COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Jubilee Ale evolved from the Old Ale tradition of beers, a brewing style emphasizing rich malt flavors, caramel sweetness, and a balanced finish. The result is a beer suited for a summer picnic and yet robust enough to stand up to a stiff winter wind. Jubilee Ale makes any season a time of joy and celebration.

This is the Island Pale Ale. Super bitter. Massive bread and malts. Pretty good. Had this on draft at island brewing taproom.

bytemesis (2931) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear reddish amber with a small tan head and nice lacing. Aroma is molasses, caramel, light spices. Aroma is about the same, medium sweet, minimal bitterness, some zesty astringence. Medium body. Not bad, but not a lot going on

I’m not a big Old Ale fan because most tend to be quite sweet. This on the other hand was just a tad sweet with a nice dry finish. Got some caramel and dark fruits in this brew.

brokensail (10596) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Dark amber in color with a khaki head. Opens up with bread, toffee, and toasted malt. A little bit of caramel in there as well. Mild floral and earthy hop aromas, a touch of metal to it, too. The flavor is quite sweet. Toast, caramel, toffee, and an overripe fruit note. A bit of tart prune juice, a tinge of metal on the finish. Very light hops.

kbutler1 (1349) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Bottle. GABF Silver Medal Winner 2002 and Gold Award at LA County Fair 2003, seems like it has a little pedigree. Pours a deep copper color with a light tan head that quickly disappears and collars around the glass. Malty, biscuit, nutty, caramel, and slight spice in the nose. Overall, not a bad smell but not great. Medium mouthfeel. Taste is...not that great. Slightly roasty with a perfume like note. Backbone really falls apart mid way through the game. This has an odd sweetness to it that doesn’t work for me. Lingering bitterness. Overall, meh, had once, not need to try again.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2011
From the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center Denver 17/09/2010 Floral malt aroma. Bronze mid brown coloured and fruity with a hint of dryness and bitterness in a malt finish.

BMan1113VR (7820) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 30, 2010
Tap and bottle. Pours with a hazed brown body with hardly any head retention. The fleeting image of a head was khaki colored...I think. Aroma of brown sugar, nuts, cinnabun, tobacco, molasses, soil. Very sweet smelling. Flavor is sour milk, nuts, cinnamon, earth, vomit, and showing obvious signs of infection. From the tap the smell was not as good but the flavors were only marginally better. Too much tannic extraction. Licorice, vegital. Currants. Ash. Watery. Drain pour.

IrishBoy (3803) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Bomber from Bevmo, Salinas Nose of toffee, caramel, and mustiness (is that why they call it an Old Ale?) Cherry copper with a medium beige head. Flavor is raisins, light bitterness, and a hint of licorice.

nimbleprop (4543) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 27, 2009
On tap at Opal restaurant in Santa Barbara CA. Terrible pour from the waiter (sorry) but it came with a slight, almost absent whispy white head and a translucent, nut brown body. Aroma was alright, caramel malts, slightly bread and crackers also a bit fruity. Flavor was all caramel malts, crackers, bread, slightly nutty. Finish was dry. The commercial description of this is ridiculous when you finally have a chance to drink it, but it was generally OK.
