COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally brewed in 2005 as the first in our annual Decadence series, AleSmith Olde Ale follows the tradition of classic British-style Old Ales. This rich, malt-forward ale showcases soft notes of currants and dried fruit along with complex dark sugars, all of which are balanced by a subtle bitterness derived from the addition of traditional English hops. AleSmith Olde Ale is ready to be enjoyed now or it can be aged upwards of twenty years to further enhance its amazing depth of flavor. A hearty ale designed to please Bacchus himself!

An alchohol-braced sweetness greets the palate on tasting. Masculine but tender, formidable, but understanding. Definitely worth a taste.

PeterA (340) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 5, 2005
The aroma was fruity/citrusy. The appearance was that of a cloudy apple cider. The flavor was apple-ish with hints of malts. The palate started out sweet, but finished bitter. This was a good, almost great beer.

hopscotch (10130) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2008 Bottle... A&K’s4thAHBT... Hazy, orange ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. The aroma delivers chocolate dipped pine cones floating atop a sea of rich toffee. The flavor is a medley of juniper berries, booze and pistacios. Very well balanced. Medium sweet, but also medium bitter from the alcohol and hops. Full-bodied and ultra creamy with lively carbonation. Finishes bitter-sweet, boozy, dry and grassy.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 4, 2005
750ml bottle: It looks like this was being sampled at both DC and Copenhagen holiday gatherings, which is pretty crazy. Slightly hazy ruby/amber body, tiny particles visable floating around, with a small beige head. Aroma is sweet fruits, alcohol, sugar. Taste is a little too sweet with notes of raisin, grapes, light carrot, caramel, and some alcohol heat. Medium bodied, watery, and just seems a bit under-attenuated. Unimpressive.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Loads of sweetness in the nose, lots of prunes and some alcohol. Dark amber body with a small tan head. Loads of sweet prunes in the flavor, lots of alcohol heat which becomes too much and makes it hot in the mouth.

Ungstrup (30746) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2006 A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol and lots of fruit, leaning towards the over ripe end of life. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, prunes, over ripe fruits, wood, and alcohol, that prickles the tongue. The end is dry and woody.
