3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Bubes. Pours bright amber with small off-white head. The aroma is bready with some dark fruits and bergamot orange. The flavor has some light caramel, plum, and even a little bit of bitter chocolate. It finishes with red grapes and a bit of grainy bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Brewpub. Poured a light copper shade with no head. Light carbination. Tasted like a english pale ale. Not sure what makes this an "old ale". Not too impressed. I’d like to try again to see if I missed something.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very similar to an APA or even an IPA, copper color with a very generous off-white head, excellent lacing around the glass, big hoppy nose, very hoppy flavors as well, dry & spicy, notes of earth & grass, good malt profile to balance it all out, dry & warming effect in the finish & aftertaste, great ale
