COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This bottle contains an India Pale Ale from a bygone era. An era of towering sailing ships, burgeoning empires and world shaping beers. This is an ale hand crafted with British malts and English hops to recreate the epic IPAs that were sent on monumental ocean voyages from England to India by sea in the 1800s.

Old World IPA is an attempt by punk post modern Scottish Brewers to pay tribute to a 200 year old odyssey and heritage with a healthy dose of swash-buckling adventure.

66cl bottle best before 14-10-14. Nose: very English, doughy, some hops. Taste: sweeter than expected: malt, caramel and some bitterness. Ok, not more

Cool_Bond (1206) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2014
Good smell of much caramel and fruit. The taste is quite bitter with some roasted malt. Bitterness in the aftertaste fills the mouth with a good fruity taste for a long time. Good beer but not particularly special. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (40:-). Maltig och fruktig, kryddor, gräs, en del rostade toner, medelfyllig till fyllig, medelsöt, ganska bra beska. Besk avslutning med rostade toner.

Lowenbrau (1862) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 24, 2014
660ml bottle @Cimmeria, 24-03-2014.
In short: an aromatic bitter ale.
Pours quite clear with whiet head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Grassy, flowers, sweet aromas. Medium body, sverage carbonation, some crispy texture. Taste is grassy, malty, some honey like flavours. Much more aromas than flavours, a bit unbalanced.

tomekk1978 (404) - POLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Barwa: bursztynowa, klarowna. Piana biała, średnio pęcherzykowa, szybko opadająca, oblepiająca szkło. Wysycenie minimalne. Aromat: słodowy i alkoholowy, chmiel niewyczuwalny. Smak: słodko- gorzki. Nuty owocowe z wyraźną słodowością. Trochę jakby leżakowany w beczce, drewniany. Na końcu lekko kwaskowy. Całkiem przyzwoite piwo w stylu klasycznej IPA. Aromaty i smak mniej wyraziste niż obecnie uzyskiwane z dodatkiem chmielu amerykańskiego, ale znacznie lepsze niż w większości przypadków piw tego typu warzonych obecnie w Anglii. Warte spróbowania, ale taka pojemność trudna do przyswojenia na raz.

larsniclas (5520) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2014
Bottled from Systembolager Hazy golden/orange with a small, bubbly head. Toffee, grassy hops and tidbits in the aroma. A bit too heavy on the alcohol. Marzipan, some toffee and grassy hops in the flavour. Medium bitterness.

Flaska 660ml från SB. Fin gyllene grumlig vätska. Doftar frisk humle och frukt. Fruktig smak med bra kropp. Sticker till som jag vill. Ganska klen eftersmak, men lämnar en bra munkänsla. Bra IPA!
