Old Ales derive their name from the fact that they undergo a long period of ageing in the package before release. The historical roots of this classic ale style are English. Old Ales tend to be moderately high in alcohol, medium to full in body, and somewhat sweet and vinous in flavor. Okini (meaning ‘thank you’ in Kansai dialect) Old Ale is the brainchild of our former brewer, Molly Browning. She formulated the recipe and brewed the beer on her final day of work back in August, 2008 and she did so in a spirit of thanks to all those who had given her support and friendship during her tenure in Japan with Baird Beer. Molly, we say ‘thanks’ in return.

KyotoLefty (8125) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 23, 2010
Draught at Qbrick. Deep amber-brown color with no head. Aroma of dark fruit, cherry, oxidized hops. Rich, sweet malt, not much hop flavor. Syrupy and rather dull. A bit cloying, without the aged character an old ale should have. Not much fun.
