Bottle (4.7% ABV, Maris Otter, Crystal and Wheat with just Golding hops) and served in nonic Imperial pint glass: Pours a nice coppery hue with a fading head and not much lace. Suppose to be an Olde Ale but really just a ever so slightly beefed up ordinary bitter. Nice EKG character, apple berry undertone and biscuity Maris Otter but the Crystal malt is sort of flabby and obtrusive. Bought it ’cause of the name honestly... not expecting much and still did not get what I expected which was an old ale which this is NOT!!!

Pours a nice chestnut out of the bottle. Malty smell with some spices. Tastes of spices with a wanting sense.

Dark copper with a small bubbly head. Has a small sweet winter fruit aroma and taste but its relatively smooth texture is its most pleasant aspect.

16.09 ounce bottle. Copper colored with a brief beige head that disappears immediately. Baked apple and caramel malt nose. Crisp tangy toasted malt flavor upfront. Bready malt undertones. Faint floral hops in finish. Rather average.

500ml bottle from Morrisons. Thin off white head disappears quickly, no lacing. Body is dark ruby amber. Nose is caramel, berries. Flavour of Christmas cake and marzipan, berries and apple. Mouthfeel is quite thin, low carbonation. Decent enough job of getting the festive flavours across.

Patrickctenchi (4394) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Pours deep, dark copper with a rough-bubbled, beige head. Berry, caramel aroma. Taste is bready malt, nut bitter, berry.... A little flat, overall not too bad....just unremarkable.

Bottle morrisons. No head. A v dark amber colour. Aroma is red berrie and malts. Taste is red berries fruity with a good balance of hop and malt. It has a strong carbonation. Nice enough not particularly festive.

Better than their ’Christmas Eve’ offering but nothing special. Sweet, fruity and lightly hopped.

Bottle. Nose of nice dark toffee/caramel malts with sly edges of sweetness and mild fruitiness that’s been put down. Very slight English hops but some pleasant and distinct Old Ale streaks underneath. Beautifully tawny out of the neck but deepens as it collects in the glass to a dull blood red, supports a lacing beige head much the strange consistency of its root beer float counterpart. Light body with little malt tumble and even less carbonation, firm butter/butterscotch character along with the toffee, not all that sweet and drying toward the middle, with soft light bitterness and hints of dark chocolate. I like the subtle Goldings here even if they’re mixed with sulfurous cousins and there’s something of a scrawny rattiness to their bittering quality. On the whole, one to pass the time, and nothing more.

A great gift this holiday season...Pours a clear, deep copper with a buoyant rocky beige head. Nose involves sweet candy, orange peel, bubblegum, light tin, light vinegary British yeast, soft dough, suggestions of cinnamon, light blood, raisin bread. Fairly sweet with some bitterness. Medium bodied, oily, low carb, tacky, with kind of a blah finish. An ok brew. Surprised to see it categorized as an old ale as it’s listed at 4.7% ABV, but what else is it? Mostly, boring.
