This Old English Ale is full-bodied and well rounded. The deep mahogany color and sweet malty flavor makes it a favorite.

Strykzone (6760) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2016
Sampled at the brewpub. A lot of beige foam leaves a layer on the glass. An earthy malty and grainy beer. It seems to be an authentic version. It is a style I always enjoy and am happy to see available in the US. Very light hop notes give just a little bitternress. Soft fruit is nice. Sweet rich malts carry this one. I like it and could drink a lot of this. But now I look at the ABV and question my life as a beer ticker!

Draft at the brewpub. This beer poured a dark, caramel color with a nice light tan, creamy head. Aroma was notes of sweet caramel notes, some dried fruits. Flavor was nice caramel notes, touch of fruits, light bitterness.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy brown-amber colored body with a finger-width, dense and foamy, light brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a soapy lacing. Aroma is medium sweet caramels with a touch of bready toffee, a few fruity esters, and a light grass. Flavor is similar. Caramels, some toffee bread, a few fruity esters, and a light grassy bitterness. Finishes clean and smooth before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a straightforward English Ale. Nothing special, but not bad.

Really solid beer from a cool brewpub. Dark brown with a khaki head, mild nose. Taste’s of caramel malt sweetness, slight alcohol, not very bitter and overall nutty.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2011
Draught at the brewpub. Pours very dark mahogany with beige head. The aroma is pitted fruits, a little bit of oak, a little bit of caramel, and little hints of artificial banana. The flavor is peanut shells, a little bit of caramel, and earthy bitterness. The peanut shell taste lingers into the aftertaste.

DrnkMcDermott (3008) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Taster at the brewpub. Nut brown malt smell, with not much hop in the nose. A thin, brown head. Taste has a dollop of chocolate up front. I’m noticing the whole establishment has a sort of estery smell, like they just pitched yeast in the brewhouse, and that may permeate to the beer I’m drinking. A backing of toffee in the malt after a few sips. Quite warm and filling. Just a note of light alcohol in the finish.

DalzAle (2026) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2011
On tap. Clear, very dark brown pour, lasting carbonation and a sweet aroma of a little dark fruit. Flavor was nice rich dark caramel and a little nutty with a pleasant warming aftertaste. Solid beer, I would buy this all the time during the fall & winter if I lived nearby.

Pours reddish brown with a thin beige head. Aroma is caramel, light roast, brown sugar, with an herbal note. Flavor is burnt caramel, earthy notes, herbal hops, and some boozy notes.
