Jerrytall is an “Old” or “Stock Ale” in reference to 19th century breweries that would age this style a full year before serving. Old ales were normally amber to dark brown in color and malty sweet with complex acidic and dark fruity notes. Against the Grain’s take on the style obviously does not include the one year aging period, but we brewed our version with high quality English Maris Otter barley and acidulated malt to give a bit of an acidic tang.. Then we hopped liberally with English Nugget and German Hersbrucker. Fermented with a Scottish style yeast, resulting in a complex, rich and malty ale.

jredmond (7642) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Draft at Torst with Clockwork and Joel. Pours a deep body with light lacing. Aroma is weird - dark fruit, plastic, spice, nutmeg and almost similar to a mead. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of spice, mint, herbal character, weird plastic/honey flavor that I sometimes get out of meads. Very strange and unique.

jstraw (1965) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Draft at Jerry’s. Copper with modest, whispy white head / Delicate, peculiar nose of sour grass and turning melon rind / Medium body, somewhat sour and acidic, some sweetness, excellent balance and lightly bitter finish / Elegant flavors of fresh caramel, melon rind, grass, nut, / Positively odd, but I grew to really like it.

b3shine (8190) - Indiana, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Draft to taster at AtG. Looks solid; a mostly-transparent burnt-orange with thin white lacing. Smells and tastes solid; sweet malt and caramel. Average on the palate. A touch boozy, but still quite enjoyable.

On tap in a sampler glass. Pours copper/brown with an off-white head. Aroma of cereal and caramel malts plus a good amount of floral hops. Flavor the same. Average to smooth texture. A pretty good beer.

ContemplateBeer (2007) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Aroma of figs, nuts, red grape and sweet bread. Appearance is light copper with white head. Flavor of sweet, complex malts overall; there is definitely some sort of fruitiness going on. Palate is bubbly and soft. Tasty.
