medium, lacing is decent, alcohol is very present. Overall, and OK brew, but have had better from this brewery.
