COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brilliantly golden, Jasperilla is a unique take on an old ale. It has a complex yet subtle aroma - a blend of hops, citrus, and biscuity notes. Just the right amount of hops balances the mild maltiness and alcohol flavors. We named this beer after our dog Jasper because he has brought so much joy to our lives. And this time of year, we wanted to spread a little of that love and good will around. We got Jasper from a local dog rescue group called Forgotten Friends. He has been a constant source of laughs, smiles, and goodwill that kept our spirits high all the late nights and long hours at the brewery. While Jasperilla is only available for a short time, we are reserving the bulk of the batch for next year. So get it while you can. This old ale is so good and smooth that you'll beg like a dog for more, roll over for a belly rub, howl at the moon...you get the picture.

Thanks to rustychiles for the share on this. This beer is very strange. Comes across as an oily IPA, but is apparently imbued with what is undeniably treacle. The oiliness is a new dimension to me. This is definitely an American interpretation of the style, not what I would consider in the style, but good. Unique and worthy of drinking, but not what youíre looking for if you want a good, traditional old ale.

Sampled at the 2014 Untapped festival in Fort Worth. Pours a cloudy golden amber with a white head that dissipates nearly completely. Aroma has lots of sweet caramel and dark sweet grains with a big of grass. Flavor has sweetness throughout with notes of cookie, toffee, caramel and grains.

Beerenberger (1379) - Fischer, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottled 2012: Fruity aroma. Pours a rich clear copper with no head and minimal lacing. The taste is slightly sweet with a bitterness that grows into the finish. Fruit, bread, with hints of nuts, and some alcohol warmth in the end. Medium body with medium carbonation. Mouthfeel is soft. Overall, a savory beer. I hope to get another bottle when the weather is cooler.

2011 bottle from HEB. Smell is sweet, taste is bitter. I love old ales, but this isnít what Iíve come to expect. It might be a bit better if the sweetness has time to age more (maybe?). Itís not bad, but I donít really like it.

Not great. Light for an old ale.... Well it was light compared to a lot of the old ales that I have had lately. Nutty, toffee, caramel. Popcorn. A bit hollow in the mid palate. Interesting but not that good.
