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.

The (not so) shit beer tasting at Leightons stratospheric flat. Thanks Leighton. Hazy amber beer, tidy pale cream colored head. Palate is airy and dry. Light airy malt cream. Dried fruits, lightly tangy. Very light spice in the semi dry finish. Not bad.

Medium sweet flavor with dry fruitcake, grainy bread, a bit of dried fruits, dates. Medium bodied with fineto average carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Lightly warming to finish with slight piney bitterness, more dried fruits, bready fruitcake. Not bad.

Taste comprises candied orange peel, dates, sweet ring, candied sugars. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying sweet tasting closure. Ok stuff.

mcberko (14411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2011
12 oz. can, pours a dark amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma of hops upfront, some bready malts, hints of caramel and dark fruits, and a bit of grapefruit. Flavour is a mellow blend of sweet caramel malts, citrus hops and grapefruit, with some subtle spicy notes thrown in there - the flavour dies on the palate very quickly leaving little aftertaste. Nice subtle flavours, but for 8.5%, this lacks a deep flavour profile. Mildly enjoyable.

bhensonb (14094) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Can from Malt & Vine - but the can ABV is 8.5%. Pours dark ruddy copper with a creamy light tan head. Aromas of resin and darkish fruit. Near full bodied with creamy carb. Flavor is pine resin with some accompanying darkish fruit character (can states brewed with dates!). A good beer which could stand imperialization.

Tmoney99 (13475) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Draft. Poured hazy brown copper with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet spice, fruit and hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth fruit bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met.
