COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sometimes you’ve just got to take it back to where it all began. And we took it way back with this offering. Old School is a British-style pale ale brewed with organic malts that feature Caramel and Munich malts for an easy drinking yet full-bodied character. The real darling of Old School, though, is in the hops. We went back and dug up some East Kent Goldings, traditionally used in all ales of British origin with a floral nose and an earthy, spicy, slightly sweet flavor. From start to finish, this is a great beer for celebrating the good times: past, present and future.

BMan1113VR (7854) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a golden body and a small off-white head. Aroma is slightly fruity with caramel and a bit of faded hops. Taste is caramel with light hops. Very forgettable (no "seed planted in my soul"). Light carbonation.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Bottle. . Body-amber with a medium ring of bubbles. Taste-a pale ale without a lot of hops. A passable, if very average and uninspired, pale ale.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Bottle. Really light copper color, crystal clear with a head like dishwater. Nose of lemons, a little hops....and not a lot else. It starts off OK with some bitterness up front that fades to lemony sourness and a mild skunk finish. It leaves my mouth feeling soured with some herbal hints lingering for awhile.

emacgee (4010) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Bomber from Asheville. Pours a light copper amber with noticeable chill haze. The head is 2 fingers thick sticky, foamy, offwhite. The nose is kind of subdued, doesn’t come out to you very much, picked up some piny hops, a little corn, sweet malt background, English feel? Flavor shows some corn, has a spicy bitterness, mildly sweet, well balanced but not well done. Palate is mildly bitter and crisp.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 15, 2009
A dark copper color with a minimal white head. The aroma contains some caramel, lemons, and a strong herbal deal. The flavor contains some caramel, lemons, grassy notes, and some ginseng? This beer was ok but I dont get the herbal overload with this brewery.

Drake (8503) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Sampled on draft at the brewpub. Pours a light amber color with a large head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, pineapple, citrus and a tart note. Taste is caramel, butterscotch, light fruits and a strong hop finish. Medium bodied.

Draft pours straw with some white head. Heavy buttery, floral clean fruit hop aroma. Flavor bitters in the finish.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 21, 2008
Sampled at the 2008 Knoxville Brewers’ Jam. Amber in the glass with a creamy off-white head that settles to a ring. Light aroma of sweet caramel and honey. The flavor finds a nice malt and hop mix with an earthy backing. Medium body and sweet throughout.
