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.

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.

Leighton (11431) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Can shared at the Night of Garbage. I got this somewhere in America. Pours clear amber with a frothy tan head. The nose has aged, dusty pine, dried fruits, bread. 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.

bhensonb (11272) - 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.
