3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This definitely looks the part of an Old Ale... itís dark orange/brown in color with an off-
white head and minimal, slow carbonation. Great lacing! The nose reminds me of a pub
table, woody, earthy, grainy, and with the definitive characteristics of an ale vermented
with English yeast. In the mouth it has a hop flavor thatís much like dirt-covered soap
packaged in an old wooden chest. Itís full-bodied and, yes, dirty, with very little (if any)
residual sweetness. Toasted malts seem to make up most of the malt profile, and the
alcohol presence is indeterminable by the flavor. (512) did a really great job on making a
tasty, traditional, low-alcohol Old Ale. Not quite up to the standards of an anniversary
beer in my opinion, though.
