COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - Chritmas. Year round bottle conditioned.
First brewed shortly after the foundation of the brewery, OTT is a very rich, dark ale. We use 4 different malt styles - pale, crystal, chocolate and malted wheat - each of which has a unique character. Local Fuggles hops added at various stages during the boil enhances the beer’s depth. Old Tongham Tasty is named after the village where we brew in a farm on the edge of the Surrey Hills. Its complexity drinks ’like a festival of different tastes on the tongue’ - at least that’s how it was described after a lengthy sampling session.

(Bottle 50 cl) Beautiful, clear orangey brown with a fine, lightly creamy, beige head. Sweetish, vinous aroma of dates and other dried fruit. Medium body with some roasted malt and then these incredibly delicate flavours of dried fruit without excessive sweetness. Actually it ends fairly dry. 201006

Dark brown color. Aroma of chocolate and caramel. Good body strength, good mix of caramel and chocolate malt, with some sweetness and strong bitterness, in the end there is a rising roasted malt. Quite good.

Dark amber color. Some roasted malt aroma, a touch of carbonic gas in the nose. Full mouth, beautiful roasted malt character, well balanced by the body structure, some sweetness (only 6%ABV for an OG of 1066), malt, caramel. Beautiful; with some fruitness would be perfect (such as Henry’s, Crouch Vale Crackling...).
