COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(512) FOUR is a classic English-style Strong Ale. The biscuity Maris Otter and caramelly Crystal malts contribute notes of toast, toffee, and dried fruits, which are perfectly balanced with a blend of authentic UK Fuggle and East Kent Golding hops. Dry-hopped with Northdown, (512) FOUR is a complex and satisfying ale.

On tap at Flying Saucer Beerfeast. Pours a cloudy amber with a medium frothy off white head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is caramel malt and raisin. Thick mouthfeel with a sweet malt and caramel flavor with nice lingering dry finish. A good English strong ale from 512.

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.
